Jenessa Stark Yoga
My approach is integral—meaning you'll leave our sessions with bits of wisdom that you can integrate into your daily life. These tools for life might look like simple movements you can do at your desk, breathing exercises that reduce stress, or seeds of perspective that bloom when you need them and make life a little bit easier.
I aim to honor traditions of yoga, but also meet you where you are right now. This means that the practice will be adapted for your needs.
Physcially, I emphasize helping you increase structural stability and flexibility. When your flexibility is matched by balanced strength, your whole body is better supported for life.
My students see improvement in the following areas:
Hip and pelvic floor awareness
Increased shoulder mobility
Thoracic spine mobility
Reduced or eliminated sciatica pain
Grip strength improvement
Overall improved range of motion
Breath is a key element of yoga, and in our sessions it is used throughout the practice to calm your mind. By practicing control of your breath, your mind becomes focused and a meditative state is much more accessible.
Some benefits of breath work include reduction in stress, anxiety, and blood pressure, plus better digestion and better sleep.
There is no greater joy than what I feel when I witness when my students realize their ability to help and heal themselves through yoga and mindfulness.

How did you get started teaching?
Seeing so many loved ones rely on conventional medicine led me to seek out my own path to wellness. Once I fell into a local yoga community, I was hooked and enamoured by the empowered souls around me. I was home.
What types of students have you worked with?

Older adults looking to improve balance and mobility
Athletes looking to increase ROM and flexiblity
Either of the above looking to reduce stress and improve recovery
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Do not settle on just any yoga class or teacher. Your teacher is someone you'll be sharing your time, space and energy with. Find someone who speaks to you and your needs.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
You should always bring up any injuries, illnesses or conditions (even pregnancy) with your yoga teacher. For all the benefits of yoga, there are also contraindications, so ask if there is anything you should avoid or be mindful of.
