Jennifer Mueller has been teaching yoga students of all ages since 2008 and directs the children’s and family yoga program Breathing Space in Washington DC.
Jen is a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher and Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher (RCYT) specializing in yoga for children and families as well as prenatal and post-natal moms. In addition to being a trainer for ChildLight Yoga® and Yoga 4 Classrooms®, Jen holds a variety of children’s yoga certifications. She completed her adult yoga teacher training at Willow Street Yoga in Takoma Park, MD and her prenatal training with Janet Caulfield of Urban Yoga. Jen is also a Certified Educator of Infant Massage (CEIM) through Infant Massage USA and an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).
Jen founded Breathing Space to create a hub for family yoga in Washington DC and to share her enthusiasm for age- and developmentally-appropriate poses, games, and songs with yogis of all ages and hopes to offer her students freedom she finds in yoga.
Prior to teaching yoga full time, Jen spent more than a decade in non-profit administration and advocacy communications. Her experience in social change movements and managing charitable organizations has been extremely helpful when working with schools and community organizations to implement yoga and mindfulness programs for children.
