Christina's secret superpower is teaching high schoolers while sneaking in yoga lingo and calm. Her most favorite thing is coaxing others into practicing with her in the studio - especially her rugby loving boyfriend before his tournaments three times a year #guiltypleasure. There's nothing better than finishing class with a first timer who is blissed out and fired up to practice again.
Shelley is a kale-smoothie-drinking, goal-smashing junkie-- she recently smashed her goal of climbing to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Shelley is an Africa Yoga Project ambassador and an Olive Tree Yoga Foundation board member, as well as a Lululemon Athletica ambassador! She is committed to building community and empowering people wherever she goes.
Shelley lives in downtown Savannah, GA with her husband and 3 dogs.
Her love of the ocean and being outdoors made teaching stand up paddle yoga classes a natural progression. Along with her husband Ryan, Jessica continues to lead the Island SUP Yoga Teacher Training program based in Aruba.
In addition to teaching at DDY, Jessica is a contributing guide for the online yoga platform Oneoeight.com. She is passionate about sharing yoga to help others live life in their fullest self-expression – both on land and in the water!
Her secret superpower is that she can burp on command louder than a grown man AND she can save your life if you suddenly stop breathing or cardiac arrest.
Her guilty pleasure? Hotdogs. We can't make this stuff up. Her favorite pose: "I'm addicted handstands but my favorite pose lately is Wild Thing."
