‘Jessica’s Iyengar yoga class is truly inspirational.  She is an extremely talented instructor who is always positive, compassionate and motivating.  Every detail is well thought out and organized.  The classes are informative, fun and great exercise. I am so thrilled to have found this class and look forward to many more!’- Stephanie Lambeck
 
‘Before moving to Ladysmith I was a regular student at The Iyengar Yoga Centre of Victoria. I checked out Jessica’a class and immediately felt accepted and supported. I have been a regular student  for a year and I find Jessica to be a skilled and caring teacher. I highly recommend her, and her classes.’ – Gerry Brimacombe

“I have practiced a variety of yoga styles for many years and am only now hearing through Jessica’s Iyengar classes, how to pose properly. Jessica demonstrates point by point how to position and offers instruction which ensures safe and effective practice. I always feel grateful for our class.” – Celia Norris

“After a few weeks of teaching by Jessica, I am in love with this amazing yoga practice. Jessica is cheerful, professional, exceptionally knowledgeable and always fully prepared for the classes. She gives excellent group instructions and individual corrections to bring out the best in each of us in our practice. I have re-registered for additional classes and plan to make Jessica’s classes and Iyengar yoga a basic in my life.” – Deirdre Saunders

  

“Yoga allows you to rediscover a sense of wholeness in your life, where you do not feel like you are constantly trying to fit broken pieces together.” B.K.S. Iyengar
