Jess Gruber

Yoga Therapist & Instructor

"I specialize in helping people have better periods, in feeling well during pregnancy and preparing for birth, and to healing during postpartum."

 

Jess Gruber specializes in reproductive wellness, with a Masters of Science in Yoga, deep extended education, and a lifelong passion for learning and teaching.

 

Jess has been teaching reproductive yoga for the past 6 years, and believes her work is to assist people to tap into their body as their true teacher and guide.

 

"I believe in supporting people in living a well life, however that works for them."

She is from Towson and currently lives with her family in Takoma Park. She has a son, Hunter, two dogs, Hanu and Dwight, and 2 step daughters.

 

"I felt inspired to come into this work through my own struggles with reproductive health. After taking birth control for many years, deciding to come off birth control resulted in many health problems.

 

I was able to find ways, through yoga and the teachings of other women, to live a life that supports the 4 seasons or phases of the menstrual cycle, and leaning into living a cyclical life with more rest and rejuvenation."
