About Jen: Physical Therapist, Yoga Therapist, & Educator
I was a physical therapist before I found yoga. At first I saw absolutely everything through the eyes of the physical body – muscles, bones, and movement. Over time, I became more interested in the energetic and mental benefits of yoga. They were powerful, but the benefits didn’t seem to last all that long after class. With more training and more teaching, I began to explore the teachings of yoga and share them in my classes. It was transformational.
Whether you join me for a class, a workshop, or an individual session, we’ll work to optimize the way the systems of your body work together. If you’re interested in developing your physical, mental, and spiritual health, I’d love to share the practice of yoga with you. We’ll travel the path together, focusing on strength, balance, and flexibility that goes far beyond the physical.
As a guide, I share the practices and point you toward your innate wisdom and intuition so that you live a life that is true to you. When we live aligned with what we value, we live with meaning and purpose. Yoga helps us to filter the noise.
My intention is to enrich lives with the practices of yoga.
More strength, less pain.
More mobility, better balance.
Less stress, better sleep.
My hope is that through practice, we uncover our true selves.
We use our gifts and energy for good, and the world becomes a better place person by person, relationship by relationship.
My Credentials, Education, & Training
As teachers, we’re lifelong learners. We share what we’ve learned, experienced, and created.
We send it into the world and hope that it makes a difference.
I’m very grateful for the people who have shared so generously with me.
