Jessamin’s movement journey began in the mid-2000s with a fulfilling international career as a professional dancer and performer in theatre, film and opera. During this time she started integrating yoga into her daily dance training, as a method of grounding, energising and realigning the body while on tour.

Jessamin went on to study intensively with leading Vinyasa Flow teachers Claire Missingham, Shiva Rea and Abby Hoffmann, culminating in her becoming a Yoga Alliance certified yoga teacher with over 400 hours of training behind her. She now teaches yoga to professional dancers, surfers and yoga students around the world.

Jessamin is passionate about sharing the joy and freedom of movement through yoga – with classes that challenge, strengthen and restore.

Classes are tailored to individual needs, encouraging students to honour their bodies and minds in a conscious embodiment of yoga practice.

Jessamin’s creative and mindfully choreographed vinyasa flow sequencing weaves together deep, alignment-focussed asana (postures) and pranayama (breathing techniques) with hands-on-assists, heavenly scents and soulful sounds, leaving students grounded and uplifted in equal measure.

One-to-One Classes

One-to-one yoga classes are a great way to develop – or begin – your practice. 
If you are new to yoga you might utilise these sessions as an opportunity to familiarise yourself with the postures, find safe alignment and learn what props might assist you getting into, going deeper and getting out of the poses.

These sessions are also great for those working with injuries or specific health concerns – the classes are tailored to meet your needs in a way that is sometimes harder to find in a group / public setting,

For those with an established practice, privates’ offer the space to dive deeper, be challenged, receive personalised feedback and adjustments, with classes tailored to aid you personal development.

“I had been thinking about trying yoga for a while, but felt intimidated turning up to a group class, and being the ‘newbie’.”

Does that sound like you?

In a friendly and non-judgemental environment you can work with Jessamin to build a strong foundation and understanding of how yoga can work for your unique body, how one can strengthen and support it, and ultimately – if that is your goal – feel empowered to walk into a group class with a new-found confidence.

“We had a fabulous Yoga session with Jessamin on a terrace overlooking the ocean. This was a beautiful setting for a family yoga session and Jessamin created a perfect environment for the lesson in advance. She accommodated all of our mixed abilities superbly managing to make each one of us feel our body and mind had benefited greatly. Her dance background alongside her expert Yoga knowledge was a great combination with a series of flowing Yoga positions. At the end the quiet relaxation was helped along by her positioning of our shoulders and head via pressure points with lovely scented balm. Jessamin’s command of Yoga is clear to see from her own practice. A really beautiful experience and the effect was so good we had as many sessions as we could fit in!”
