Although she loved living in New York, she is very happy to be back on the west coast…where the weather rarely disappoints. In her spare time, Jessie teaches Vinyasa yoga and seeks the random moments and adventures one can encounter by exploring their habitat with an open mind and open eyes.
Mindfulness and Business
Mindfulness is not a new concept. Until recently, Mindfulness was a term bound to Buddhist practices and meditation retreats, used as a step towards a great awakening. Although Hinduism was the birthplace of most contemplative practices, mindfulness has been incorporated in people’s lives across the world – mainly through a form of mediation partnered with breathing exercises.
