Jessica Knapp

Joy Yoga / Yoga Collective

Jessica first found yoga while in high school in Minnesota. Training as an actor and dancer, yoga remained in the periphery of her life for several years. But, it wasn't until a friend took her to a local community center that she discovered Vinyasa yoga – she was hooked! The connection between breath and body that Vinyasa yoga provides has altogether transformed her life and opened her eyes to a more joyful way of living - while cultivating compassion and awareness and building inner and outer strength. Jessica earned her Registered Yoga Teacher, R.Y.T., certification with the Yoga Alliance in 2008 through Joy Yoga Center and continues to study and be influenced by the diverse Houston yoga scene.

Jessica strives for light-heartedness and authenticity in her teaching - hoping to guide her students toward a richer, healthier, happier life. Bringing yoga to the community through teaching in studios, corporate offices, health clubs, and volunteering is an honor and a privilege each and every time.

While not teaching or practicing yoga Jessica enjoys working in theatre. She is thankful to her many teachers that continue to inspire her on and off the mat and is honored to be a Lululemon Ambassador.
