When the Yoga Travel Tree team went to Wanderlust in Squaw Valley, we wanted to give someone the gift of travel, experience, learning and culture. We set up a raffle and chose one lucky yogi to win an all inclusive yoga retreat of their choice. We had hundreds of yogis enter, but in the days after Wanderlust, we chose a single winner: Jess Ysura!
Jess bases her yoga practice out of Idaho, and has chosen to travel to Costa Rica for her yoga adventure!
We asked Jess for some words. A little personal background, how she got into yoga and why she continues to practice. Here's what she had to say!
"My name is Jess Ysursa, and I live in Eagle, Idaho. I'm a non-practicing attorney, stay-at-home mom, and a newly-registered RYT 200. I got into yoga on a whim, but stayed into it after I discovered how grounding it could be even in the midst of life's inevitable chaos.
Through multiple cross-country moves, law school, marriage, and two kids, I've always had yoga to come back to and remind me of who I really am."
If you want to follow her on her yoga journey, as well as see photos of her upcoming Costa Rica yoga adventure, follow her on Instagram @jessysursa!
Congratulations Jess, have an amazing time in Costa Rica, and of course, #findyouryoga!
