About Me!

By Jessica Ostrowski

FRI MAY 21, 2021

Welcome! My name is Jess, creator of Yoga For You by Jess. I am a 200 hour certified yoga instructor from Uplifted Yoga (Brett Larkin). I am currently in the process of becoming certified for kids yoga through Kidding Around Yoga, as well!

While I am fairly new to the teaching scene, I have had a passion for yoga for over a decade. I had been exposed to yoga here and there throughout my childhood as I grew up dancing but I wasn't fully introduced to it until I went off to college. In my first year I took a meditation and mindfulness course and a yoga course and before I knew it I was hooked. From there I practiced on and off over the years and then the pandemic hit. At that point in my life, I was exhausted with my 9-5 job (that had no future) and knew I needed to find something more fulfilling. I found Brett Larkin's yoga teacher training and the rest is history! Since completing my training in October 2020, I have left my 9-5, started working at a dance studio (as I also teach dance), and began my yoga business.

I currently live in Buffalo, NY with my significant other. I love animals, being outside, and exploring new places!

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you in class soon :)
