Jen is a mother to two girls and a Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance. Jen first found yoga to ease the stress of her corporate career. After seeing the benefits yoga had on both her mind and body, Jen deepened her studies and received her 200 hour yoga teaching certification in 2014. At the end of her training, Jen discovered she and her husband were pregnant with their first daughter. Prenatal yoga replaced her vinyasa flow practice and helped Jen connect to her changing body and the life that she was growing. Jen believes practicing prenatal yoga during her pregnancy resulted in the beautiful (and relatively easy!) births of both her daughters.
Jen is committed to sharing her yoga practice with expecting and new moms and their families. Jen has completed over 100 additional hours of training specializing in prenatal, postnatal, and baby & me yoga and is also trained as a Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist. Jen’s classes will leave you feeling strong, confident, prepared and capable during your pregnancy, labor and transition to motherhood.
