Jessica Jacobs, President and the creator of The Yoga Junction, has experienced many transitions within her yoga journey and after practicing for over 20 years has come to realize that there is no “right way” to do yoga and we ALL deserve the chance to explore community through yoga. Throughout her life there has always been an unconscious undercurrent of sharing, connecting and teaching. Following a trip to Bali, where she obtained her International Yoga Certification, she realized how prominent the desire for connection was in her life. Through The Yoga Junction, she enthusiastically shares her passion with you.
Connecting to the energy of love and authenticity at their core is a passion for Jessica, and through her passion she shares this experience with you through The Yoga Junction.
Tricia McDonald has practiced yoga for over 23 years and has always been drawn to yoga communities that focused on strength and empowerment. This is why becoming a part of The Yoga Junction is so special to her. To be able to offer everyone a place to feel empowered, strong and vulnerable is why she wanted to bring this community to life with Jessica. After the first retreat she attended hosted by The Yoga Junction, she knew that there were others that could benefit from this amazing community in a studio space.

“The practices of Yoga are gentle daily reminders to me to live in the potential and beauty of my life.
Through the teachings I continue to grow and evolve; I am humbled and overjoyed that I have been given the opportunity to be part of the community at Yoga Junction and offer these same practices that opened my heart to others who are on the journey to release the old stories of judgement and walk the path of self acceptance, authenticity and real meaningful connection.”
