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 mission of The Adventures of Super Stretch is to help all children make ‘Breathe. Stretch. Play.’ a part of every day and take a step forward to be the best they can be, inside and out, through mindful moments, breath work, and movement practices. The Adventures of Super Stretch program is an in-depth program of interactive tools – books, activity flash cards, and apps – designed to introduce kids to yoga, meditation, 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. We believe that ‘Balance is a superpower!’ Obesity, juvenile diabetes, ADD/ADHD, stress, and anxiety are 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 skillful solutions to help kids find balance in our overtaxing culture. It teaches children how to self-regulate, find resiliency, and develop healthy habits at a young age that will benefit their bodies, minds, and hearts for the rest of their lives so they can thrive.
Jes is co-founder, troop leader, and designer of GORILLA YOGIS. A movement, a migration of meditation and yoga beyond studio walls. We make connections and community. Gorilla Yogis gather to practice in the 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 yogi’s out of captivity. Each month we host donation based yoga and mindfulness 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 60k+ for non-profits.

I am a seeker. An urban hippie with a #livetolearn vibe. 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.
