We launched Ventura Pop Up Yoga in the spring of April 2015. We've always said that the success that followed our launch was a divine happy accident. Ventura Pop Up Yoga has welcomed 1000's of practitioners to our Yoga in the Wild studio.
As we grew as a community of students and teachers, we knew there was opportunity to offer more. Venture Well Yoga became the platform that would enable us to dive deeper with our local students and begin to grow a global community of adventurously spirited yogis.
Our Mission is to "Create Community for the Consciously Curious"
Create- a safe place for individuals to explore the depths that a yogic lifestyle has to offer.
Community- is what we root ourself in. With the support of loving, like minded individuals the journeys we all face can be woven along the path of least resistance. Learning and growing alongside one another, we share the tools to empower each other.
Consciously- awakening ourselves to the truest possibilities. Looking beyond what we've been taught and finding what we've always known to be true.
Curiosity- an invitation to leap into adventure, that will drive you to the inner Wildness that is dying to be released from within.
Jessy Raspiller - Founder
"Wander until you find yourself... and then wander some more."
A transplant to Ventura, CA , Jessy found her community when she created Ventura Pop Up Yoga. On the mission to make yoga more accessible for those intimidated to roll out a mat, she ended up creating more than just a weekly gathering. A community was formed of like-minded individuals and as that community grows, Jessy continues to offer more opportunities to deepen their connection.
In 2019 Jessy is looking to share the wisdom, teaching and gifts she's picked up while traveling over the years. Jessy offers intimate gatherings ranging from monthly Sisterhood Circles to powerful Breathwork practices as well as light-hearted Blessingway Ceremonies for expectant mothers. She guides retreats which are rooted in nature. She believes that there is a wildness that lives within each of us that is dying to be seen, heard and experienced. It’s time to unleash it!

Chelsea Wyatt - Marketing Director + Assistant
"Make your heart the prettiest thing about you."
A Ventura native and local yoga teacher who strives to bring a sense of adventure, curiosity for life, lots of love and self-discovery to her students.
Chelsea and Jessy connected initially through the Ventura Pop Up Yoga family when Jessy hired her to be apart of the teacher team. With their shared love for yoga, deeper connections and the great outdoors, a bond was quickly formed between the two. Jessy thought that with Chelsea's degree in Communications and her adventurous spirit, she would be the perfect fit for Venture Well. Chelsea now manages marketing communications- social media, newsletters, web design and co-leads various adventure retreats alongside Jessy.
Chelsea will always call Ventura home but she often finds herself wandering around new places. An avid traveler and lover of life, Chelsea has the intention to live her life to the absolute fullest, inspire others along the way, and help them reconnect with the light within.
