The Adventures of Super Stretch
The Adventures of Super Stretch, founded and created by Jes, is a fun innovative health and wellness EDUtainment program for kids. The goal of The Adventures of Super Stretch is to help children ‘Make NAMASTE a Part of Their Day’ and take a step forward to be the best they can be, inside and out, through breath and movement. The Adventures of Super Stretch program is an in-depth program of interactive tools – books, flash cards and apps – designed to introduce kids to yoga and the power of fitness. If you are a parent, caregiver or school teacher that wants to learn the benefits for the practice and access yoga’s insights there is also a Teacher Training Manual full of tips, techniques and lesson plans on yoga for children. With obesity, juvenile diabetes, ADD/ADHD and stress on the rise. Schools, parents and health programs seek solutions for engaging children and encouraging physical activity to keep them healthy and happy. Super Stretch offers ways to help kids find balance in our overtaxing culture. And how to self regulate, find resiliency and develop healthy habits at a young age that will benefit them for the rest of their lives.
Jes is co-founder and troop leader of GORILLA YOGIS . A movement, a migration to yoga beyond studio walls. We make connections. Gorilla Yogis gather to practice urban jungle yoga in unexpected, offbeat places. In parks, on street corners, in museums, the Guthrie theater, art galleries, at cafes, in restaurants, in music venues like the rock mecca First Avenue, on rooftop decks, in lofts, abandoned spaces, baseball fields. It’s yoga out of captivity. Each month we host donation based yoga events where we raise money for organizations that are doing hard work to make the Minneapolis urban jungle an awesome place to live. This project has raised over 40k for non-profits in three years.
Jessica Rosenberg has been practicing yoga and wellness since the early 1990s and teaching for more than 13 years. She studies yogic texts and sequencing philosophies from many yoga and fitness disciplines. The result is a wonderfully blended teaching style and a unique challenging class for children and adults that balances body, mind, and heart to help students enlighten up.
Jessica’s greatest pleasure lies in sharing, mentoring and spreading the wonders of yoga movement, breathing and philosophy. In 2001, she created The Adventures of Super Stretch™, an interactive fitness program, book series and games for the entire family developed to give children a physical outlet to express and empower themselves in a healthy and happy way; revealing their beauty from the inside out.
Jessica is a co-creator of Gorilla Yogis™ — a movement that takes yoga beyond studio walls and into unexpected, offbeat urban settings as a way to raise money and awareness for various community organizations.

I am a seeker. Yoga has offered me amazing opportunities and life experiences, wonderful people to meet and incredible mentors to study with. Everyone that I come in contact with on the journey inspires and teaches me – the tot that smiles because they did down dog for the first time without their parents help, the teen who was able to stay out of trouble at school by taking 3 deep breaths, the over-worked 40 year old who made space in their busy day to do a sun salutation, the 95 year old who takes chair yoga… It is an honor and privilege to share the gifts of yoga with people every day.
I like to teach classes that are mindfulness practice wrapped-up in a challenging vinyasa flow. So, when you walk off the mat you feel refreshed, renewed and rebalanced in body, mind and spirit. It’s like having an oxygen cocktail! You flip the switch and tune into your essence on the mat. New to yoga? Dive in, try it all and enjoy the amazing experiences that every style of yoga has to offer. There is no right or wrong type, find what resonates with you. Yoga is an art and science of the body/mind connection. It challenges the body, focuses the mind, the philosophical principles encourage growth and it has a wonderful meditative aspect. It is an incredible holistic approach to living.
