The effects became not only physical but filled Jenn with abundant joy, wisdom, love and most importantly a sense of home and peace within her own body. The exploding desire to share this with others became a reality when completing her 200 RYT Yoga Alliance certified training in 2010 with Ally Bogard (Gaiatri Yoga).
Along with being a Reiki Master/practitioner, and an Intuitive Coach her teachings have also expanded into guiding meditation, teaching trauma informed and SUP yoga.
She is excited and honoured to share her passion and deep love for all that the practice holds while being mindful that she is always and forever will be a student first.
