In 1998, she attended her first yoga class. She left feeling a deep connection to the earth, peace in her body, and quietness she had never experienced. Like many others, Jade struggled with anxiety, and worry, and yoga became a great tool for calming her mind. Showing up on the mat became her way home and way back into her body. The mat became a place to heal the heart, quiet the mind, and return to balance. Jade’s first instructor taught her that a mat is like a cocoon of protection. In time, Jade learned how to carry that protection off the mat and share it with others.

Jade walks an evolutionary path toward personal growth. This has led to living a life with more honesty and authenticity. Being a seeker of knowledge, Jade is always looking for ways to learn. In 2006 while living in mid-coast Maine and teaching fitness classes, she decided to attend massage school. After graduation, she began her career in bodywork and her education continued as she practiced her craft and honed her skills of observation and intuition. In 2013 her journey took her back to the classroom where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Community Health and again in 2020 where she became a certified yoga and meditation teacher.

After twenty-three years of personal yoga practice, sixteen years practicing massage, and four decades of life. Jade has a unique understanding that the human body is more complex than we realize. The emotional, physical, and spiritual impacts on the body can create ripples long after an experience passes.

Her passion is teaching yoga to those seeking a deeper understanding of what it means to love “the self”. While accepting that healing & growth is a continuum best accessed through our inner wisdom. Jade’s unique style is a blend of restorative yoga, gentle yoga, self-massage, breathwork, and meditation.
