Your healing journey starts with the mind-body connection

Ikigai Yoga & 

Massage Therapy


Meet your instructor

I found my Ikigai, my purpose, after studying environmental science at Stellenbosch. After 3 years, a number of traumas, and an epilepsy diagnosis, I made a conscious decision to change my life path for something that supported my mental wellbeing. The fact that the mind could be so overwhelmed and stressed that it affects the physical body in the form of a seizure was a huge reality check. My body shut down and said 'enough'. Through yoga and meditation, I learnt to regulate my emotions and stress and stay in the present. I want to share this knowledge with you.


Yoga changed my life. I have been practising for 10 years now: in 2019, I went on a journey to Bali to do my Yoga Teacher Training. That training changed my life and I found my Ikigai in teaching yoga, mindfulness and meditation. I am a qualified massage therapist, meditation, breathwork and yoga teacher, and baby massage instructor through internationally-recognised institutions throughout the world.


My passion is helping people to heal themselves by strengthening the mind-body connection, as well as sharing the power of nurturing touch and massage with parents and their babies.

I'm Jess.

Say goodbye to yoga practices that don't work for your body, mind or time, and hello to a sustainable practice that boosts your body's innate healing ability and increases your presence, any time, anywhere.

A lovely space that is really calming and inviting. Jess is great at making inexperienced - and inflexible - people like myself feel comfortable when learning about and trying different and new poses. I highly recommend Ikigai for anyone looking to get into yoga as well as for those more seasoned yogi's looking for a great class.


Yoga with Jess continues to be a transformative journey toward a place of self-love and deep gratitude. I experience each session with Jess a generous gift of light and love, which brings me immense joy.


Simply put Jess an amazing Yogi and Yoga Instructor, who shares her passion and knowledge freely and with enthusiasm. I’ve learnt so much along my journey,
thank you Jess!
