“Trauma Sensitive Yoga” with Jessie Fortuna

Join us as Jessie Fortuna talks about Trauma-Centered Yoga as a way of finding our center.

Jessie Fortuna earned her Bachelor’s degree in Social Work in 2006. She has worked with youth and families in a variety of different case management positions from working with transient and runaway youth to advocating for children in foster care. In 2011, she embarked on a new journey and received her 200 hour yoga teacher training certificate and went on to earn her 500 hour teacher training certificate in 2014. She has been teaching vinyasa style yoga and meditation for over a decade. Yoga was a way for Jessie to stay balanced in a career that comes with secondary trauma and has a high burnout rate. Jessie started teaching trauma sensitive yoga in 2019 and is passionate about bringing her two worlds together. Jessie has completed a certification in Trauma Centered-Trauma Sensitive Yoga with the Center for Trauma and Embodiment Yoga Program, providing her with the skills to integrate a trauma informed lens into her yoga sessions. Trauma Sensitive Yoga is an informed and intentional experience for anyone seeking a positive, caring relationship with their body. Recently, Jessie completed a certification in Mindful Art and Yoga that she uses with students as well. Jessie enjoys doing anything outside, seeing live music, hanging out with her family and friends and doing advocacy work.
