Anne and Jess, both living on the North Fork but having never met, each spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to bring more joy and balance to the people around them. It wasn’t until the universe worked it’s magic, bringing these two spirited souls together, that they realized they had the perfect collaboration of expertise and passion to make this dream a reality.
In 2018 they founded NoFo Retreat – a series of retreats in beautiful North Fork settings, where they bring people together to find a deeper sense of balance, joy, and connection.
Certified Yoga Instructor
Barefoot and pregnant (No…literally barefoot and pregnant - it was a prenatal yoga class!), a once anxiety-plagued Jess stepped onto a yoga mat, took in a breath of that moment and never looked back again. Inspired by the extraordinary impact her practice has had on all aspects of her life, she decided to become a teacher to pass on the sacred gift of yoga to anyone willing to receive! In 2013, Jess took her passion to learn and completed her 200 hr teacher training certification with Betsy Kase at Yoga Haven in Scarsdale, NY. A year full of transformation, growth, and passion has only inspired her further to continue the journey of deepening her practice and guiding both children and adults through their journeys in yoga. Since she was so greatly inspired by her journey through motherhood, Jess received her certification in Pranakriya Prenatal Yoga at the
Kripalu Center in June 2014.
Now Jess, mother of three budding yogi boys, continues to teach adults and children and is determined to help others use yoga to provide a better quality of life in an ever increasingly stressful world.
Come share your day with Jess; you will breathe, stretch, fall, pick yourself up again, learn to smile, laugh, and live in the present moment - finding your inner child and heart center.
Certified Life Coach
Anne began down this path in 2011 when someone important to her experienced an unthinkable tragedy. Witnessing that changed her. It sent her on a personal journey of self-discovery and a quest to make sense of the world. She read lots of books on self-help, spirituality, and the afterlife. She attended seminars and spoke with healers, mediums, and therapists. She reached a point where she could make more sense of the tragedy, on a higher level. She was also at a place where she could begin to look at her own life in a different light, and work on her own personal challenges. She's since felt drawn to help others to live more joyful and fulfilled lives.
Anne's coaching focuses on the profound effect thoughts and feelings have on our life experience. She helps her clients stop living unhappy and unfulfilled lives by reconnecting them to their inner wisdom and heal emotional wounds that hold them back, to live a life of joy,
purpose, abundance and connection.
