Welcome to Breathe With Jennie!
I’m an insured Yoga and Functional Movement instructor and an Accessible Yoga ambassador.
I opened Breathe with Jennie in April 2017 with a passion for finding customizations or alternative postures that accommodate physical challenges for every student who walks in the door.
I started practicing yoga in 2015 for the many health benefits yoga offers, and I loved it so much that I decided to become a certified yoga instructor.
At the same time, I developed persistent pain in my knee and shoulder that wouldn’t go away, and some poses aggravated those joints instead of helping them. I realized that my instructor training lacked in-depth explorations of anatomy, and the current trend for faster-moving yoga classes can add additional stress on the body.
As a result of my own experience, I’ve dedicated myself to learning more about how our bodies work so that I can offer customizations to help students with any number of physical limitations. I also intentionally keep my classes small (no more than 9 students) so that I can focus on each student to make sure they’re moving mindfully.
I am particularly passionate about providing a welcoming space for the following types of students:
• Folks with injuries or persistent pain
• Seniors and those who are 50
• Atypical or larger bodies
• Those who have never done yoga before or haven’t done it in a long time
• Anyone experiencing stress in life or needs some quiet time
I look forward to practicing with you!
