Jen is an E-RYT 500 registered yoga teacher who has always had a connection to the exploration of movement and the expression of her heart and is thankful to her Father and her late Mother for this upbringing.

 

She has been studying movement and yoga for the majority of her life and has been teaching yoga since 2001. She has taught a variety of aspects in the yoga realm including public classes, business classes, yoga for special populations, kids/teen yoga, paddleboard yoga, private sessions, retreats, workshops, teacher clinics and teacher trainings.She has also had her own teacher training school, Lotus School of Yoga. Her teaching style offers clear precise alignment that is playful as well as soulful.  

 

While teaching she incorporates her many years of studying dance and various forms of movement, where she had the opportunity to learn about energy, anatomy, and the fullness of expression. This is intertwined with her in-depth study of Anusara Yoga (previously Anusara teacher), yoga therapeutics and non-dual philosophy. She has studied with Noah Maze, Desiree Rumbaugh, John Friend, Judith Lasater, Simon Park, Donna Farhi, Douglas Brooks, Doug Keller, Sianna Sherman, and many other amazing teachers. 

 

She has been studying Craniosacral Therapy under the Upledger Institute since 2012. And studying with Cate Stillman since 2016, habit science and dinacharya (Ayurvedic daily routines) and how to support people into healthy living (Yoga Health Coaching).

 

Besides all the joy and in-depth awareness that is brought from practicing, studying, and teaching she also appreciates many other avenues that add to the richness of life. One, in particular, is being with her husband and daughter especially on the trails where she finds a great amount of peace and love.

Come ready to play and find a deeper connection to your heart.
