I’ve had a passion for physical fitness all of my life that started playing sports in school. Since then, I’ve consistently taken a variety of group fitness classes including aerobics, spin, kickboxing, yoga and Pilates. I believe each of us is on our own journey in life and we can do anything we set our minds to. With that, I’d like to share part of my journey with you:
As I entered my senior year in college, school and a crazy schedule had taken a toll on my health. I knew I needed to take better care of myself physically and mentally, and it needed to be fun and challenging enough to hold my interest. That’s when I joined a gym. Within months, I was bored, wasn’t getting the results I was looking for and was tied to a lengthy contract. Frustrated, I began reading about the benefits of Pilates and decided to give it a try. Pilates won me over from my very first mat class nearly 15 years ago; it quiets my mind and slims and defines my body. Pilates touches on so many areas of physical and mental health: strength, flexibility, balance, concentration, and endurance. I was so impressed with the results, I got my Power Pilates certification in November 2015. In March 2018, I became the owner of Two Rivers Yoga and the rest, as they say, is history!
Some of my favorite quotes include:
“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment”- Buddha
“Sometimes you’ve got to be able to listen to yourself and be okay with no one else understanding”- unknown
“Just because my path is different, doesn’t mean I’m lost”- unknown

Jesse moved to San Marcos in 2013 to establish a 1-acre homestead and quickly fell in love with yoga. In February of 2017, Jesse traveled to northern India to study yoga at the base of the Himalayas. He was blessed to earn his 200-hr. teacher training under two yogis that he considers to be awakened masters. The experience was life changing and showed him how far yoga can take us into deeper loving, joy and presence.
Jesse believes foundation, alignment is most important. Yoga asks us to pay attention to what’s going on inside our body and mind, so we can make proper adjustments for a solid foundation. Like a tree sapling, only once our roots are established can we begin growing stronger and expanding towards the light.
His two passions in this life are gardening and yoga.

Yoga offers us the opportunity to slow down, open our hearts, bodies and minds, and connect with the preciousness of all life.
Lindsey has studied the healing arts, specializing in yoga and physical rehabilitation, for over 14 years. She started practicing yoga in 2000 when medical doctors didn’t have natural healing methods for chronic back pain due to scoliosis and injuries from car accidents.
