Hi, my name is Jessica Gray. I am a certified yoga teacher. I actually wear many hats. However, first and foremost I am a mother and wife. My husband and I have been together my entire adult life. He balances me in ways that he doesn’t know. My son and daughter give me the motivation and direction that I need in life. We have 5 cats, 2 that I inherited from my sweet mama. We also have a Great Dane, named Addy. I have been a hairstylist for over a decade. I absolutely love and value each of my clients.
I began doing yoga for the physical benefits soon after my mother passed away. It didn’t take very long for me to realize that yoga was much more than fitness. My yoga mat became a safe place to land and the people that I practiced with became my family. I recently received my certification as a Yoga Teacher. It was one of the best experiences of my life. While I absolutely love to practice yoga, when I step on center mat I truly feel at home. I feel as if I have heard my calling.
Texarkana Yoga is my second home. This is why that when I learned that it was for sale I knew in my soul that the universe wanted me to step into the role of owner. My husband Rocky and I purchased Texarkana Yoga with the hopes to continue to supply the same safe space to others that held me in my time of darkness. I want each individual to feel enveloped in love and acceptance upon entering the door.
The yoga that I teach is hot power. The temperature in the room allows the joints and muscles to stretch a little more. The body is able to release toxins through the sweat. My class incorporates holds, power drills, all while gaining strength and flexibility. There is just something empowering about completing a hot power class.
There is something for everyone at Texarkana Yoga. We hope you will come share your practice with us. Namaste
