If you are already a member, you have likely seen a handful of names pop-up over and over on our Members Only Facebook group. If you’re not yet a member, you’re missing out! (...and can learn more about our program here).
For our second Meet the Team featured post, we introduce…
Jessica is the newest member of the Yogi Flight School team and she could not be more excited!
She is an aspiring yoga ninja, RYT200 yoga instructor, a writer, poet, holistic nutrition enthusiast, lover of life, adoring mother of two, badass wife, and an avid believer in healing through art.
Jessica found yoga accidently. She didn’t go in search of it - yoga found her. While she began as a power yoga student, she eventually branched into other schools of yoga as well. She also has a strong connection to the practice of chanting and it’s soulful vibrations.
Using her daily meditation and journaling/reflection practice, Jessica has ambitions to become a published author of novels, children’s books, memoirs, and personal development pieces.
Jessica had been eyeing the YFS course for about a month before she purchased the self study program in January of 2021. While she had been a yoga practitioner for many years, and was already a registered 200 hour yoga teacher, she’d never been able to nail the super cool arm balances and inversions that she had so desperately wanted to.
It was a pleasant surprise when she began watching Nathania in the YFS course modules. Unlike many “typical” yoga teachers, Nathania was relatable. She openly swore, drank iced coffee, and was totally open about her short-comings and personal struggles - and her attitude was alluring. Jessica knew that she found her tribe.
A couple of months later, with her professional background in customer relations, project management, and experience in web design and social media, she fell into the lap of YFS (or more accurately, placed herself there quite insistently).

Favorite yoga asana:
Child’s pose. Really. But shoulder stand is a close second.
Far too many to list. I just want to do beautiful things, in beautiful places, with beautiful people.
