Jessica Ruff

Yoga Instructor

Jessica teaches an empowering, dynamic practice that emphasizes mindful alignment and strength with a soulful touch. She completed her first 200-hr teacher training in 2013 and has since had the privilege of training primarily with Jason Crandell and Stephanie Snyder. Forever a student first and a teacher second, Jessica is passionate about sharing all eight limbs of yoga.

Outside of yoga, Jessica has a BA in Psychology and an MBA. She spent over ten years in corporate marketing before pivoting in 2018 to fully invest herself in yoga. When not learning or teaching yoga, she loves to travel and spend time with her beloved corgis. She’s also a Lululemon Ambassador for the Williamsburg store.

How would you describe your teaching style?

Inclusive, alignment-based vinyasa with a soulful touch.

What type of student would benefit from your classes?

Anyone who seeks answers to the eternal questions, who am I and why am I here?

What does yoga mean to you?

Yoga is simply coming home. It is the path that leads me back to who I truly am.

What is your favorite asana and why?

Trikonasana (Triangle pose) is my favorite pose because it encourages a beautiful expansion of the self. In a world that tells us to be small, Trikonasana lets us expand, radiate outward, and take up space.
