Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
My Manduka mat is where i practice being who i want to be in my life – it's my playground to try on fearlessness, patience, play, steadfastness, compassion and faith.

Why Manduka?: Manduka was my first choice after several years of practice on my first, lovingly, worn mat. I knew I was making an investment that would last for years to come. It was tough to transition over from a mat that had been with me since day one, but my Manduka will take me through this lifetime.

Jennifer currently holds a Registered Yoga Teacher 200 Hour Level Certification through Yoga Alliance. Jennifer completed her foundational flow teacher training through YogaSource Los Gatos under the direction of Linda McGrath, and completed the teacher assistant program with Erin Matteucci. Jennifer’s classes offer inspiration, first-hand knowledge, and what she has learned through becoming her own best teacher. And of course - lots of smiles! In her classes you will find an atmosphere where you are welcome regardless of your journey, practice is encouraged, and kindness is always offered. She learned early on in her practice, and now as a teacher, to laugh, smile, cry, take it as it comes, or whatever resides within, or in everyday life - to be real. She has been practicing yoga since 2003 (Bikram, Power, Yin, Ashtanga, Vinyasa), and present day influences include Baron Baptiste, Colleen Saidman, Rodney Yee, Sharon Gannon, David Life, Sally Kempton, Jon Burras, and Carlos Pomeda.
