"Yoga with Jess was an incredible experience for my class of fourth graders. They were able to absorb so many valuable strategies and techniques related to mindfulness, and that was evident after the very first week. I found it especially notable when Jess asked the students for a volunteer to lead the class in a sun salutation. Not only did almost every single child's hand shoot into the air, but the fact that so many kids were willing and able to lead their classmates through a sequence of several yoga poses was incredibly exciting to watch. With focus on attentive listening, body awareness, deep breathing, and teamwork, I think our experience with Jess really got our school year off on the right foot, and I'm confident that my students would agree."
