We are Jess and BJ, business partners, training buddies, soul mates and co-creators of YogiTriathlete (YT). We are health and wellness coaches for mind and body with a global community reach. We are yogis, meditators, plant-based Ironman triathletes, speakers and brand builders thriving on connecting and serving others to reach their highest potential.
We believe that a vibrant life is the right of all beings and understand that the ways of our modern world do not always allow for this vision to be seen as viable as we see it to be. The demands of our ever growing society to perform, produce and do more with less has left our country in a state of stress, chronic pain and swelling waistlines. Most of our fellow Americans are living in a state of suffering and dis-ease, many of which suffer alone in silence leading to feelings of isolation and helplessness. We want people to know that they are never alone and feeling well is something everyone can achieve.

She worked primarily with athletes and chronic pain clients on body maintenance, restoring balance and injury rehabilitation. As Head Yogi at YogiTriathlete she dedicates her life’s work to helping others realize how to unearth their gifts, believe in themselves and live in flow with their unique purpose.

YogiTriathlete’s Ride the High Vibe Tour (RTHVT) core mission is to be in service to as many people, families and communities as possible as we make our way to the west coast to live out our dreams in a tiny home and settle into a life of simplistic contentment. There is so much sickness in the US – mentally, spiritually and physically. We believe that we help raise the vibration of our country by educating communities in the healing effects of mindfulness, yoga, high vibe nutrition, exercise, self-care and loving kindness. We plan to utilize every tool in our toolbox to help others reach higher levels of health by sharing freely our experience and knowledge. We will integrate into communities and assess where we can be of service. It will differ from community to community depending on need. In some communities there will be more organized talks, workshops, yoga classes and group movement sessions while in others more one on one connecting. Our experience is that when we allow the mission to fall together organically the impact is always far greater than we could have ever imagined.
The RTHVT officially begins in Lake Placid, New York in June. Here we will spend approximately six weeks immersing ourselves into the community and embracing opportunities to volunteer and serve. Make sure to follow us on all our social media outlets (links below) to stay up to date on what is happening and to watch the tour unfold.
From Lake Placid, our plan is to head to Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen, New York. Here we will volunteer on the farm and offer free yoga. Our stay at Farm Sanctuary will take us into mid to late August when the big piece of the RTHVT will commence.
We will leave New York and head south to the states with the highest rates of obesity and largest risk factors for the America’s top killers, specifically heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes. The exact itinerary and location visits will be determined by need and responsiveness of the communities we reach out to before and during the journey. We already have a general route based on connections we’ve made thus far but just as the inspiration for this adventure came to us from a source beyond our intellect so shall the ultimate schedule of this amazing adventure. We are awake and ready for our highest self to fulfill our purpose.
We are funding this primarily through our savings and donations that we received. Additional support will significantly increase our capability to increase exposure of the tour and leave a mark on the lives of many Americans. Here is how you can help the RTHVT reach its greatest potential:
