Jen Portman

Always an avid athlete, Jen found yoga twelve years ago when injuries prevented her from running and competing in triathlons. Yoga soon became a passion because of its ability to heal and strengthen, it’s power to create balance both mentally and physically; and simply for the way it feels. Jen has completed the Baptiste Power Yoga Institute levels 1 and 2 teacher trainings and is in ongoing studies with Baron Baptiste. She has attended numerous Bikram Yoga workshops with Bikram and Rajashree Choudhury and Jason Wynne. She loves being able to offer these two types of hot yoga at Synergy, and is continually seeking knowledge about other styles of yoga through workshops with Shiva Rea, Desiree Rumbaugh, David Swenson, Sri Dharma Mittra and others. “Yoga has been such a gift to me; I feel so lucky to be able to help other people find it....And, I can't believe this is my JOB now!"- Jen lives in Fair Haven with her husband and three teenage children. Besides yoga, she loves swimming, cycling, cooking, skiing and hiking, and is trying to become a surfer!
