Jesse Bennett began practicing yoga and Pilates in 1998, and both disciplines transformed how she felt in her body, and in her mind. Falling in love with the two and seeing how they truly complement each other inspired her to study, teach, and share yoga and Pilates.
Over the past 8 years Jesse has taught in yoga and Pilates studios in Louisville, Minneapolis, Lake Tahoe, and Santa Monica and now she is thrilled to finally put down roots here at Ulu Love.
After graduating from The University of Southern California in 2001, Jesse completed her first Pilates mat certification with Power Pilates. She went on to recertify with Integrated Balance’s Comprehensive Training. Jesse’s yoga training is with Shiva Rea. Studying under Shiva Rea really inspired her Vinyasa style of teaching. Jesse completed Shiva Rea’s Fluid Power Vinyasa Teacher Training and Shiva Rea’s Pre/ Post Natal Teacher Training at Kirpalu, Shakti Vinyasa and Exhale Venice. Jesse is also a Master Teacher at Blooma Minneapolis where she also completed Bloomas Prenatal Teacher Training and Bloomas Barre training. Jesse has also studied with Doug Swenson, Bea Raydo, and Rolf Gates.
Jesse loves being with her family! Hanging out with her husband and two little ones Maddie and Samuel and dog Charlie is what makes Jesse most happy!
