Jenny Finkel

Jenny began doing yoga at age 12 after reading an article about it in Seventeen magazine. As a 7th-grader, Jenny was asthmatic, with scoliosis and a fear of sports and gym class. Practicing yoga was the first time she felt skilled at any sort of physical endeavor. Maintaining a diligent home practice throughout her teenage years and into adulthood truly shaped the direction of her life, and she decided to pursue her teaching certificate to help share the transformative power of yoga with others. She completed her 200-hour training and followed that with a 50-hour specialized training in Therapeutic Yoga for Cancer at Duke Integrative Medicine. She recently relocated to Chicago from New Orleans. Jenny’s classes are meant to challenge students with a physically vigorous practice, while maintaining a focus on safety and alignment. Please bring your sense of humor when you come to class.
