Jennie was born in Malton, North Yorkshire, living there until she was 19 and then moved to London in search of a career. She stayed in London for another 20 years, and ended up as IT operations Manager at a worldwide company, then decided it was time for a change, to do something less stressful. So in 2006 she began to learn holistic massage, she qualified In 2007 and found that she enjoyed it and was good at it, so decided to take the next step and to train to be sports massage therapist, gaining more knowledge of the human anatomy enabling her to treat soft tissue injuries more effectively. Since then Jennie has treated clients such as professional footballers, rowers, cricketers, dancers, with a range of injuries like sciatica, whiplash, tendinitis, shin splints, producing successful results.

Jennie has travelled the world, after returning in 2009 began attending yoga classes at Breeze yoga studio in Kent and found that she really enjoyed it, and also found other benefits started happening to her, it helped with her stress and anxiety, and helped build her self-esteem and confidence as well as helping with an ongoing neck problem she had, and she lost weight. She knew she had found something that was meant for her and decided that she wanted to share the benefits with others and took the plunge to train as a yoga instructor, qualifying with 200hr RYT in 2012 with Anne-Marie Newland of Sun Power Yoga in Greece. She then returned home to Scarborough in North Yorkshire to set up her own business hoping to help others find peace and happiness in their own lives through yoga and massage. In 2015 Jennie travelled to India and gained her 300hr Advanced yoga teacher training with The Yoga Darshanam in Mysore India. Jennie is now a 500hr RYT.
