Based in Madison WI, KRAMAS was founded by Jessica and Al Noche.

Practicing Yoga since 2000, Jessica received her 200 hr. teaching certification in 2006 at the Yandara Yoga Institute in Todo Santos, Mexico.  Later that same year Jessica traveled to Koh Phangan, Thailand and studied at Pyramid Yoga Center.  She continued her yogic path by completing her 500 hr. certification in 2015 with Erika Faith and Cloud Nine Yoga, in conjunction with the non-profit Breathe For Change In 2016, Jessica completed her Children's Yoga certification with Mira Binzen and Global Family Yoga in cooperation with Moksha Yoga Center in Chicago IL.  In addition to yoga, Jessica has deep roots in the Vipassana Meditation tradition and volunteers at the Illinois Vipassana Meditation Center in Pecatonica IL.  Jessica abundantly loves art, literature, language, cultural studies and travel.

Al took his first step on his yoga journey in 2008 by attending a class led by Angela Gargano, Founder of Bliss Flow Yoga & Wellness.  From there, he was immediately hooked.  After several years of cultivating a daily practice, Al enrolled in the 200 hr. teacher training led by Meg Galarza at Yoga One Studio in Cedarburg WI, in partnership with Bliss Flow Yoga.  Initially, Al's only motivation was to deepen his practice and learn more about the history and philosophy of yoga.  However, upon completion of the training he felt compelled to share what he learned with others.  Al completed his certification in the fall of 2015 and teaches classes in and around the Madison area.  Al’s interests include music, film, calligraphy, sports statistics and biking.

Together, Jessica and Al created Kramas Yoga in order to share their knowledge and experience with you.  Their goal is to help you find your personal kramas in order to cultivate your true voice in the practice of yoga.
