ABOUT

Jessica Dean, ERYT 500, LMT, BA Music, MPH, Ayurvedic Wellness Counselor

My passion is to guide others with the tools and knowledge to create a balanced flourishing life!

I have spent much of my adult life immersing myself in ways of healing and growth, and my path in life is to spread those teachings.  My practice and teaching integrates all of what I have studied, learned, and experienced.  I am passionate about the human body and being able to maintain balance in the body.     

  • Ayurvedic Wellness Counselor - in the middle of the Practitioner program.

  • Bodyworker since 2001.

  • Yoga teacher, therapist, and teacher trainer (200hr and 500hr) since 2007

  • Kirtan leader

  • Trauma Sensitive Yoga

  • Children's Yoga Teacher and Teacher trainer

  • Somatic movement therapies (I do not refer to them as yoga)

  • I am not licensed in the state of WA (thus do no practice massage here) but my background does include 16 years of bodywork, teaching for a massage school, somatic bodywork techniques, and studying Thai Bodywork in Thailand, which adds an additional understanding of the body to the yoga therapy and Ayurvedic consults.

I have so much gratitude for all my amazing teachers and guides and simply hope to pass on what I have learned to others. I am also so grateful to have had the honor of being invited to teach yoga all over the world; from Bali to Australia to Nepal and more! 

 

The medicine of Ayurveda and Yoga are complex beautiful sciences that can transform our lives on all levels.

 

I have been practicing yoga with Jessica Dean for the past 8 years of my nearly 20 year yoga practice.  Jessica opened my eyes to the real power of yoga, yoga as more than merely asana (poses), but to the authentic practice of yoga as medicine for the body AND mind.  The evolution of my personal practice since working with Jessica has improved my quality of life in more ways than I could ever have imagined.  Jessica's great depth and breadth of knowledge of yoga is compassionately and enthusiastically shared with all her students and I have found a true teacher for life that I will be forever grateful for.

Jessica was my massage therapist for approximately 15 years.  I suffer from chronic pain and Jessica's compassion, patience, and expertise provided me years of relief.  Jessica cares about the person - both body and soul.  Her loving self comes across in her touch.  I highly recommend anyone who needs therapeutic massage and healing.

Although I had taken yoga classes before I had never experienced the true benefits of yoga.  With Jessica's help I learned how to truly meditate, be aware of my body's alignment and position, and push myself further than I thought possible.  I gained strength, flexibility, and an understanding of how to listen to my body.  Yoga went from being just a workout to being a time where I exerted and also renewed at the same time.  yoga with Jessica literally changed my life!
