Jennifer found her practice when she suffered a serious back injury that required emergency surgery. During her recovery, she felt blessed and energized by the healing benefits of meditation and yoga that were critical to her physical and mental improvement. She has been happily teaching since 2007. In 2013, she completed her 500-hour Advanced Teacher Training certification at the Yoga Center of Columbia.
In addition to yoga, Jennifer holds Balanced Bodies certifications in Pilates Mat and Reformer, a Moms in Motion (MIM) certification in Prenatal Fitness and a White Crow Yoga certification in Aqua Yoga. Jennifer is passionate about offering modified yoga and Pilates to those who may have lost core power or flexibility due to pregnancy or other special conditions. Holding a postgraduate degree in modern studies, she also enjoys incorporating the modern relevance of yogic texts and principles into her classes.
Jennifer began practicing meditation in 2003 as a way of managing her own postpartum pain and anxiety. Jennifer offers a weekly meditation class at Haven where she guides beginners and established meditators in the art of growing their practice and sitting with a group. She also stresses the central role of mediation in any asana practice in her yoga classes. She believes that the practice of meditation honors the most authentic part of ourselves, which is our deepest consciousness.
Jennifer is devoted to creating a safe and experiential environment for her clients that honors awareness of the breath during moments of movement and stillness. She encourages an appreciation for the importance of alignment through core strength, balance and flexibility — both on the mat and in life. A lifelong student, Jennifer relishes time with her teachers and enjoys her journey as she refines and evolves her practice and teaching.
