Hi, I'm Jess and teaching yoga is my dharma - my duty in life. At least in this lifetime.
I discovered asana and yoga philosophy during a difficult of period of life, more than a decade ago. Yoga has elevated every aspect of my life ever since, and I'm honored to share this practice with you.
"Buddha means, simply, awake. Jess is awake. Alive, joyful, fun - and, most importantly, caring - one of the most dynamic yoga teachers out there."Waylon, USA
"Jess is extremely knowledgeable about yoga and its many branches of study and offshoots of interest. She is also incredibly generous of spirit and attracts very interesting and kind people to her group. Highly recommend."Michelle, USA
Since becoming a household name with the 30 Day Yoga Program I have led multiple retreats, teacher trainings, and workshops in Morocco, Mexico, Germany, Spain, Italy, the United States, Thailand and France.
These images give you an idea of what it's like to study and practice with me in different settings all over the world.
You can practice with me online on doyouyoga, yogiapproved, and on my ever-expanding youtube channel.
Being a proper yoga-nerd, I also write about different aspects of the practice. Not just on my blog, but also for publications like the Elephant Journal or the San Francisco Yoga Magazine. Hear me interviewed on The Yoga Teacher Resource podcast as well as the Business of Yoga speaker series with Amy McDonald.
Students repeatedly tell me they appreciate these things the most about my style of teaching:
- knowledge and clarity
- passion for the practice
- the combination of fun and depth
- inspiration and motivation

Behind the scenes
Besides passionately teaching and practicing yoga, I am also a certified Thai Massage Therapist and dedicated to living a healthy, holistic, and adventurous life.
I have always been a foodie, a sports enthusiast, and a lover of words, people, and big ideas.
I split my time between Berlin, Germany and the open road. But my true home is somewhere between the mountains and the ocean. Or just about anywhere with a big, open sky.
In this interview with Douyouyoga you can read more about my life, attitudes and yoga practice.
