Jenn started doing yoga after the birth of her second child. She started to practice as a way to lose baby weight and to get “in shape”. She soon began to see more than just the physical benefits and was hooked on the balancing effects on the mind.

Jenn took her first 200 hour training soon after starting her practice. As most addictions go, she couldn’t get enough, and Jenn jumped in with two feet. It wasn’t long before she felt the call to use her teaching background and her newfound passion to help others.

Her foundational flow style training was a launching pad to a full-time yoga teaching career, and to her deeper studies with yoga teachers such as Maria Garre, Shiva Rea and Andre Lappa, to name a few. Due in part to Jenn’s extensive and varied training, her classes are never the same twice. Every class offers the student a unique opportunity to evolve. See class descriptions for a further explanation of what to expect from your experience.
