Jen Daniels, E-RYT 500, has practiced yoga for over 20 years and completed her initial training in 2013 with Jennifer Prugh’s Joy of Yoga and Jen finished her 500-hour training with Julie Rader-Wellman’s Mukti school in 2016.  Additionally, Jen has certifications in Restorative yoga, Yin Yoga, Youth Yoga, Yoga for Athletes, SUP Yoga and Flying Lotus (aerial yoga).

Through a strong asana practice, Jen has found that deepening her connection to mind-body has transformed all areas of life. Yoga allows people to find the best version of themselves and gives them permission to share it with the world. By learning to pause before reacting and to breathe when life becomes stressful, Jen has found that yoga has improved personal and professional relationships as well as improving the ability to shift perspectives.

In addition to creating safe and challenging sequences that are alignment focused, practices infuse pranayama and mediation. As a child who had a propensity to cause trouble on the soccer field because she was doing cartwheels and handstands instead of defending the goal, Jen loves inversions and arm balances. Her background in equestrian vaulting (www.americanvaulting.org) has created a distinct curiosity of advanced asanas. Through creating a strong and stable core, Jen believes that having the opportunity to play and enjoy the movement your body has to offer is one of the most beautiful aspects of the asana practice. 

Jen also has her Master's degree in Speech-Language Pathology and has practiced since 2007. She enjoys using her depth of breath and movement to assist her clients. Additionally, Jen is fascinated by sensory processing as it relates to speech and language development. 

Kind words from one of my lovely students:

"Hi, I just wanted to share that one of the most important aspects of yourself that you share in class is framing everything so it is about succeeding. Sometimes aerial can feel a bit competitive which can lead to feeling a sense of failure. In your class I don't feel there is an emphasis on what I cannot do today. Instead I feel there is an emphasis on what I can accomplish today and being grateful for what our bodies can do today. Thank you for this gift."
