For Jennifer's first Mother's Day after the birth of her son Ivan in 2005, her husband bought her a spot at an Ashtanga yoga workshop. This was different than any practice she had attended before: they practiced the familiar asanas, but they were placed in a greater spiritual context that included breathing techniques, some philosophical discourse, and even Sanskrit chanting! This workshop changed her life.
These new experiences galvanized her commitment to her own practice, to help others to have that same coming-home feeling, and has provided a deep fulfillment she wouldn’t expect to experience from any other career. Jennifer is always on the lookout for more opportunities to learn—while she became certified to teach yoga in the summer of 2009, she is also a pre-natal yoga teacher, certified to guide Yoga Nidra and Yin Yoga and has completed all four levels of the Critical Alignment Therapy instructor’s course.
Jennifer has helped countless students move out of pain using the Critical Alignment method and she would like students to walk away from her classes with a smile on their faces and a new awareness in their bodies. She hopes that they feel a strong connection to the Light in their heart and have created stillness of the mind.
