Jesse has nurtured a dedicated yoga practice since 2006 & has shared their passion for healing centered & playful movement on the mat teaching yoga since 2013. From 2015-2020 they ran YogaVibe Rochester with their mother, Julie. YogaVibe offered hatha & vinyasa yoga classes with a focus on providing a variety of body-positive & accessibly priced yoga classes.
During the time the studio was open, Jesse taught over 2,500 public classroom hours, hosted numerous workshops, assisted and led yoga teacher trainings, and has developed unique programming that empowers their students to make their own magic on the yoga mat.
Jesse considers themselves a “forever student” and loves to share what they learn in their own practice with the world around them.
