Hi! I'm Jenna!
As a child, I remember two things making me happiest – being active, and being outdoors. Whether I was at a swim meet, climbing a tree, or swinging on the hammock, I always had to be moving. Something about being outside and witnessing the interconnected-ness of nature brought me such peace. But it wasn’t until I came to my yoga mat that I truly felt a part of that connection myself.
Yoga was first introduced to me as a compliment to athletic training, and I resisted it. Years later, after experiencing deep emotional pain and trauma, the practice slipped ever-so quietly into my regular routine. Soon I was practicing yoga daily, just because it had become a habit, but for years I was unaware of the ways in which it was silently healing my spirit. Over time, I recognized the practice for what it was, and was ignited by a desire to share it with others. I found that yoga provided me with a sense of community, and fostered my compassion. Much like nature, I found the practice to be a powerful connective force.
My classes focus on self-empowerment and self-awareness through purposeful breath and mindful movement. I hope to inspire others to use their yoga practice to connect with themselves, and be conscious of the world around them. I also offer Reiki healing and Doula services. When I’m not on my mat, I can still be found enjoying time outside, probably in a hammock… some habits are just lifelong.
