What’s your yoga story?
Jeni started her yoga journey over 20 years ago. Once she started practicing, there really was no turning back. Yoga has been there, ebbing and flowing through her personal journey. A place to feel supported and safe through her culinary career and raising her children. A constant, magical, sacred place.
In 2015 she decided to take it to another level and enrolled in Teacher Training at CorePower. She felt that she was at a point in her yoga practice to truly focus on giving back. Her 200 HR and starting to teach, only drove her passion for bodies, breath and transformation. Needing more than the physical asana, she found her way to Samadhi to enroll in their 500 HR Extended Teacher Training.This journey has strengthened her own practice, her teaching and knowledge far beyond anything she could have ever imagined!
Her focus is on creating intentional breath to cultivate awareness through body and mind. Slowing down to feel and embracing the quiet spaces between and the power in stillness.
Jeni is a healer; Nourishing body and soul through mindful eating and movement.
What’s your favorite way to slow down?
Doing restorative yoga at home with all of my lovely supportive props or cooking in my kitchen.
Describe your most peaceful day.
Waking up when my body wants, peace and quiet while I drink my tea and reflect. Walk to and take a yoga class, no time issues. Spend the afternoon cleaning my house and making dinner with my kids. Either watching a movie or reading as I wind down the day.
Why do you love teaching Supportive Yoga formats?
There is nothing like supportive yoga! When I realized that this style of yoga existed, I was determined to share it with the world. It is the balance to ALL that we are constantly doing, we NEED this yoga! It is a beautiful way to heal the body while allowing the natural mediation of the mind.
What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness also involves acceptance, meaning that we pay attention to our thoughts and feelings without judging them—without believing, for instance, that there’s a “right” or “wrong” way to think or feel in a given moment. When we practice mindfulness, our thoughts tune into what we’re sensing in the present moment rather than rehashing the past or imagining the future.
