Jessica Gokhberg

Jessica (MA, RYT-200) began practicing yoga in 2010 with the intention of finding a regular exercise regimen to counterbalance her sedentary academic lifestyle. She quickly discovered the combination of yoga and pranayama to be effective in managing her stress and chronic migraine pain. Yoga for her is a time to play, to challenge the physical and emotional limits she puts on herself, and to ground herself within the space of her mat. After years of daily personal practice, Jessica decided to complete her 200-hour teacher training at Blue Point Yoga Center with Sara Doyle in the summer of 2016 as a way to deepen her knowledge of physical alignment, pranayama methods, and meditation, as well as how to extend yogic philosophy to her life beyond her mat. Her goal is to make yoga enjoyable and safe for others who would benefit from the practice, including fellow graduate students and those suffering from migraine symptoms. She is also excited to offer yoga classes for young adults and professionals in the Triangle Jewish community as a way to explore the intersections between yoga and Jewish identity, social justice, and community organization. Jessica is currently working on her Ph.D. in Literature at Duke University.

Jessica McGovern

Jessica McGovern, RYT 200, started her path to Yoga upon reading Erich Schiffmann’s' Moving into Stillness'. Taken as an avenue to connect and, perhaps more accurately, re-connect with the body, mind, and spirit, Yoga has proven to be a transformative experience. After several years of home practice, extensive research into the teachings of Iyengar, David Coulter, Desikachar, Yin and Restorative schools of Yoga, she completed her 200-hour training with Yogaworks under the tutelage of Sarah Bell at Triangle Yoga Shala. Jes believes that Yoga does not need to be constrained by one particular method or style but, rather, by synthesizing (and continuing to incorporate new knowledge) one can maximize the benefits of many different avenues to achieve internal harmony. She feels it is critical to embody the foundational principles of yoga: Sukha (ease and flexibility), Sthira (strength) and, above all, Ahimsa (do no harm). Yoga should uplift, inspire, ground, support, and relax the body, mind, and heart, with the intent that its positive effects be felt off the mat, present in everyday life.

Amy Nichols

Amy Nichols first found yoga when she was 14 years old and has continued to follow its path since. In a search to deepen her practice and understanding of the philosophy of yoga, she completed a 200 hr RYT Teacher Training with Mara Healy at the Balanced Unity Yoga School. Her practice is heavily influenced by Andre Lappa's Universal Yoga, Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, and cultivating a sense of mindfulness around all we do. Her teaching is centered on the belief that the physical practice can be adapted for every body and that the real yoga happens when we step off the mat.
