Jennifer completed her 200 hr. certification at Essencia Yoga and has devoted herself to an amazing and rewarding journey through yoga and meditation. Prior, she practiced independently while working as a Special Needs teacher in Geneva, IL. Wanting to further her personal growth, Jennifer delved into her 200 hr. course work; the ideal to find balance, wholeness, and appreciation in all parts of life. She is now certified under Yoga Alliance as a Yoga Practitioner under the Sivananda lineage. In addition, Jennifer is currently advancing her knowledge of the power of balanced and active Chakras through an 8-week workshop dedicated to traveling through the Chakras and creating a deeper focus inward. Currently registered as RYT 200hr. instructor under the Sivananda lineage, Jennifer is excited and ready to share the knowledge she has gained through her practice with others who also seek balance in the body, in life, as well as an awakening and peace to the mind. In addition, Jennifer is also licensed in teaching Yoga for the Special Child under the Sonia Sumar method. With both her educational background, her work with various students with mild to severe disabilities, and her additional knowledge of yoga and meditation practice, Jennifer is open and prepared to modify techniques and practices to accommodate all practitioners, including children with Special Needs.
