“I could tell you my adventures—beginning from this morning,” said Alice a little timidly; “but it’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.” ~Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland Jennifer was the kid who always got hit in the face with the ball in gym class. Convinced that she was an anatomical disaster, she first stepped onto a yoga mat in 2009 and was amazed to find that she wasn’t a complete klutz. Initially, she practiced asana because she hated all other forms of exercise and needed to feel successful, but over time she realized that yoga positively transformed her life beyond the mat in ways that she hadn’t anticipated. True to her undiagnosed neurodivergence, she became hyper-focused on the practice and decided to become a yoga teacher so that she could share her experience with others. Jennifer is a 2014 graduate of Marni Task's 200 hour Jivasara training in Cleveland and a 2024 graduate of Shauna Gilsdorf’s 200 hour Awakening Grace training in Toledo. Because her practice and training are inspired by the Jivamukti, Anusara, and Himalayan traditions, her classes interweave the physical and spiritual elements of yoga. When you practice with Jennifer, expect to focus on bodily alignment. At times you will flow with the breath, and other times you will melt slowly and intentionally into and out of each asana. In addition, expect her to share nuggets of wisdom that she has learned from the yogis who came before her. In her other lives, Jennifer has three neurodivergent children, one amazing partner who inspires her to be her highest self, and almost three decades of experience honing her craft as a high school English teacher. She is an amalgamation of her past experiences, she wakes up every morning slightly different than she was the day before, and she is constantly striving to find her Ananda and return to the person that she was meant to be.
