Jen is a native New Yorker who moved to DC in 2009, after 14 years of living and practicing yoga in NYC. She began her journey into yoga in 1996 to help combat the stress of life as a NYC public school teacher, and since then has made yoga an integral part of her world. She completed a Vinyasa Yoga Teacher training in 2006, where she was trained to teach in both Prana Flow yoga and power yoga styles. Now a mother of 2, she has become well-trained on how to modify for pregnancy and post-partum yoginis. She has taught yoga to children, teens, expectant mamas and adults and loves sharing what yoga has given her. Her teachings embrace creative flow sequences and mindful movement, while retaining attention to alignment and breathing practices that you can easily bring with you off the mat. Her classes allow her students the chance to strengthen, lengthen, relax and let go of daily stresses. Her yoga teaching influences include Shiva Rea, Lauren Hanna, Jonathan Fields, Twee Merrigan, David Regelin, Jessica Lazar and Rob Hess.
