Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher
Hi, I’m Jessica Lowry.
I am a certified Iyengar yoga instructor and a classically trained actor (CAEA) who performs, creates and directs for theatre. I am also a mother of three powerful and energetic young beings who teach me magnitudes about all the above subjects- and their connections.
My creative work focuses on projects that align my yoga practice with creative writing and performance in schools, theatre organizations, arts institutions and for public presentation.
My areas of special focus include:
- Yoga for beginners
- Yoga for women/mothers
- Yoga as a foundational physical practise for actors and performers
- Exploring yoga and mindfulness with theatre and creative expression for children (pg 21)
- Empowerment and awareness through yoga for teens (pg 21)
‘Yoga allows you to rediscover a sense of wholeness in your life, where you do not feel like you are constantly trying to fit together broken pieces.’
