Jessica Sandstrom

During her collegiate soccer career, Jessica dealt with a variety of injuries and began to practice yoga in hopes to heal during the off season. She immediately noticed a difference and began to equate the increased strength and flexibility gained in yoga with less physical pain. Yoga definitely extended her playing career, but soon she started exploring, more fully, the practice of yoga. Over time, yoga has grown from something done as an adjunct to training as a soccer player and then competitive triathlete, to a daily practice that fulfills both her athletic and spiritual needs. She completed completed boht her 200 and 500 hr YTT through North Shore Yoga.  She finds the quiet and calm, yet challenging nature of the asana practice leaves her feeling strong and centered physically, mentally and spiritually. It has allowed her an opportunity to move at her pace, go inside, connect to the breath and work within her own body.   She completed her 500 hr with North Shore Yoga.  She is passionate about travel and living well and runs a annual Winter retreat with Jenny Kaufman - info can be found at
