Less is more. Be your own sacred healer.

My yogic journey started in 2008, when the practice gave me comfort in pregnancy. This was the first time I realized how healing it could be. I was always an active person but nowhere else did I experience the balance and calm I felt in this sacred space. This was my new beginning.

 

I jumped into regular yoga classes as soon as my body recovered from labor and I found not only my physical practice but also my people. There’s something very special about being surrounded by yogis. My new calling led me to delve deep into studio classes and in 2011 I trained with world-renowned, advanced-level teacher, Francois Raoult, here in Rochester. At Open Sky I became yoga teacher certified and a couple years later I became prenatal yoga certified through that studio as well.

 

Iyengar-centered practice was completely different from how I was learning up until then. Alignment-focused and breath-focused, I discovered a higher sense of mind-body balance and connection; and that less really is more. I truly love to teach this practice. The empowerment, open-mindedness, tranquility and fulfillment that I see in my students is satisfying to behold. In my classes we explore how yoga is therapeutic, as I was taught. Coming together we become our own sacred healers.

Jen's Classes:

 

Yoga Foundations

Mondays 6:00-7:30pm

Open Vinyasa Flow

Wednesdays 6:00pm - 7:15pm
