Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
When I step onto my Manduka, I am stepping onto my sacred space. The place where my body and mind are free to become one. With each breathe, asana, and drop of sweat I learn to let my heart soar & my spirit blossom...all while on my Manduka.
-Jo Beth Richards

Jennifer has always been fascinated with the abilities of the human body, by its movement, its strength, and limitless capabilities. She studied Exercise Physiology and graduated with a degree in Sport Management. It wasn’t until her first yoga class that she found a natural healing effect and calming union between the mind and body. Yoga is so much more than a physical workout~ Its about letting go, staying present and starting fresh with each new breath. Jennifer fell in love with the detoxifying qualities and clarity she felt after a hot vinyasa practice and wanted to share this experience with others. Jennifer has studied with Toby Kumin and Natalie Smith of Boston Yoga and also completed Level I and Level II Teacher Trainings with Baron Baptiste. Her classes consist of a dynamic and powerful flow that emphasizes individual creativity, strength, flexibility, and balance. She encourages a playful approach to the practice and wants every participant to learn the importance and ease of laughter and being fully present in the moment. The opportunity to practice on and off the mat, the eagerness to learn, and the ability to grow physically, mentally, and spiritually continues to present itself in many ways ~ It is a personal and individual choice to be fully awake and open to these endless possibilities.
