I absolutely LOVE Jennifer’s Yin practice. She is very soothing and meditative as a yogi! Thank you for all the encouraging words!
I lived a vagabond life before moving to Nashville in 2008, with my current home being my 43rd residence since birth. Yoga came into my life in 2010 when a friend brought me to my future mentor Gillian St. Clair’s class, though I didn’t make time for it regularly until 2013. My practice began as a purely physical endeavor, but the mental health benefits immediately came to fruition. I began to notice that the peace I felt after devoting time to breathe and make shapes gradually enveloped my thoughts and interactions outside class. I am also a pediatric occupational therapist which is similar to teaching yoga in the sense that in both I facilitate growth from a place of compassion. I strive to create an atmosphere where individuals feel comfortable exploring movement and effort as well as rest. I respect and honor the traditions of yoga and give gratitude to the generations of teachers who have passed their knowledge and this practice to us. I’m a mother of 4, wife to a beautiful sage who gives me roots, and a sister to many: all roles I honor. I am a fierce challenger and foul-mouthed lover of Coen Brothers and Wes Anderson films, an avid traveler who loves to photograph and experience the world, food, and listen to people’s stories. I have a 200hr RYT, my 300hr in progress, and a doctorate in occupational therapy.
