As well as being a Co-Director and Founder of Cloud9 Wellness Hub, Jessica is an Aerial, Pilates and Wellness Master Trainer and is also an Aerial and Skating Performer.
Her career brings about her three passions, a love for learning, sharing her passions through teaching and expressing her talents through performing.
Her training background is vast, but it is all united with one common theme, that of wellness.
Her training started at the tender age of eight years old where she trained, competed and performed across the country with her coaches, Margarita Sweeney-Baird & Wendi Ross.
Jessica also spent four years training, teaching and performing with Aircraft Circus - where she graduated and then went on to teach on their Full Time Foundation Course in Circus Arts and perform with them in a number of shows. She also travelled, performed and taught with them on their circus exchange programmes across Europe.
She is a CircusFit Flyers Master Trainer where she trained and qualified with Master Trainer & CircusFit Director Hester Montgomery Campbell. Trainings and qualifications include: CircusFit, Aerial Yoga, Aerial Pilates and TrapezeFit.
She trained with HFE and is a fully Qualified Level 3 Pilates Instructor.
Her love of teaching blossomed when she completed her Post Graduate Certificate in Education at the Central School of Speech & Drama, going on to teach at a North London Secondary School.
Jessica graduated as a Museum of Happiness Facilitator, run by Vicky Johnson and Shamash Alidina where she uses what she learnt and experienced to enhance her practice and teachings.
Jessica has always been spiritual, believing in the power of the mind and a universal force that connects us all. Since her childhood her family spent time with members of the Hare Krishna Movement, where she learnt about meditation from a young age. And more recently the Brahma Kumaris movement, where she has expanded her practice of meditation and mindfulness.
Inspired by her late father Jonathan Ashby she continues to find ways to expand the mind, body and spirit for the highest and greatest good.
