Hello and welcome! I'm Jennifer. My yoga journey started around the time I was 24 years old and working at my first post-college job at an advertising agency in Seattle, WA. I was only one year into my career and I was already feeling overwhelmed and a little burned out. A coworker-friend invited me to come to a Vinyasa class with her. I can't recall my exact thoughts, but I strongly remember how I felt after the class; vibrant, energized, and at peace in my mind! Over a few years of practice, yoga and meditation became vehicles for so many personal transformations. Steadily, while on my mat, many of my limiting beliefs and self-sabotaging behaviors were brought into the light so that I could work through them. My muscles got stronger; so did my confidence. Yoga taught me how to care for myself with compassion.
In 2016 I completed alchemy of yoga 200-hour Teacher Training in beautiful Costa Rica. Silvia's inspiring teachings, intuitive care, and thorough guidance were so empowering and impactful. Since then I've completed numerous trauma-informed yoga teacher training intensives that have opened my awareness to accessible and inclusive approaches to yoga, trauma, neuroscience, social justice, and addiction recovery. Believing even more deeply in the healing powers of yoga, I chose to shift my career in advertising and marketing to freelance work so I could dive into teaching yoga wholeheartedly. It's been a personally challenging and beautiful journey! My favorite part is holding space for other people – wherever they are at in life – to feel empowered to heal themselves.
Now contributing to alchemy of yoga's marketing efforts, I couldn't be happier and more grateful to serve the very program that shifted my life in the best way possible!
