    Jessica McCarthy



    As a professional dancer, yoga teacher and Reiki Master, Jessica holds a deep appreciation for the connection between one's mind, body & spirit. While dance will always serve as a therapeutic outlet and form of profound self- expression for her own life experiences, she knows that her purpose in this world reaches far beyond the stage and into the lives of others. Moved to guide and empower individuals who are inspired to embody their highest potential, Jessica McCarthy communicates a passion for health and wellness practices. From an early age, Jessica has been curious and invested in exploring and deepening the connection between her mind, body, and spirit through the medium of dance. At the age of sixteen, she continued to foster this connection through the completion of all four levels of training required to become a certified Reiki Master Practitioner. Jessica pursued her dream by moving to New York to attend NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, where she graduated with honors, receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance and a minor in Psychology. During her final year of studies at NYU, she followed the innate calling to take on her role as a teacher, training to become a 300 hour licensed Mind Body Dancer® yoga teacher under the direction of TaraMarie Perri. Jessica is based in Brooklyn where she expresses all of the facets of her ever-evolving being as a professional dancer, teacher, and healer.
