This slow and focused practice enhances your ability to feel your spine and breathe through areas of tension. With an increased body awareness allows you to achieve more sustainable and efficient results.
Our focus point is to keep the postures simple and repetitive, rather than an overly dynamic practice, allowing you to notice and become aware of the adjustments throughout the mind and the body over time.
On our mat, here in The Studio at Tree of Life Integral Centre, we start to meet our challenges and obstacles as our own reflections, aversions, desires and fears manifesting through the body, into the present moment. It allows us to engage a process of integration, becoming inquisitive instead of judgmental. We become our own kind and wise observer.
This intimate class is designed both for those who are new to the yoga practice, and also seasoned practitioners. It will deepen your practice and challenge your stamina, mental clarity, patience and self compassion.
The slow movement between postures cultivates focus, building on breath awareness and mindfulness. The holding of traditional yoga poses helps detoxify, build strength and conditioning of the body and mind.

Jess transformed my experience and practice of Yoga. She was the first teacher I met who guided me to learning about the true practice of Yoga, an ancient practice far beyond physical asana and by doing so it was a magical pivotal moment for me. It was the beginning moment of changing my life, which now includes daily Yoga and meditation and I’m beyond grateful for having met such an incredible teacher, and soul. She is a humble, radiant and powerful teacher - her classes take you deep within and you experience Yoga far beyond the poses. Life changing stuff.
Jess’s classes are beautiful. They are focused on form, breathing, alignment and flow. She has a wonderful energy. I leave feeling I’ve worked my whole body and mind. Love!!!!
Practicing yoga at the Tree is an essential part of my self care. Jess’s class is a moving form of meditation. Her class allows you to be present with yourself and gives you a great understanding of your body’s alignment and form.
