About
Wild Heart Yoga

There's this Sanskrit word, śraddhā, which roughly translates to 'where you place your heart.' It's time to find freedom and place your heart in the wild.

Wild Heart Yoga was founded and developed by me, Kelly Jeska. The idea came from a time of great change in my life when I was tired of being afraid. Afraid to be myself, afraid to pursue my own dreams, afraid to start something new. I worked for so long to help others achieve what they set out to do (don't get me wrong, I learned a lot), but my own goals were often set aside and I was placed inside this container where people wanted me to be. I craved freedom. After a lot of hard work and introspection, I made the decision to set my heart free and start my own business. It came about so naturally that it's almost like it was waiting for me this whole time. Thus, Wild Heart Yoga was born!

It is my goal to hold space for everyone who wishes to find freedom and nurture or invigorate their wild heart. The yoga classes I lead focus on breath, balance, strength, flexibility, as well as thought-provoking themes that not only support the mind and spirit, but the body as well. My intention is to guide you through breathwork, meditation, and bio-mechanically sound movement so that you may find freedom and learn more about yourself by holding loving space for every facet of your being. 

"The mark of a wild heart is living out the paradox of love in our lives. It's the ability to be tough and tender, excited and scared, brave and afraid — all in the same moment. It's showing up in our vulnerability and our courage, being both fierce and kind."

 

-Brené Brown, from Braving the Wilderness

Jennifer Yancer

Guest Teacher

A lifelong lover of movement, Jennifer's (she/her/hers) classes are grounded in a firm understanding of biomechanics and how it relates to yoga, while leaving room for curiosity and exploration. Her vinyasa students can expect accessible yet challenging flows, while her yin students should expect a non-traditional yet lovely stretchy experience. Jennifer is a registered 200-hour yoga teacher, and is working towards completing her 500-hour and Prenatal yoga teacher designations. She makes it a priority to create an open, supportive, and welcoming class space for all.

  • Do I have to register for class online?
    No. You are more than welcome to come to class without signing up online. You can pay with cash or a card. If you are a new student, I will ask for your information (including your email) so I can create an account for you. This helps me keep track of my business finances, and helps you keep track of your purchases and class attendance.
  • I want to read more about the class descriptions but it's asking me to sign in. Do I have to create an account?
    No. Click on "Book a Class," scroll down until you see a list of offerings and then click the "Read More" link under the class title you wish to learn more about. You'll be able to see the description and class dates and times. If you wish to book, then you will be guided to create an account.
  • I'm new, what class plan should I start with?
    I recommend starting with the New Student Special. 3 classes for $12. This way you can sample almost all of my classes before deciding whether I'm the right teacher for you.
  • I'm a beginner. Where do I start?
    Mindful Movement on Monday nights or Chair Yoga on Tuesday mornings are great classes to start with as a beginner! We move slowly and mindfully - so you won't miss anything.
  • I'm not flexible. Can I join?
    Yes. I have plenty of props and modifications to accommodate for any body type; be that flexible, stiff, tall, short, small, medium, large, and everything in between. Every body can do yoga. And every body is welcome.
  • What do I bring to class?
    Bring a water bottle and your own mat if you have one. There are mats and other props available for use if you need them! You may want to consider purchasing your own mat for personal hygiene and regularity of practice.
  • What should I wear?
    Comfortable clothing that you can move around in. Exercise pants that feel secure but allow for movement, shirts that allow for full coverage but don't constrict your range of motion. Socks are not traditionally worn in yoga, but you can if they make you feel more comfortable. There are socks like these with little grippies on the bottom that are nice!
  • What about eating or drinking before class?
    Hydration is key. It is a good idea to come to class hydrated and with your own water bottle. Eating large meals before class is not recommended, you should give yourself a few hours after eating before attending yoga.
  • What's the phone policy?
    You can bring your phone in but please turn it off or put it on SILENT upon entering. You are more than welcome to ask for pictures or take pictures after class.
