CST is beneficial for general well-being and relaxation, or for a specific issue such as headaches, healing from injury or surgery, vertigo, anxiety, depression and more. It can useful as a general "tune-up" when you feel things are "off" or for grappling with a deeply rooted struggle that could use the collaboration of mind, body, energy and spirit.

Jess has studied locally with a gifted intuitive and CST practitioner and with the Upledger Institute. She pulls together her experience in Intuitive Energy Reading, CST, Reiki, yoga, mindfulness, herbalism and more to personalize and optimize each session.

Call or email to schedule:

Sessions are at Peaceful Heart Yoga's indoor studio. Masks are required and a high quality HEPA air filter is running near us the whole time. We will reschedule if either party has any symptoms of illness or is a "close contact."


Kids, Parents, Soon-to-be Parents and Educators

Children benefit from yoga and mindfulness as a way to experience the richness of their own inner world without the distractions of modern day life. Through postures, kids learn balance, regulation, confidence, body awareness and their mental, emotional and physical health improves. Parents and educators are given the sacred task of "holding space" for children to grow. They blossom when we listen carefully, allow their feelings to unfold and stay present with them through all of it.

A Yoga-Inspired Preschool

Full preschool curriculum, all with the grounding, mindful, holistic, fun and movement-filled approach of yoga. We focus on social and emotional skills with a brave and honest look at ourselves and creative problem solving at the core. Play-based, child-centered, small class size and organic foods.

Classes and workshops in yoga, meditation and ayurveda

Peaceful Heart's classes and workshops invite us to send down our roots and find our most authentic expression. Yoga classes are on the gentle side and offer variations in each pose to allow for the most beneficial practice. The main influence is that of Kripalu Yoga: inviting authenticity, compassion, and the discovery of your yoga practice in all aspects of life - on the mat, at work and school, in the trenches of parenthood and beyond.

  • Weekly Yoga classes

  • Private Yoga lessons

  • Workshops in Yoga, Meditation , Ayurveda and Mindfulness

What's in a name? I chose these words from our New Culture as it is blossoming. A Peaceful Heart is a heart that is listened to and accepted just as it is; with presence, stillness, respect and love. Our own hearts and the hearts of our children. It is heard in its present state, whether it looks pretty or not - the turmoil, the rumblings, the contradictions, the tantrums. When we choose to feel and be with all that we are - use all the information our hearts are giving us from a place of honesty - that's when we can find a deep peace in every moment. And from this place of stillness and understanding is where we grow and soar.


Peaceful Heart is an LLC, yet we operate as a not-for profit entity. Any income beyond operating expenses goes toward our programming, into our scholarship fund or is donated to a local charity doing work related to ours. Currently we are donating monthly to the YWCA to support their mission of "eliminating racism and empowering women".


When we can tune into the details and the sensations of our children while they navigate the world and allow ourselves to really see and hear WHO that child is, in this moment, we may notice a shift in how we perceive all of life, and maybe find it's all a little easier to enjoy at the same time.

Much of our western culture can be a bit overwhelming to those of us who are "sensitive". But did you know that within the "ailment", lies a "cure"?

As an incredibly sensitive human myself, I've been studying this concept in adults and children and from many different lenses, and I've come to love and honor the deep awareness and ACCESS we have to our inner world, thanks to our sensitivity. More...

Somewhere in the midst of my morning routine, I will do a simple stretch or two. In my jammies, without even unrolling my yoga mat. And that might be it. Or I might do more. The beauty of this concept is that it creates a space holder in my day that reminds me that I do that thing called yoga. More...
