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.

Hi! I’m Katy Kop!
 
I teach yoga, meditation, and mindfulness practices to adults and children! My foundational training is in a style of Vinyasa with strong ties to the Ashtanga tradition. I maintain a regular yoga practice encompassing a number of different styles and a regular meditation practice.
 
Upon completing my 200 hour RYT Training I immediately sought to continue my education by enrolling in additional specialized trainings to teach populations outside of yoga studios—from children and adolescents in the school system to adults in the criminal justice system. I firmly believe that yoga is for everyone. Since I believe yoga can help everyone, I aim to bring it to them anyway and anywhere I can—inside and outside the studio.
 
When I am not teaching in yoga studios you can find me teaching children in pre-schools, head-start programs, and elementary schools, or working with community-minded organizations to teach adults outside of traditional studio classes.
 
Yoga is an act of self-care that can benefit not just the individual practicing, but also the many individuals that person crosses paths outside of the four corners of their mat. Helping to foster this spread of equanimity and positivity by guiding people through their practice is my pursuit. I love the time I spend on my mat and I love to guide others through the time they spend on theirs! Let’s meditate in motion together. Let’s improve ourselves and our communities with our conscious breath and movement. Meet you on the mat!
A supported, soft, nurturing, and relaxed class with gradual transitions from one posture to the next. You'll have time to focus on your breath and find the range of motion that is best for you as you move through seated, standing and balancing poses. Blankets, bolsters, blocks, straps, and the wall are available to support you in your practice.
 
All levels welcome.
Pace: Relaxed
