Jen has been practicing yoga for over two decades and has had the opportunity to study and train with many wonderful teachers over the years. She has been perhaps most deeply influenced by her studies with Jack Kornfield and the many other Dharma teachers at Spirit Rock Meditation Center. Jen completed Spirit Rock's first Mindfulness Yoga & Meditation teacher training in 2008, an indepth 18 month program exploring yoga and Buddhism, and cherishes the tradition of deep silence and stillness she continues to experience there.
Jen has been teaching since 2004 and most recently completed her 500 hour teacher training through YogaWorks in 2012. She wholeheartedly believes in the power of yoga to heal and transform suffering and lovingly encourages her students to find compassion, grace, and ease in the present moment, and to meet whatever arises with kindness. When not practicing or teaching yoga, you'll find Jen humbly and often joyfully traversing the paths of motherhood and midlife.
For the bird of enlightenment to fly, it must have two wings; the wing of wisdom and the wing of compassion.
