Certified Yoga Instructor
Hometown: Fort McMurray, AB
Jennifer is RYT200 and RPYT Certified and was born and raised right here in Fort McMurray. While pregnant with her second child, Jennifer found herself taking weekly prenatal yoga classes at one of the local gyms. She quickly realized the positive influence her weekly practice was having on her life so when she happened upon a prenatal teacher-training program offered by Mamata Yoga in Edmonton, she decided to take it simply so she could compliment the work she did as a birth doula (or so she thought!). It turns out that yoga training program would change her life as it set her on the path to dig deeper into yoga’s teachings.
Investigating her passion a little further, she decided to complete her 200HR yoga teacher training and graduated in May 2014 from the South Okanagan Yoga Academy (SOYA). She has slowly been learning and evolving as a yoga teacher ever since and is excited to share her wisdom and kindness with people who might not necessarily think they’re “able” to practice yoga (much like she thought of herself for a very long time). Jennifer is also one module away from completing her Curvy Yoga Certification and is excited to inspire women (and men) of all shapes and sizes to have the courage to walk into the yoga studio, get on their mat and just breathe…because that’s a great start – and we all gotta start somewhere!
