Jess began her career in East Africa working with governments on preventable eye-care and later established her own mental health charity in Rwanda for vulnerable women and children.
On her return to the UK, she had a career path change and in 2013 undertook an intensive yoga teacher training at The Power Yoga Company. With 8 years’ experience of teaching yoga privately in London, Jess is fully certified with the Yoga Alliance Worldwide. In 2017, she specialised in the teaching of yoga to those with mental and physical disabilities and is also qualified in wheelchair yoga. Her teaching is now based in the Northeast of Corfu where she lives with her husband and son.
Jess fully believes in the healing power of yoga to quieten the daily 'chatter' of our minds and the influence that it has on us physically, emotionally and spiritually: 'Yoga is about taking what we learn on the mat, off the mat and into our daily lives. It all begins and ends with compassion.'
She teaches with warmth, honesty and humour whilst constantly focusing on the breath to guide you through your practice. In addition to scheduled classes, Jess teaches private one to one or small group sessions in the comfort of your villa. She can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07732 129423 for more information.
Jess is also a freelance illustrator and artist. Her work includes illustrations, cards, canvases, personalised wedding invitations and bespoke tote bags. More information can be found at www.jessgrantdesigns.com
Everything that you need lies within yourself. All source of power, all source of strength, all source of love, all source of happiness, and all source of peace lies within yourself.
Vinyasa Yoga is a style of Yoga derived from Ashtanga, Sri. Pattabhi Jois’s eight limbed Yoga path.
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a vigourous and intellectually stimulating style of Yoga which links the movement of the body with the breathe in a continual flow.
This class is open to all levels of practitioners.
The asanas are taught in a flowing style in which we move with the breath to create internal heat, challenging the body while quieting the mind. Modifications are offered to lessen or intensify the asana practice, enabling students to work at their own pace.
The quieter you become
