MEET OUR 'OHANA
'Ohana means family & family is what we are.
Hello, 'Ohana! I'm Jessi Endrizzi, and I'm thrilled to be teaching among such a talented group of yogis and in such a beautiful studio. My passion for yoga began as a young mom when I faced mental health challenges, exhaustion, and anxiety. I began to find myself impatient at home and unhappy with myself. Going to yoga each week healed me and allowed me to come back to life. The qualities I learned and developed on my mat- using my breath, stilling my thoughts, and striving to do my best- translated into a peaceful, happy changes in my every day life. Those changes translated into a desire to share what I had learned, and to lift others through the practice of yoga.
I completed my 200 hr. yoga teacher training through the Yoga Center of Minneapolis, completed Strong Spirit Mindfulness in Movement Chair Yoga Training , YOGA SHRED/Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga trained, and I received barre certification from the International Ballet Barre Fitness Association. I love sharing these healthy practices with others.
Outside the studio, I enjoy hiking, quilting, dancing, karate, eating, cooking, and spending time with my family. My husband, Mark, and I have four awesome kids and a yorkie-poo (who is actually my favorite child!)
Thank you for sharing this journey with me! Namaste!

Hello! My path to a life involving yoga came when I was trying to find my way after the loss of my mother. My best friend said, "Come with me to a yoga class." I don’t say no to her often, if ever, so I went, and found what I needed to heal. To me, yoga is mind, body, and soul working together to create a peace and harmony in the body that you are not likely to find elsewhere. My instant love for this practice, and the joy I am blessed with after an hour of class led me to earn my certification, and I have been able to share my love ever since. Although I believe there is a need for all the types of yoga, my favorite classes include restorative and slower flow classes to create the peaceful state of mind that is sometimes hard to hold onto in daily life. I truly believe that in one form or another, yoga can be for everyone.
I have a wonderful husband of 26 years and two amazing (adult) children. I love animals and have two dogs and a cat that fill my heart. Biking, gardening, reading, running, wine, coffee (and of course yoga!)... just having fun and spending time with family and friends are the things that make me happy. I live my life in as happy a place as possible and there is always a smile and a hug for everyone!
I am so happy to be a part of such an amazing yoga family and I hope to see you all! Namaste

After fifteen years in office and hotel management, I decided to veer my life in a new direction. I wanted a healthier existence. A life that made me, above all things, happy. Leaving the hospitality world behind, my husband, Josh, and I opened our first fitness center. Over the next few years we expanded, opening three more locations in Iowa and Wisconsin. My passion for fitness grew and soon included clean eating and Yoga. When my youngest child headed off to college, I devoted my time to becoming a 200 hour certified yoga instructor and began teaching classes. This was the beginning of my personal transformation. I continued to study meditation, chakras, crystals and energy healing. The more courses I took, the more I realized how to use these tools to bring real change into my life. Now, as a ThetaHealing® Instructor and Practitioner, I facilitate group healing sessions and work with clients privately to empower them to create the change they are looking for. On the mat, I bring my experience and training to help students release stress, align with their true self and focus on what they want out of life.
