Jennifer found her way onto the mat for the first time in a Power Yoga class during college. After years of dealing with a particularly aggressive case of Crohn’s disease, her body became easily disrupted by all of her usual athletic endeavors. Running was out of the question, and sometimes even the act of getting in to the pool or gym was too much. In yoga, she found both the space to push through her edges when she felt well and to sit with her breath when her body was not well. By transcending a simple physical act, yoga became part of her healing process and part of her journey as a spiritual being in a human experience. It is through this practice that Jennifer has found her liberation from active disease and the mental boundaries it brought.
Jennifer teaches an active yet introspective Vinyasa flow. Her styling is a versatile mix of fluid yet powerful vinyasa with both breathe by breathe transitions and intentionally placed holds. She challenges students physically and mentally while maintaining a sense of fun and humor. Students leave her classes feeling rejuvenated, balanced, and amazed by their own capabilities. Join her to find sweat, strength, and serenity in every aspect of the flow.
Jennifer obtained her 285 hour Yoga Teacher Certification through Blue Lotus Yoga Studio and is currently working towards 500RYT status. Through this program she has the gift of expanding her practice under the skilled guidance of her teacher, Jill Sockmanm, whose teachings both on and off the mat have helped her to tap in to what living from intention truly means. She offers additional gratitude to teachers Carrington Jackson, Heather Tiddens, and Seane Corn. Jennifer currently serves a founding member of the Triangle Yoga Society; an organization that works to bridge the gap between yoga students and studios, so that they may harness that collective energy for the greater good.
In addition to Jennifer's yoga accomplishments, she is a TRX certified instructor, as well as MADD Dog Athletics Spin instructor.
