Jennifer took her first yoga class in 2007 and fell in love. The flow of movement with breath allowed her to connect with her body in a way she hadn't experienced before. Over time Jennifer's practice evolved as she experienced inner alignment of heart, mind and soul. This inner alignment is what guides her as a teacher. Jennifer's personal yoga practice has sustained her during some of life's most difficult moments, reuniting the scattered parts of herself. Jennifer's grief, loss and trauma informs and inspires her teaching. Jennifer believes yoga offers a path of healing for the whole being as self-awareness increases through connection with the breath and the body is befriended with movement, physical tension is released and blockages of stuck or stagnant energy are relieved. As tools for self-regulation are incorporated the window of tolerance for life begins to widen and so does the threshold to be present for the waves of emotions and feelings that life has to offer.
Jennifer's intention is to support students to feel balanced, grounded and spiritually nourished. Offering a judgment-free zone, encouraging students to embrace, honor and connect with their life force energy through movement of the body and the breath.
When not on the mat Jennifer can be found walking the beach, snuggling with her dog Lil' Red, or spending time with her husband of 23 years, their children and extended family.
