TEACHER Jessica Boyd
I came to yoga, as a teenager, through the wonders of VHS technology and occasional classes at the private health and racquet club where I worked. Through the years my practice was on again/off again until a car accident and subsequent series of misdiagnosed issues left me struggling and seeking help. I sought out the support of a yoga studio and have been firmly on my mat ever since.
My focus is on slow, safe, accessible, alignment-based practices with a dose of deep rest, somatics, and connective tissue work for greater range of motion through which students are able to find ease and connection to their breath. I love that there is more to this practice than just the forms we make with our bodies and work to integrate that greater meaning through finding stillness, meditation and participation in the subtle energetics.
I attained my 200 hr RYT certification through Svasta Yoga School in Houston, Tx and have completed several additional trainings including: Transformational Restful Yoga for “Every” Body & Yoga Therapeutics with Melissa Smith, Yin Yoga with Rhia Robinson at Houston Yoga Collective, Expedition Balance with Carl Salazar, Reiki Level One and various workshops with the likes of Melina Meza, Kristina Keller, Rod Stryker and Christina Sell. There are even more trainings and retreats in my sights in the future. Every student I interact with and every training I attend offers me an opportunity to learn something and I love sharing this practice with others, especially being able to welcome new yogis into the fold and help them find their path.
