As a 40th birthday present, I received a membership to a local yoga studio. I was lucky enough to have Jessica Raimondi as my instructor. She taught the very first beginners class that I attended. From the onset, I found her to be a superb teacher. Her classes manage to blend both the physical and mental/spiritual aspects of yoga in a way that allows the student to have a complete experience . Her classes are a great physical workout, but also a safe place to calm the mind and escape from the stress of the day. She is a very kind, relatable teacher who simply put, knows her stuff. I highly recommend Jessica to anyone interested in yoga, from the beginner to someone with a more established practice. You won't be sorry.
