Jes Williams, has been practicing yoga since 2004. She started her journey at Baron Baptiste’s studio in Boston where she fell in love with the heat and strength of the sequence. Moving away from Boston and bouncing from coast to coast, yoga kept Jes grounded through life’s many challenges. She completed her first 200 hour RYT from Dhyana Yoga in Philadelphia in 2012 with the inspirational Diana + John Vitarelli, and continued her studies with Lisa Murray at Yoga Community in 2013-2014. This 2nd training focused on the eight-fold path of Raja Yoga. Her personal practice and teachings range from a powerful Ashtanga vinyasa to the inner practices of Raja.
In 2015, Jes studied with the amazing Jane Austin in San Francisco, who focuses on prenatal and postnatal health and wellness. Jes is certified through her school, Mama Tree, and highly recommends to any woman thinking about being a mama, pregnant, or already a mama to learn from Jane!
Jes has been teaching in Sonoma County for 4 years and is an E-RYT 200 + RPYT 90, currently working towards her 500 hour RYT with YogaWorks.
Jes has 2 children; Hudson (2 years) + Bodhi (7 months). She is a busy, tired, happy mama enjoying a big life in a small town.
