Hi, I'm Jennifer! As both a Yoga Teacher and a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, I believe that reaching optimal health is a journey of bioindivuality: we are each unique. Your yoga practice shouldn't look exactly like someone else's. The diet that works best for you, may not be the one that works best for your friend. I have found that practicing yoga is one of the very best ways to cultivate the self-awareness that leads you on this journey to optimal health. I completed my first Teacher Training program in 2009 at Gaia Flow Yoga in Addison, TX. I taught power flow at a variety of studios for 3 years and then found my way to American Power Yoga in Dallas, where I completed a second Teacher Training program in 2012. One of the most valuable lessons I've learned from my training is that yoga truly should be for everyone. So when I teach, I try to avoid saying the names of the poses. Why would that matter? Well, how are you supposed to know what to do when your teacher says "move into Warrior 2" if you've never been to a yoga classes before? What the heck is Warrior 2? I like to tell you where your right foot goes, where your left hand goes, and most importantly, don't forget to breathe and not take yourself so seriously.
