“We love Kids Yoga with Jessica! My kids have attended her summer camps and special classes for many years. Her patience and knowledge has truly connected with all of my children. My girls love to show me their poses and how to take deep breaths. Jessica has a unique ability to connect with kids of all ages through the peaceful practice of yoga.”
- Alison S., St. Louis
