My body loves this practice and I use what I’ve learned as I walk, sit, go upstairs, etc. as well as in my yoga practice.
Jessica O’Keefe is an inspired yoga teacher. She is intuitive, creative and articulate. I began attending Jessica’s Yoga for Women class at the DYC five or so years ago and have had private sessions with her. I realized immediately that Jessica’s approach to yoga was different. The focus was not on how to achieve the “correct” posture or how hold the pose or sequence of poses. Rather it is about discovering the amazing support system our bodies offer us and how our focus on the way we move supports function, ease and healing. We move from the inside out; from bones and organs and glands. My body loves this practice and I use what I’ve learned as I walk, sit, go upstairs, etc. as well as in my yoga practice. Jessica has wonderfully gentle, intuitive touch; she always seems to know exactly the place in my body that needs information. Rather than a “correction” her touch brings my body into new awareness or memory. I find I move more easily into poses that have been difficult for me. I always leave class feeling light yet grounded, relaxed but full of vitality. If you are new to Jessica’s style of teaching yoga, let go of your notions of what yoga practice is. Be open to a new experience that may surprise you. You have the opportunity to really experience yoga in its true meaning as a mind, body, spirit practice. I find Jessica’s teaching leads me to a deeper awareness of how I live and where I live in my body. ~ Karla - student of 5 years
