Happy New Year
Wishing you a very Happy New Year and a great 2019!
I have been busy over the festive break, changing my name from “Jess Yoga and Wellness” to “Jai Mā Yoga”, finding new venues and times for all classes, and even having a bit of family and chill time!!
The new name is to mark my finishing my British Wheel of Yoga 300 hour yoga teaching certificate. Jai Mā is Sanskrit for , roughly translated, “in praise of the Universal Mother!”. (There is never just one interpretation of Sanskrit.) This actually refers to Mothers in a broad sense , so the archetype of the Divine Mother , Mother Earth, and actual Mothers and Mothers – to- be, who I particularly love to work with!
So, I am very pleased to publish my new timetable and newly updated website, and share the new venues for my classes, X10 fitness in Kingsteignton and Pretzel Studio in Bovey Tracey! Click on the meus for more info.
I have two spaces left on this Sunday’s workshop, 10am-1pm at King St Studios, Newton Abbot. This is a lovely, flowing, easeful yoga style suitable for women at all stages of life. You are welcome if you are pregnant/ postsnatal/ perimenopausal/ looking to conceive, and I aim for you to come away feeling inspired and more balanced! We will focus on pelvic floor awareness and gentle abdominal toning; practices that cultivate Shakti (female energy); pair work to get a great stretch and feel supported by a partner; and blissful restorative poses where we stay in one position for around 7 minutes just letting the weight of the body sink into the earth and receiving deep rest.
There will be tea and homemade vegan cake to finish, with a chance to chat.
£25. Book via firstname.lastname@example.org or call me 07707297316
Yoga: The Sunday sessions is my weekly open class. Suitable for anyone (over the age of 16) who wants to get peaceful, feel great in their body , and start their week on a high 🙂 Includes slower, restorative practices for quieting the mind and awakening deeper wisdom, as well as stronger, flowing yoga which will raise your heart rate and strengthen you from within. Balances and inversions are worked towards in a way that starts where you are at but challenges you to explore what your body can do! Anyone can benefit from these postures with the right guidance and props!

After searching for the right training programme for a good few years, I am pleased as punch to say that I will , as of 24th June 2017, be a student of Tara Fraser, under the British Wheel of yoga, studying for a 300 hour yoga teaching Certificate.
This means i can practice teaching generic yoga classes whilst on the course. (I have already been teaching yoga for 7 years but only to specific groups: Mums and babies, etc)
I feel utterly ready and very happy to be able to offer this and already have a lovely long list of people who have expressed an interest in coming!
The style of yoga will be a mixed bag of hatha yoga; a mixture of what i have been learning and practicing myself for the last 18 years, ( influences too many to mention! I enjoy a more challenging practice at times, love an uplifting piece of music or two , and I also love slower, mindful, relaxing and grounding yoga) ..plus what i learn from Tara, and what i already teach ( a gentle style focusing on inner stability and with lots of restorative practices)
This class will be open to anyone over the age of 13 yrs.
Drop in price £9 per session, £7.50 if booked in advance as a block of 6 ( you have 8 weeks to use it)
I look forward to yoga- ing with you 🙏🏻🌈🌞🕉
