About Jessica Hamilton

 I am a yoga and boot camp instructor as well as a school teacher for grade k-8 and English as a Second Language for all levels, I also dabble in a bit of acting. I recently moved for love to Halifax, Nova Scotia from Vancouver, British Columbia. I am fully enjoying life on the East Coast but Vancouver will always be home. 

I am very passionate about yoga, healthy cooking, traveling and healthy living. I am also a big time animal lover, I have two kittens and enjoy a mostly plant based diet to minimize harm on animals as well as the planet.

I love meeting new people, trying new things and spreading love whenever I can! To reach me for teaching, acting, events, advertising, charities or any other inquiries please email me at:, or check out my website,
