"My yoga teaching career has never been stronger, and much of that I certainly attribute to the strong foundational knowledge I gained from training with Jennifer!"

What program(s) did you do with Jennifer?

I participated in the 2015 200 hour Hatha Yoga Training and the 2016 200 hour Vinyasa Yoga Training.

What was your life like before you took your training(s)?

I participated in my first YTT with Jenn when I was 21 and just graduated college, so needless to say, life was very much all over the place!  I was certainly starting to dip my toe into the ocean that is yoga.

What results have you seen in your own life and/or careers since taking Jennifer's training?

Jennifer, and the experts she brought in, really helped me learn how to turn inward, manage my emotional, physical, and spiritual bodies, and taught me so much about yogic philosophy that I didn't know! These aspects certainly informed my life on and off the mat, and while everything is always a work in progress, I definitely found that I began to live with more presence.
