This week we welcome new member Grace & Flow to the Kelowna Chamber! Owner Jessica Nobrega, a former scientist from the environmental industry, is an energetic and positive individual who is passionate about community. A 500hr Registered Yoga Instructor who also provides certified Yoga Teacher Training, Jessica helps to create a connection with nature in one of the most beautiful places on earth, the Okanagan Valley:
“I am most interested in a holistic approach to life, family and business, and understand the pressures women put on themselves in todays fast-paced world.”
What are you working on with Grace & Flow right now?
Our Summer Yoga Series at Predator Ridge runs all summer long on the hand-crafted outdoor yoga platforms, set in the temperate coniferous forests and lavender fields with unparalleled views of the stunning Okanagan landscape. Every Wednesday enjoy Sunset Stretch & Sip with wine from local wineries, and every Sunday morning is Yoga + Mimosas amongst the lavender overlooking Kal lake. I never grow tired of the views up there!
Are your events open to everyone?
Absolutely! We often have groups of co-workers, sisters, friends or mothers and daughters at our classes and they are open to all levels of yoga students, including beginners. The events are more about the connection with nature and each other, being able to breathe and move is a bonus. There is time to watch the setting sun on Wednesday nights as we enjoy chilled sips from a local winery, people often bring charcuterie or nibbles as they take in the view.
What’s on the horizon for Grace & Flow?
2 outdoor yoga retreats, one at Predator Ridge in August and the other at White Lake Resort in September, and we also recently started a line of beautiful, performance-based athletic apparel. You can also find me working with other leaders in the community helping to create change on how work-life balance is defined. I run a women’s conference each year with inspiring local women whom I admire so much… I find outrageous joy in combining my love of event planning and bringing together expert speakers with yoga and wellness.
Jessica also happens to be our very own Communications Manager with the Kelowna Chamber as she brings her love for supporting community and local businesses to the team. Welcome Grace & Flow!
