Jennifer began her yoga experience at a Bikram Yoga Studio in her early twenties while still in college. At the time, she was inspired to continue practicing yoga, mainly for the physical benefits. Many years later, Jennifer underwent yoga teacher training with Rebecca Sathre of URU Yoga & Beyond and began the journey of connecting to my true self. A shift occurred in her practice and she was able to give myself permission to be authentic, love the way she is, and connect with others more openly, consciously, and deeply. Jennifer practices and incorporates mindfulness, meditation, pranayama, and chanting to her classes. She is an advocate for all beings and enjoys spending as much time outdoors. She loves her yoga community and is grateful each day that she gets to connect with other beings through yoga.
