Jenny believes a yoga practice is uniquely personal; the benefits are endless – from more open hips and hamstrings, greater lung capacity, healing from injury, a catalyst for a healthier lifestyle, spiritual exploration, or that mysterious yoga glow. As a student in a class setting, on a retreat, or in private instruction, she will begin with you, exactly where you are. Her goal is to make everyone feel welcome and comfortable, to give clear instructions and cues that allow each person to safely explore the postures, and to help you breathe, smile, and feel more open. Jenny began practicing yoga over 25 years ago and has been teaching for the last 20. Her initial 200-hour Yoga Alliance certification is from The Chicago Yoga Center. She has also completed certification with Judith Lasater specializing in Restorative Yoga at Om Yoga in NYC and completed the 500-hour Yoga Alliance certification with Sharyn Galindo at North Shore Yoga, where she assisted in teaching the 200-hour course. Jenny gained vast experience building a community and a yoga brand by working for Yoga Six as the Program Manager for the Midwest. She took the management experience to yogaview in 2018. In addition to managing and sustaining the yogaview community, she teaches classes both in studio and online, is a facilitator for the yoga teacher training program, and has grown a large private yoga clientele.
