What others are saying
Until I started attending Jen's yoga classes I never really understood what yoga was. All my life I have gone off and on to yoga classes only to leave frustrated and feeling "inadequate" and often times feeling blah. After attending Jen's Iyengar classes I now have a passion, appreciation and understanding of what yoga is and should be!

Hi! I help interpreters, like you, get out of pain, feel better and establish a long-lasting career.
Interpreting is a job we all love, but let's be honest it is hard on the body and especially now that we are doing more on video. And the reality is no one talks about the effects on the body! How can we have a sustainable career if we don't have the techniques and tools to address the accumulated stress, burnout or compassion fatigue. In fact, taking care of yourself can seem subversive or wrong.
Ok, I want to change this?
Why me? Because I have been interpreting for over 25 years and have integrated a yoga practice that has empowered me to know how to help myself get out of pain and release the stress from building up on my body and in my mind. This time-honored method of yoga is perfectly suited to address the unique needs that interpreters have.
Not all yoga classes are good for our shoulders and wrists
Keeping up a routine is just hard without support. I myself had to find a way to stay consistent once I moved to Mexico and left all my practice buddies. I found my own zoom buddy way before zoom was our life.
90 days to ditch the stress of interpreting spotlights your physical needs, your mental health and get you into an easy routine. I think it's time we have a safe, community to support each other on a healthy, positive path.
I'm a certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher CIYT Level 3 and a Certified Yoga Therapist. Years of training, not just hours. Also, I have studied Cranial Sacral, Somatic Movement, Vedic Counseling with Dr. Frawley, and currently studying Ayurveda Therapist Ayuskama Ayurveda Institute.

I got to know my body again and slow down the aging process.
I’m never bored in class because the specific focus on the body takes you on a journey and there is just so much voyaging to do!!! The mind is fully connected with the body and the body is working and activated because of it. I have met few teachers with this talent and Jen has it.”
"Clear instruction, variety, skillful sequencing and high level skill."
"Jen mixes the magic of yoga and the science of yoga in an easy to understand practice."
