Read what some of Jess’ clients have had to say about her expertise. As a small business, we appreciate every review and recommendation!
“I’ve known Jess for five years. Since I’ve known her she had expressed her passion for health and yoga. We have always discussed workouts, yoga and overall health. She’s dedicated to helping people feel better. Which is why I asked her over the past three years to take part in my Varsity basketball teams overall fitness routine. Saturday’s, early in the morning, she would drive to our teams practice and help my players stretch out their muscles. Getting teenage boys excited about stretching and yoga is hard, but they thoroughly enjoyed and asked for Jess to keep coming back. Her expertise and skills is something I would encourage all athletes or coaches to try to help themselves, or their teams learn to calm the mind and stretch the body to focus and enhance their athletic performance on the court.”
Coach James M.
“Can not say enough great things about Jess Dues. She introduced me to Yoga and completely changed my ideas of Yoga and fitness. Not only is she knowledgeable, helpful, and thorough; she is friendly, warm, and a general joy to be around.
I am a Marine Veteran that served in both Afghanistan and Iraq as well as a 3rd degree black belt in karate. I have been doing karate my whole life and had to give up about 4 years ago. While in combat I received damage to my hip. I pushed through the pain in karate but due to chronic hip pain I was forced to give up on the sport I loved. I had visited the chiropractor and Hip doctors multiple times to no avail. Their recommendation was a full hip replacement (not until I try everything first!).
After a few sessions with Jess, I felt stronger and my pain has become manageable again. I can not say enough great things about Jess’ classes and her teaching methodologies. I have a new found love for Yoga and looking forward to getting back to karate with new found flexibility and stamina. The pain will never go away with out a replacement but with her classes and skills my hip replacement is a long way off. She is simply fantastic!”

“I’ve been an avid runner and fitness enthusiast for a few decades now, never giving stretching and balance activities much thought. Because of that, my body’s balance and flexibility has suffered impacting basic activities like stooping down to pick something up and then having to get back up. Ugh!
I started attending spin classes where Jess was the instructor. Her enthusiasm along with her athleticism kept her classes varied and challenging. Jess offered wide array of routines, so her classes didn’t get predictable and they were always motivating, pushing me to extend myself past self-imposed possibilities.
My body really experienced significant change in flexibility and balance after joining Jess’s yoga classes. I avoided yoga for the exact reasons I needed it – I felt uncoordinated and it was too painful to stretch, not to mention the fact that for me to sit still for more than 30 seconds can be a challenge.
Through yoga practices with Jess, persistent leg pain virtually disappeared. Jess’s ability to describe a pose in an incredibly calming voice, allowed me to effectively put my body in the appropriate position, then hold it for longer than I ever thought I could. She provides feedback and instruction at just the right time, convincing me that I can achieve the intended goals. The reward at the end, if you chose to partake, is a temple message as you take your final rest pose. Incredible!
Because I have practiced with Jess for years, I have watched her pursue health and wellness knowledge, keeping skills current with ever evolving trends. With fitness and my overall wellness being a life-long pursuit, I highly recommend Jess to support anyone in achieving their fitness and wellness needs.”

Additional Client Reviews:
“I love doing yoga with Jess. She has such a calming and peaceful aura and I always feel right at home in this practice!
Swing Yoga has been such a great experience! I think that being able to spend some time upside down and letting my spine naturally adjust has done wonders for my mental clarity among other things. Each week is different and it’s been a great mix of strength and stretching all while keeping mindful focus. I love this class!
I have had nothing but great experiences at Pushna! I have been participating in classes for about a month and I am excited to keep coming back. I love that I can purchase a set of classes at a discounted rate and there are so many options that allow me to try out everything that sounds interesting to me. I especially love BOYO (30 mins boxing, 30 mins yoga), spin & yin (30 mins spin, 30 mins yoga), swing yoga, and slow flow yoga. I am a 43 yr old mother of two. I am naturally athletic, but it had been a good solid year since working out when I started here and it has been the perfect way to get myself back into the groove of working out! Jess is a fantastic instructor!”
