As a former ballet dancer, Jen found an analogous allure in the graceful flow of Vinyasa yoga.
“There’s something ethereal and magical about this practice,” says Jen. “I originally saw familiarity in its movements, and that’s what kept me coming back for more.”
As Jen’s relationship to yoga blossomed, she noticed a deepening awareness of herself and her connection to others. This introspection led Jen to a newfound understanding of her own thoughts and beliefs.
“As I continued to practice, I became aware of something beyond the movement, a thing deeper than I could explain,” she says. “Suffice it to say, the more I showed up to my mat, the more I knew I had found my home.”
Jen earned her original 200-hour certification at Texas Power Yoga, and in 2013 achieved a 500-hour certification from Live Love Teach. She has benefited from study with a who’s-who of yoga luminaries, including Baron Baptiste and Ana Forrest, and holds her current 200-ERYT and 500-hour RYT with Yoga Alliance.
