A qualified yoga instructor who aims to promote healthy living.

CV: A qualified yoga teacher and the author of the e-book #letsstartyoga, Jessica will be familiar to many thanks to her hugely popular Instagram account (@jessicaolie has more than 75,000 followers), which she uses to post photographs of various poses and her fans’ progress.

Where it began: “After retiring from competitive swimming I started my yoga journey in February 2014, teaching myself as a way to cope with the stress of my studies and living away from home. I went on to become a qualified yoga teacher and started sharing my progress on my Instagram account.”

Dreaming big: “My ultimate goal is to be able to continue to make a difference in people’s lives through yoga, health and fitness. I’m also working towards bringing out more e-books in the near future.”
