What is most compelling to me, is helping people become the person they are meant to be- through yoga, unveiling full capacity and authenticity: body, mind and soul. And it’s more of a process of undoing. We are whole, yoga helps us return there. The practise of Iyengar yoga, helps up stay there- and go deeper than we limit ourselves.
I am Jessica Lowry of Align with Jessica. I am a certified Iyengar Yoga Instructor and CAEA professional Actor. I offer services that align my practise in Iyengar yoga and in the art and craft of theatre/performance.
Align with Jessica offers Iyengar yoga for every body. Explore a practical and accessible yoga for beginners and all students. The focus of the practise begins with precision in alignment (ie: is your posture in any given pose supporting you correctly.) Students learn the impact of posture on their bodies, their minds and their spirits and we learn to undo habits- step by step.

Why find an Iyengar teacher?
Teachers committed to excellent standards within the Iyengar Association of Canada (IYAC) undergo years of rigorous training, study, and testing to achieve Iyengar certification. An Iyengar instructor is required to maintain 50 hrs of professional development a year. The work is safe, (props are used to support and as learning tools), it is progressive, therapeutic with detailed hands on instruction. It is also highly creative and you’ll find there are so many ways to learn one pose.
The joy of undoing habits that hold you back is near! Come learn and step by step, class by class, practise to unveil and feel your authentic self. (and keep growing!)

“You do not need to seek freedom in a different land, for it exists with your own body, heart, mind, and soul.”
I used to be a wayward yogi dipping my toes in a lot of different ‘yoga’. Want to know why I’ve committed years to practising and certifying in Iyengar Yoga?
