JESSIE TIERNEY, Doctor of Physical Therapy & Experienced-Registered Yoga Teacher
Jessie is as passionate about using a gentle, heartfelt approach to horsemanship as she is about the benefits of yoga. An equestrian of 20+ years, Jessie draws from a strong foundation in Saddleseat equitation as a girl and natural horsemanship she first encountered guiding 5-day pack trips into the Colorado Pikes Peak foothills. She began teaching riding lessons when she was fifteen, and has continued in a teaching role in some capacity ever since.
Jessie is a lifelong student of Shambhava Yoga, where she met her beloved teacher and sangha in 2010. She is certified as a 200-Hour Yoga Alliance Experienced & Registered Yoga Teacher. She is also a Physical Therapist with a doctorate degree from Wheeling Jesuit University. During her studies, she conducted research on the effects of Pranayama, which is yogic breathing, on chronic low back pain (spoiler alert: it works!). She is currently a practicing PT at Bellingham Physical Therapy.
Yoga is a systematic approach that guides us to reach our highest potential. Jessie is honored to be in a position that helps people discover firsthand how yoga harmonizes both horses and their riders for enhanced connection and deeper, more effective communication.
Practitioners and riders should not try these exercises without the guidance of a professional.
