Jenny is a certified E-RYT yoga instructor. She has lead a variety of workshops and special classes, and coached multiple 200-hour teacher trainings. Since completing her 200-hour certification, she has remained committed to continuous learning to inform both her personal practice and her teaching. Jenny is an iRest® Yoga Nidra Level I Teacher-In-Training and is also pursuing her 500-hour certification.
Jenny has nurtured a long love affair with movement and the body as a means of creative and emotional expression. She came to yoga looking for relief from chronic physical pain issues and to find a quieter place in her mind during difficult her practice, Jenny discovered her capacity for transformation both on and off the mat. Through the interplay of music, philosophy, mindfulness, and attention to alignment Jenny strives to help her students find meditation in movement and experience their own potential for change and growth every time they come to their mat.
Jenny received her Master’s in Urban Planning and Policy from the University of Illinois at Chicago, specializing in community development, with experience in social, environmental, and reproductive justice efforts. She spent years doing applied social research focused on poverty and economic security issues to inform meaningful change. While passionate about what she was doing, Jenny felt at times removed from the impact of her work. Teaching yoga and meditation is what brings her closer to the change she hopes to help create in the world.
Jenny offers private yoga and meditation sessions, corporate yoga classes, and teaches group yoga classes at studios in Austin, TX.
