About Yoga

Yoga balances the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of ourselves. Yoga is comprised of postures, breathing exercises and meditation.

The postures stretch, tone, and strengthen muscles, joints and spine. They also stimulate internal organs, glands and nerves. By releasing physical and mental tensions, the postures liberate vast resources of energy.

The breathing exercises revitalize and cleanse, while the practice of meditation brings increased clarity and inner peace. As we practice yoga we become more and more aware of the inter-connectedness of body, mind and spirit.

As body, mind, and spirit are more deeply integrated, our lives begin to flow with optimal ease, energy and intelligence.

Reviews

I have been a student of Jennifer's for about 4 years now.  She is a wonderful teacher who is careful to meet each student's needs.   I find myself looking forward to every class I can attend.  They start my mornings off in a beautiful state of mind and body.   I have gained a great deal of flexibility, strength and a balanced way of viewing the world.    I feel that my overall health has improved during these last four years.  I started because of a back injury and think it is one of the best things I have ever done for myself.   I find that Yoga is great for the stress of everyday life.   I would encourage anyone who is considering yoga - or the need for more exercise in their lives to give her classes a try.  Yoga is invigorating and relaxing - just go for it!

After five years of taking yoga with Jennifer I am continually impressed with her skills as a yoga instructor.  She tailors each class to meet the needs of the students and encourages us to strive to improve and to embrace yoga as a means to better health and well being.  Students who are new to the practice of yoga are guided and helped in an open and supportive manner.  I would encourage anyone who is even thinking about taking yoga to give it a try and I guarantee that you will find it relaxing and satisfying.
