Stretch & Snuggle with Jessi
Wake up your body for Saturday-Caturday with a stretching class surrounded by sweet snuggling kitties (and some playful ones too)! Students learn how to use active stretching to help lengthen and strengthen their bodies and as a result become more aware of their alignment and capabilities. Proper stretching helps prevent injuries, increase energy and contributes to the body being in balance. Cats will be abound to participate at their leisure, and students may stop, drop and cuddle as needed. Skill requirement: NONE. All levels welcome! BYO yoga mat. Purchase tickets at our marketplace.
Jessi is a native New Yorker; she began dancing with Jacques D'Amboise's National Dance Institute, and then trained and graduated from The School at Steps on Broadway's pre-professional program. Jessi has been leading movement classes for a decade, and leads students in a joyous frolic along each individual's growing edge of creativity and athleticism. She aims to help students harvest principles of practicing excellence, and carry this to all facets of their lives.
Jessi took a leave from dance to pursue an interest in animal welfare. She holds a B.A. in Animal Studies from SUNY Empire State College, completed internships at Best Friends Animal Society and Animal Farm Foundation, and spent two years serving the ASPCA Adoption Center's behavior team. Jessi is thrilled to be serving the Brooklyn Cat Cafe in this capacity!
