The Team

IMG_2439Jess Gruber | Founder + Director

Jess has been teaching children’s yoga since 2011. After traveling the world teaching both yoga and English as a Second Language, she settled in Washington, DC in 2014 to teach pre-school and kindergarten. Jess founded Little Moon Yoga as a means to synchronize her passions of yoga and education. Her mission is to guide children to cultivate tools of body awareness and mindfulness that they can take with them as they grow and navigate the world. She has trained with Mindful Schools and is currently pursuing her Master of Science in Yoga Therapy.

“To me, life is about discovery and exploration: discovering and exploring the new, or simply altering your perspective so that you can see old things in a totally new way. This is what my yoga classes are about: discovering the magic in everything.

Jen Moore | Curriculum Development

Jen’s background is in Education and Psychology and she has completed yoga trainings in Sivananda Yoga, Imagination Yoga, and Kali Natha Yoga. Her life’s work is sharing her love of this practice of yoga with others as it is a precious gift in her own life. When she became a mother, she knew that she wanted to share the gift of yoga with her son as early as possible.

“I love watching kids’ level of confidence and happiness grow while we play in and learn from the ancient Yogic tradition. Namaste!”
