Jessica Little

Jessica Little MS, RD, CSCS
Jessica has been involved in wellness for the past 15 years as a personal trainer, group fitness instructor and registered dietitian. From a young age, she has always needed to move! Whether it was playing outside with neighborhood friends as a kid, participating in multiple sports throughout high school and college, or training others through college and beyond. For years, Jessica resisted yoga given it was not the high intensity ‘workout’ she was accustomed to. However, after taking her first Vinyasa class in Cambridge, MA in 2004 she was immediately hooked and realized it was exactly what her body and mind needed and she has practiced regularly ever since!

 

Jessica holds certification as a Level 1 yoga teacher through YogaFit, is Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength and Conditioning Association, and is a registered dietitian with a master’s degree in human nutrition. She is pursuing her 200 hr RYT certification, looks forward to completing Rasamaya Barre training and is excited to bring SURFEST to Magnolia!

 

Jessica enjoys spending time with her husband, 2 year old son and 3 month old daughter. She looks to yoga and movement to help find calm and balance and she looks forward to helping others do the same by joining the amazing Magnolia community as co-owner.



Jessica Little instructs the following:
  • HIIT Barre
  • Get in and get it done with HIIT barre!

    This 45 minute athletic workout is all about power and cardiovascular endurance. You will work multiple rounds of exercises to work your whole body, followed by a focused toning segment (abs, legs or glutes) and then a cool down and stretch.  

    HIIT barre combines your favorite Magnolia Barre exercises with High Intensity Interval Training to incorporate bursts of cardiovascular exercises and brief rest periods to increase your heart rate, torch calories and shape long, lean muscles.
