Jen fell in love with yoga from the very first time she stepped onto her mat. Through yoga, she has found not only physical strength and flexibility but peace and calm in an otherwise busy world. Jen has maintained a strong personal yoga practice for the past 4 years, a practice consisting mainly of hatha yoga, Kripalu, vinyasa flow, and meditation. She completed her 200 hour Yoga Teacher training at River Rock Yoga and Wellness in 2015 and is excited to bring her love for the practice to Metacomet. Jen has completed additional trainings in guided imagery, progressive muscle relaxation, yoga as trauma based therapy, and is a certified Reiki practitioner. In her life off the mat, Jen lives in West Hartford and works at Connecticut Children's Medical Center as a Certified Child Life Specialist.
Jen will be taking over Dave's Sunday Yoga class at 8am and will be sub'ing for Lindsey's Flow & Flexibility, Tuesdays at 6pm, for the summer, while Lindsey is in Maine. Jen will be at Lindsey's class tonight (June 23rd) if you would like to stop and say hello!
When the workout is over - above all else - you should have fun. It's important to find something you love (though you may not realize it right away). The fun keeps you motivated and helps you achieve your goals. Be a superstar like Mimi who climbed that rope and posed for a picture before coming down!
