Jessica Walden, Encinitas, California 

Jessica is a long time Ashtanga yoga practitioner, teacher, and mother. She's spent a lot of time in India and was granted a Teaching Authorization Certificate (Level 2) from the KPJAYI in Mysore. Jessica has also worked in organic food production for over 20 years. 4 years ago, Jessica suffered a major spinal injury and was diagnosed with a severe spinal condition. While initially this injury caused a lot of fear and pain, Jessica used it to inform how she would not only practice yoga from that day forward but how she would approach life. With an awareness of what is happening on the inside and an observance of how to access the subtle energies deep within, she has cultivated a gentle strength, grace, flexibility and relationship with her practice and with life.

Jessica’s approach to her teaching is to use humor, stories, and techniques for students that help them to find their own strength, grace, and effortlessness in their practice.


"When I heard about Yoga Gives Back, I was immediately touched and inspired to get involved. Contributing to this great program is so easy and means so much to so many families in India."
