Jessica has been practicing yoga since 2016. She discovered yoga on a health journey and began practicing Buti yoga. From there, she found how yoga can heal everything from your body to your mind, your spirit, and beyond. She obtained her first teaching certificate in Buti yoga in December of 2016. She then received her 200 hour certificate in 2017 with HereNowYoga in Birmingham, Alabama—an Alignment-based training, and her 500 hour certificate in December 2018 with Etowah Valley Yoga in Cartersville, Georgia. She is currently completing training to become a yoga therapist.
Her passion for teaching is in the therapeutic and healing world of yoga. She strives to make her classes truly accessible to anyone that walks into the studio. She works with clients suffering from Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, and other forms of chronic pain, and offers classes and props to assist students that struggle with getting up-and-down from the ground. Her desire is to help each individual find peace with themselves and their bodies.
Becky “Callie” Kunkel
Accessible yoga instructor, 200RYT, with additional training in Chair Yoga and Senior Adult yoga
Becky has been practicing yoga for six years, but wanted more from the practice. She wanted to learn more about yoga, from the roots up, and to teach and share with others the energy and calming beauty that yoga brings into one's life. So on January 1, 2018, Becky decided to dive into yoga full force. She attended Jessica's Buti yoga class, and decided to become an instructor. Despite being blind, she attended Teacher Training at HereNowYoga in Birmingham and became a 200 hour Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) in October of 2018. She is also trained in Chair Yoga and Senior Adult yoga. Becky sees with a vision that yoga and love can make the world a better place.
