Jennifer has been teaching in the Washington, DC area for more than a decade after completing her first yoga training in 2004. She is one of only 21 endorsed Insight Yoga teachers worldwide. Developed by Sarah Powers, one of the most senior Yin Yoga teachers, Insight Yoga is a heart-centered approach that interweaves the insights and practices of Yin and Yang Yoga, Buddhism, Taoism, and Transpersonal Psychology. Jennifer has also studied Yin Yoga with its founder Paul Grilley and Biff Mithoefer.
Jennifer is a dedicated Dharma student and regularly attends practice retreats at Bhante Gunaratana’s Bhavana Society. She received the Five Mindfulness Trainings and her Dharma name, Peaceful Family of the Heart, from Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh.
Self-Awakening Yoga was developed by Don Stapleton of the Kripalu Center and Nosara Yoga Institute, and is based on his personal exploration of yoga after a spinal injury. The gentle movements are designed to recover freedom of movement, release emotional blockages, and unleash one’s creative potential.
The Quiet Practice of Yin Yoga offers a much needed balance for our active and stressful “yang” lifestyle. The meditative atmosphere that comes with holding floor postures for several minutes presents a unique environment for introspection, unlocking a door to patience, compassion, and “inter-being” in our yoga practice and daily life.
