Classes, Workshops, Retreats and Teacher Training.
The yoga I teach is therapeutic in nature, alignment focused, and based on the individual needs of students.
So much more than exercise; I offer the physical asana (postures) interwoven with deeper spiritual, philosophical, and energetic teachings. I use deliberate and intelligent sequencing, props (such as blankets and straps), and draw on my experience, and long term study, of a variety of traditions including movement therapeutics, anatomy, Traditional Chinese Medicine, spiritual psychology, and Theravadin Buddhism.
In my classes students consistently find greater capacity, less pain in their bodies, and a new level in the postures.
My intention is to create a safe and warm space where depth in practice is encouraged. My students appreciate the warm and welcoming container I provide which allows one to dive more fully into the deep experience yoga and meditation provides.
All classes run 5:30-7:30pm (2186 Oak Bay Avenue), Victoria BC

These classes are designed to be a well rounded approach to yoga. Some gentle joint opening movements, some standing alignment poses, and some restorative and restful practices to finish it off. Class is very appropriate for beginner yoga students as well as more seasoned practitioners. If you want to practice in a small group, spend more time with the poses, or you feel you would benefit from one on one attention these classes are for you. Meditation and various breathing techniques are introduced during class and there is also the opportunity to ask questions and address issues and injuries specific to your body. The class involves lots of hands on and manual adjustments that lead to greater ease and space in the body.

Day Retreat with Jennifer
Roundhouse farm (formerly Sleeping Dog Farm), Victoria BC
**single class $30+tax, full session (2 classes) $50+tax
Practice with Jennifer at the beautiful Roundhouse Farm. These 2.5 hour classes allow for skillful sequencing and an immersion that is not possible in shorter classes. Class size is small and students receive individual attention. Each class involves a short talk and a movement practice. Take both sessions or just one. Each session is appropriate for all levels including seasoned practitioners and those who have limited mobility and/or flexibility.
9:30am - 12pm ~ The Ground Beneath Our Feet
This class begins with a series of therapeutic movements done on the floor designed for structural integration. The class then slowly and deliberately leads to standing poses that bring stability and strength to the legs and feet. We'll explore how working the foundation of our poses through the arches of the feet, opening the hips and sacrum, and activating the meridians, creates a deep sense of grounding in our practice.
1pm - 3:30pm ~ The Fluid Pulse Within
Our afternoon session will be very supportive and gentle. We will explore the fluid body using sliding gliding motions on the floor and a series of yin yoga and restorative yoga postures. We will explore how releasing into gravity and unwinding habitual strain patterns helps us find more ease, fatigue reduction, and lightness in our bodies and minds.
