Jesa Simpkins (RYT-200hrs) began practicing yoga diligently in 1998. In 2009 she completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training at Aloha Yoga Kula in Hawaii. Shortly there after she began training under Andrea Torres at Samadhi Hawaii and is currently one of her aerialists. Her love and practice of aerial arts, dance, Pilates, and yoga (Ashtanga, Iyengar, Anusara), lead her to meet Ana Prada who began training and sharing her movements known as Aerial Yoga. After many hours of practice and collaboration with Andrea and Ana, Vayu Aerial Yoga was created, combining their love of aerial arts and hatha yoga. Along with Vayu Aerial Yoga, Jesa also teaches prenatal yoga, aerial classes and dances with Samadhi Hawaii and the Iona Contemporary Dance Theater.
