Profile: Since a very young age, Jessica has been exploring a variety of activities including gymnastics, martial arts, folkloric dance, and was formally trained as a classical ballet dancer. Her passion about body movement techniques included a deep curiosity about physiology which led her to pursue a career in life sciences.
Born in Mexico, Jessica moved to Australia in 2008 as a neuroscientist. After trying out yoga for the very first time in 2010, she found her old injuries dissipated, fitness levels increased, aided in managing the stresses of a modern busy life, and supported her in the adaption to a new country.
In 2011, Jessica completed her Yoga Teacher Training program accredited by the Yoga Teachers Association of Australia. Soon after she became a full time yoga teacher as well as teaching a unique yoga dance style - Asanadance (www.asanadance.com.au).
