Jessica Janowsky, M.Ed, is an E-RYT 200, YACEP, KAY teacher, and licensee. Jessica is a certified teacher in the state of NY. She is the creator of the Y.O.G.A. program (Your Objectives Get Accomplished), the first full-time yoga, meditation, and mindfulness program in the United States where every student attends weekly lessons for social emotional learning, stress reduction, and enhancing self-regulation and pro social skills for the duration of the school year. Jessica teaches Y.O.G.A. at Parley Coburn Intermediate School (Grades 3-6) for the Elmira City School District in NY.
Jessica is also an experienced fitness professional. She has been a certified group fitness instructor through AFAA (Aerobics and Fitness Association of America) since 2008. She recently established Yoga m.a.g.i.c. (mindfulness, acceptance, gratitude, integrity, and compassion) LLC, a consulting business in which Jessica works with educators to infuse Common Core curriculum, and yogic fundamentals in a secular way in an effort to have calmer, more connected classrooms and schools.
Jessica resides in Elmira, NY with her husband and sons. She owns a fitness facility there, Ultimate Fit Chick. She enjoys spending time with her family, being out in nature (especially in her bare feet) and reading, researching, writing, listening to music, and all movement- especially yoga. Every day is a gift. Jessica believes each of us has unique talents and gifts that we are meant to share with others to make the world a more kind and compassionate place.
