Jessi Rae began her journey into yoga in her early teens practicing with her mother. She didn’t know why at the time but it was something that just clicked, like a light switch had just been turned on. She fell in love with the exploration and the connection of the mind and body through movement and breath. In 2008 she traveled to Costa Rica to train and receive her 200- Hour Interdisciplinary Yoga teacher training at Nosara Yoga Institute. She immediately fell in love with the act of teaching and sharing yoga with others. She first began teaching at a physical therapy center in Arlington Heights, working with clients to build, strengthen, and enhance the flexibility in the their bodies. Teaching at a medical type facility challenged her as an instructor and gave her a better understanding of the healing elements of yoga. She has since continued to teach locally and internationally at various studios.
