Meet Our Practitioners
Jessie Barnick Forston
An elementary school teacher with a Master of Education from the University of Minnesota, a Certified Children’s Yoga Teacher, and mother of two, I have a passion for teaching, children and movement. Certified as a Developmental Movement Consultant in March of 2014, I enjoy working with children of all abilities to reach their full potential through movement.
With a strong background in education, I take pleasure in assisting families weave learning into floor time activities to create fun and educational experiences while building foundational brain connections. In addition to Developmental Movement, I have worked with the University of Minnesota’s Institute of Child Development on Mindfulness curriculum to help children and families become less reactive and more mindful, and also share yoga with students in the Twin Cities area through Learning Tree Yoga. I work with children and families in my studio in Northeast Minneapolis, and throughout the Twin Cities area. I also travel throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin and work with clients through Skype. I look forward to helping your child reach their full potential.
