First introduced to yoga in 1999, Jennifer began her teaching journey in 2007.
Since then, she has been teaching full time, logged over 700 hours of study, and has led local and regional workshops, retreats & trainings. She is on staff as the Co-Director/Founder of Twin Cities Yoga Collective and founded Balance yoga studio in 2008. She has been most influenced by her teachers, Rusty Wells, Biff Mithoefer and Sarah Powers and has been assisting Biff at his Yin Yoga trainings at the Omega Institute and Yogaville since 2012. Deeply transformed by Yin Yoga and Buddhism, Jennifer has spent the last four years integrating the practice and insight of Yin Yoga with the devotional elements of the Bhakti teachings. Jennifer’s group classes are unique and intelligently designed so students are able to cultivate a deep understanding of their individual needs through breath and both passive and active movement (asana) to increase strength and vitality through the entire system.
Jennifer is currently enrolled as a student at the Insight YogaInstitute under the guidance of Sarah & Ty Powers and is committed to sharing her deep love of yoga through karma work with under served populations.
Lover of the earth, hot tea, velvety wine and all things blue; Jennifer stays busy at home with her husband, four children, two dogs, two cats and five chickens.
