Jessica Bellofatto has been a dedicated student of Hatha Yoga for the past twenty years. Her interest in Yoga was piqued at the age of 18, while she was majoring in Dance at New York University. She completed the intensive year-long Teacher Training Program at the Jivamukti Yoga Center with beloved teachers Sharon Gannon and David Life in 1996 and has been teaching ever since. First and foremost a student, Jessica has studied extensively with many notable and amazing teachers, and has been most deeply influenced by her Jivamukti roots, along with the intensity of the Ashtanga Yoga system as taught by Sri K. Patabhi Jois, and the beauty and clarity of the Iyengar system.

A former dancer, Jessica teaches from a deep understanding of movement as art, movement as play, movement as therapy, and especially, movement as a spiritual practice. She is also interested in the stillness within and between the movement; the spaciousness of silence.

In addition to her love of yoga, Jessica is a mother of two amazing children, a doula (labor support person), and an avid athlete- surfing, paddleboarding, and training for triathlons…

She is a pioneer of SUP YOGA (yoga on the paddleboard) and teaches retreats around the world.
