Like so many, Jen first came to the yoga mat because of an injury, seeking nothing more than to feel better and balance her body for running. She comes back to the mat because yoga invites her to embrace her body and mind with all its imperfections and then to look beyond them to the greater Self.
Jen brings a sense of joy and playfulness to her classes – both the
adult and kids classes – and hopes to offer her students the sense of
freedom she finds in yoga. She founded Breathing Space to create hub for
family yoga on Capitol Hill and share her enthusiasm for age-
and developmentally-appropriate poses, games, and songs with yogis of
Children’s Yoga Training
After thoroughly enjoying baby yoga classes with her daughter during
maternity leave and being unable to find an Itsy Bitsy class that fit
her schedule after going back to work, Jen stumbled on a listing for Itsy Bitsy Yoga facilitators training . . . and signed up.
Jen is a Yoga Alliance® Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RTY
200) and Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher (RCTY). She is also a
ChildLight Yoga trainer and licensed Yoga 4 Classrooms Professional Development Workshop trainer.
Off the Mat
Jen spent more than a decate as a nonprofit and environmental communications professional and has been living on Capitol Hill in Washington DC since 1999, which is also when she got properly fitted for running shoes for the first time since high school, dusted off her yoga mat, and started putting both to regular use. Jen is honored to be the mother of a 6 year old.
