A world where the community steps in to help each other heal.
When I first heard about Jessica Dewar Yoga, I loved the concept. Donation-based, open for all regardless of how much money you have, really spoke to me. As a social worker, I see first hand the difference between those who have money, and those without. I knew this place must be different to other yoga studios, where barriers for me had always been monthly fees and times that didn’t fit in with my long work hours. The moment I entered the studio I felt welcomed and cared about. Jessica took time to get to know me and helped me feel instantly comfortable. I love the diversity of people who come to this studio, all varying abilities. I never feel embarrassed for where I’m at, and all of the teachers are so skilled at offering a variety of options depending on what your body is ready for each day. My time at Jessica Dewar Yoga has really helped me embrace my own “Yoga Journey”. I’m there for my mind and my body. I can almost touch my toes one day, and can’t get anywhere near the next, but that’s okay. I’m there to find my breath, take time out from the anxiety, stress, and pressure of a busy life. I always leave feeling proud of myself, more grounded and calm.

I had been previously practicing yoga for a couple of years and was losing my enthusiasm for the practice. Nothing just seemed to work. It felt like every studio I went to was just about hardcore exercise and how you look in each posture.After my first class at Jessica Dewar Yoga I left feeling inspired again. Jessica got me back on track and really showed me how to use my body and mind together; which is what yoga is all about.I now have a confidence in my practice that I can take away when I am traveling overseas or can’t make a class. My body is so much stronger now and not to mention my mind. I feel like I have really grown in the last year. There are now postures that I would never have believed my body could do and with the help of Jessica and the team it’s been possible.The studio offers so many classes to fit anyone at any time of there life. After my 6am Ashtanga I leave feeling inspired and alive every morning.I can’t recommend it enough. It’s a great, friendly space with such a beautiful community.I’m truly grateful to all of the team for making Jessica Dewar Yoga such a beautiful space.
