“It is my desire to assist my students in a compassionate, skillful and playful way so that each may develop tools to discover the many benefits this practice provides after leaving their mat. I feel that breath awareness is an integral part of yoga practice and from that a natural sense of movement and grace evolves, guiding each student to their own unique experience. My Yoga practice has brought the greatest sense of joy and introspection to my life and it is my pleasure and privilege to share it.” ~With Gratitude~ Tana
A dancer in her former life; Jen continues to love the foundations and principles at the core of classical ballet. After a dance ending injury, Jen turned to other forms of fitness and got her AFFA group fitness certification and taught aerobics for ten years. While pursuing her Master’s degree, she put teaching aside and focused on her education and career. Recently, through meeting Kelly and trying Pilates, Jen has learned to listen to her body and heal from a major surgery, all the while finding a new fitness love.
Jen hopes that, by sharing ballet techniques as they relate to posture and form in the barre setting, others will experience some of the many joys that have been a huge part of her life and her love for the ballet.
Look for her filling in this summer!
