Jessica is a former collegiate athlete and high school coach, and is now a Physical Education teacher in San Jose. While playing softball at UC Davis, Jessica helped lead her team to earn a conference title as an All-Tournament Team athlete, and eventually moved to San Diego to further her education at San Diego State University. As a way of giving back to her community, Jessica coaches softball at the Pioneer High School. After earning her Master’s degree, Jessica moved back to Northern California, where she was born and raised, to teach 4th and 5th grade PE.

Camp Director & Middle School Yoga Coach
Amy Castello has created the yoga curriculum for Athena Camps for the past five years, is the Middle School Yoga Coach and is taking on the role of Camp Director as well in 2017. Amy is a certified YogaKids teacher and welcomes any opportunity to share yoga with a young, energetic, playful population. She believes in educating the whole child by incorporating breathing exercises, non-competitive games, math, ecology, music, language, anatomy, art and relaxation into her yoga classes. Because children are busy with school, homework, and extracurricular activities, she is happy to allow children to turn their attention inward and ‘just be’. She has discovered that the best part of yoga for many children is their ability to close their eyes, become completely still, breathe, and find the peace and happiness that is alive inside everyone of us.
