As a RYT200 (registered yoga teacher with 200 hours training), Jennifer focuses on making yoga accessible for all. This means that if anyone wants to incorporate yoga they can, no matter what their body type is, experience, location, or any other obstacle they may face. As a vision impaired individual, Jennifer learns to practice and guide others in yoga through verbal cues and having people build up their awareness of their bodies. To Jennifer, yoga is not about what it looks like, and is all about what it feels like.She has even regularly led virtual chair yoga for the blind through verbal cues and guidance.
Styles that Jennifer enjoys practings and teaching include accessibility (using chairs, props, wall, ground), gentle flows, and restorative (using props to hold the body in poses). Jennifer has also trained in Tai Chi and enjoys blending it into special yoga classes. Any time she leads yoga she puts out invitations for others to follow along, and ultimately encourages them to listen to their own needs to do what they feel is flowing for them.
Spiritual healing can absolutely occur during yoga sessions. Guided reflections, focus on breathing (receiving and releasing), and getting energy moving with intentions can all contribute to improved well being on all levels. Experiences can vary depending on what a person's intentions are.
