Neuroscience of Yoga with Jessica Kimak
Jessica’s first experience with yoga was an MTV yoga DVD back in high school. She took some time to fall into a deeper practice but when she did it helped cure a back injury she developed in college. She is currently a teacher at The River Yoga and Home Collective. She brings her love for neuroscience into every class combining science and the “spiritual stuff” in beautiful ways that brings students walking away from class feeling more connected to their body, mind and spirit. She has training in Kids yoga through Young Warriors. She has been a trainer for Street Yoga (trauma informed yoga) and Breath for Change (training for school teachers). She loves teaching yoga to all ages as a tool to connect to the mind in deeper ways.
