FloYo® was created out of a passion for being active on the water. FloYo founder, Jessie Benson, has always loved being on the water and as a collegiate rower she was able to combine her sports background with her love of water sports. A few years after leaving the rowing world Jessie discovered Stand-up Paddling while travelling in the Gili Islands and instantly fell in love. The second she stepped on a board for the first time she began to dream about ways to combine her passion for teaching group fitness classes with the blissful feeling of being on a SUP. In 2012 FloYo was born and since then the classes have been refined to create the full mind/body experience that it is today. FloYo classes are now being taught across the US and teacher training is being offered globally. Jessie has presented FloYo at the ECA World Fitness Conference and has taught at some of the top resorts in the Caribbean. Jessie is a Baptiste Power Yoga instructor and teaches a variety of fitness classes including boot-camp, core, spin, yoga, Pilates and barre in her home town of Baltimore, MD. Jessie's certifications include, RYT 200 hour yoga training with the Africa Yoga Project, YogaFit, WPA Level 1, PaddleFit Level 2, AFAA Primary Group Fitness, SPINNING, American Red Cross CPR & First Aid.
