Jessica P. - Instructor
Living south of town in Columbia, I’d driven past the Sumits Hot Yoga studio countless times and often wondered about it. Yoga was something I’d dabbled in, but never pursued regularly. Then one day over 3 years ago, Jocelyn called me up and said, “I’m going to try hot yoga, want to go?” The rest is history…. I was hooked from my first class.
Yoga has made more of an impact on my life than I ever thought possible. I’ve met some of my closest friends at Sumit’s and formed closer relationships with long time friends. Physically, I am virtually free of back pain, which I had struggled with since college. Mentally and emotionally, I can hardly explain the difference it has made… Kindness, compassion, understanding, love, acceptance, positivity of self and others are central to yoga, and though I’m by no means perfect at these things, I strive daily to be better. My hope is that as a yoga teacher, I can lead others to recognize the beauty within themselves and others.
Come practice with me at Sumit’s!
