Why Yoga?
At this point, I truly can’t imagine my life without it. Yoga came into my life as a form of physical exercise, nothing more than a good sweat with the added benefit of gaining flexibility. Slowly, its teachings and way of life crept its way into my world and changed everything. Yoga has, and continues to, pull me out my lowest times, remind me of my own strength, deeply connect me to my body, and challenge me to grow in all areas of my life. My mat has become my safe space, a place I return to day after day to play, process and grow - physically, mentally and spiritually.


Who or what inspires you?
The women I’m currently surrounded with! I’m constantly in awe of, and inspired by, the connection of the tribe I’m surrounded by. Uplifting and supporting one another in a way I never dreamed of. Living and moving from the HEART.

 

Three adjectives that describe you and your teaching style…
Connected. playful. passionate.

 

Where are you the most fearlessly authentic in your life?
Is it silly if I say that right now it’s on my mat? On my mat I don’t play small. I’m not fearful of being judged. I explore what’s possible, play and experience. I take rest when I need it and I’m not afraid to cry. On my mat I show up exactly how I am in that moment. Yeah, on my mat - and that’s okay, I know it creeps into all other areas of my life.

 

What is something not a lot of people know about you?
I moved A LOT growing up. Every two years or so. I’ve lived all over the US, in Switzerland and in Australia. One day I’ll make it back to Australia!

Jessica Micheletti

Jessica Micheletti hails from Minnesota, has traveled the world and recalls her first experience volunteering at 7 years old at a soup kitchen in downtown Minneapolis. She worked for 15 years in Public Health and 7 years ago stepped away from government work to teach power vinyasa yoga and explore the facets of a life of service. Jessica is a yogi, runner, retired triathlete, philanthropist, and yoga development consultant. She loves trying new things, wine, and cheese. Upon turning 40 she decided that resistance to cupcakes is futile, but moderation reigns. Rock, rap, and top 40 frequently make appearances in her yoga classes and she loves to share stories about her travels, her family, and really anyone who graces her path. She can find a yogic meaning in almost anything. Each day she wakes up and asks, “How can I serve today?”. She's passionate about guiding others to discover and realize their dreams. Jessica believes in miracles.

Jessica is certified through the Yoga Alliance as a Experienced-Registered Yoga Teacher 500 and is a certified Baptiste Yoga Teacher.

This class is a twist on the yogic tradition where students come to practice with a teacher at sunrise. Teachers and students move through traditional sun salutations together and then create a dynamic flow-based class to ambient morning beats to greet the day free and clear. This experience is a great way to connect to the community and your fellow yogi’s. Breathing and moving together reminds us that we are more the same than we are different and through this connection we light up the day! Every class is different yet accessible for all those willing to listen to their body.
