Jessica Kos Birney
Growing up with two older brothers north of Chicago, fitness, sports and dirt have always been a strong part of Jessica's life. Luckily, she found the pool and great success in competitive swimming that changed the course of her life and began her journey from student to instructor.
Yoga entered her life in college at Illinois State University, where Jessica was teaching a variety of group exercise classes. After years of treating her tall frame improperly, she found yoga provided great relief from her aches and pains. In addition to pain relief, she realized that she also loved teaching people to listen to their personal needs and find moments of grace and beauty in all things.
Since college, yoga and fitness have been a constant in her world; Jessica received her AFAA Group Exercise Certification and then pursued her Registered Yoga Teacher Certification with CorePower Yoga in October 2005. Having played a management role in multiple fitness establishments, Jessica is most excited about finding her home at CorePower, teaching C1, C2, C3 and Sculpt classes. After years of full-time studio and program management for CPY, Jess is now the Continuing Education Manager for Colorado & Texas, supporting instructor development and quality. Additionally, she is CorePower Yoga’s National Lead for the Yoga Sculpt program.
