I decided to give yoga a try back in the summer of 2015. Having battled anxiety for many years, I was looking for an additional "something" to supplement the avenues I was already pursuing to calm the chaos in my head.
I quickly saw the benefits of a regular yoga practice. My body was stronger, but more importantly my mind was calmer. I began to savor the small moments with my husband and children instead of constantly worrying about what was going on tomorrow or next week or next year. I became more open-minded and less judgmental. In a nutshell, I began to embrace the present moment. This was a major shift in mindset. And what a happy, more peaceful mindset it has been!
I graduated from my yoga teacher training in February 2017 and knew I had found my new mission in life: to bring yoga to those dealing with chronic pain or who otherwise did not think yoga was accessible. I opened Breathe with Jennie in April 2017 with a passion for finding customizations of yoga poses for each and every student that walks in the door. I love to sprinkle breathing exercises and meditation into my classes. I intentionally keep class sizes small so that every student receives individual attention.
