Bio:

Based in New York City, Jennifer holds a 200 E-RYT Certification with the Yoga Alliance as a Certified Baptiste Teacher.

Jennifer has been practicing yoga for almost 15 years, and completed her training with Baron Baptiste whom she continues to practice with. She is active involved in the Baptiste community and have assisted a handful of programs for the Baptiste Institute. She also spent a year studying under Saraswati Om (An assistant to Sri Dharma Mittra) and her love and appreciation of the classical teachings of Dharma Yoga grew, so her teachings reflect this style as well. In addition, Jennifer is certified in Ki-Power Vinyasa, Thai Massage Sacred Bodywork and is a lululemon alumni Ambassador for Brooklyn.

Raised in Upstate New York riding horses and playing sports was her life. After graduating from Old Dominion University on a Division I Lacrosse Scholarship, she discovered yoga. Yoga challenged her on a physical level but the spiritual aspect to the practice is what got her hooked and wanting more. Yoga offers an amazing capability to create space in life and it has the power to transform us. It allows us to connect in full to our hearts, to our own unique rhythm of breath and to discovery of our true life force. It is Jennifer’s intention to serve and to share this belief.

She teaches a playful and challenging power flow emphasizing strength, alignment, and breath to empower others to create space in their soul and to seek a spiritual connection. Jennifer thanks Baron Baptiste, Master Sri Dharma Mittra, Isauro Fernandez and Elena Brower for their wisdom, and for inspiring her to cultivate her teachings. Her classes are open to students of all levels.
