Jessica has also completed certification in Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga and teaches chair yoga at the studio to those that are unable to participate in a mat yoga class.

Jessica’s classes incorporate all of the usual aspects of yoga with the addition of chanting in Sanskrit with the harmonium to honor her musical background and the roots of this practice, as well as careful attention to safety and alignment. Since graduating from her 200 hour program, Jessica has continued to deepen her studies with various workshops with people such as Sadie Nardini, Leslie Kaminoff, Manorama, Marc St. Pierre, Karen Kenney and others. In November of 2013 Jessica completed her training in Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga with Sadie Nardini.
Jessica named the studio Forever Yoga because of her deep belief that we can always benefit from this practice, no matter where we are in life or where we are headed. She has a sincere interest in making yoga and its benefits accessible to people in all walks and stages of life.
All you need is the courage to walk through the door.

Rebecca Simmons began her yoga practice in 1998 during her last year of high school when, upon discovering ashtanga yoga in the area, began trading child care and fiddle lessons for weekly classes. She kept her yoga practice active throughout the years as she studied other disciplines including dance, Pilates, Tai Chi, Crossfit, acrobatics, circus arts, and physical theater. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree in modern dance in 2005 from Bard College in New York State and a Certificate of Completion in ensemble physical theater in 2007 from Dell’Arte in California. Finally, in 2009, after living and working in Chicago for two years, her love for yoga brought her to enroll in a teacher training at a downtown studio called Yoga Now. It was there that she received her Yoga Teacher’s Certificate and began her first teaching job. Prior to, during, and after her teacher training, Rebecca studied intensively in varying styles of yoga including: vinyasa flow, hatha, Forrest, Ashtanga, restorative, Iyengar, Anusara, Jivamukti, Dharma Mittra, Kundalini, acro yoga, and kirtan and chanting. She found the chanting to be a great and natural component to yoga, being a singer and a musician herself, sort of like an uninhibited vocal warm up! She has found teaching yoga to be a great way to connect to people; she really focuses on creating and maintaining a positive and accessible atmosphere in and around her classes. She believes yoga is for everyone and that everyone has access to it at any given moment. Yoga in essence is about discovery and revelation of one’s own true nature. In order for this to occur, one needs to feel free and at ease to be his or herself. That is the point of each of Rebecca’s classes: to give each student the space to do so.
