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 yoga therapy, movement therapeutics, anatomy, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, 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.

Healing the Core Sheath :: Yoga Immersion with Jennifer Raye

Orcas Mandala, Orcas Island, Washington (9am-10:30am every day)

This immersion will explore how we can work with the "core sheath" of the physical and energetic body. The core includes gently stretching and toning the inner leg, pelvic floor, psoas, and diaphragm. The core sheath also has a close relationship with postural imbalance and the energetic chakra system. Throughout class we'll practice the integration of conscious breath and movement techniques designed to increase neurological and circulatory flow leading to deep healing. Open to all levels.

Day Retreat with Jennifer (SOLD OUT - WAITLIST BEING TAKEN)

Roundhouse farmVictoria 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 Gateway of the Shoulders, Jaw, and Neck -- The shoulders, upper chest, jaw, and neck are incredibly important when it comes to breath capacity and circulation of Prana or energy. Unfortunately, many people discover tension and holding in this area due computer use, bad posture, held grief, and other factors. This class will help to unwind tension leading to a new relationship with the jaw and neck and greater freedom from strain in the yoga postures. The class begins with a series of therapeutic movements done on the floor designed to create structural integration and somatic awareness. It then slowly and deliberately leads to standing poses and finishes with breath work or pranayama.

1pm - 3:30pm ~ Nourish the Senses and Access the Cranium -- The ancient yogis considered the sense doors of sight and sound portals into the cranium, and the mystical realms of the pituitary and pineal gland. Through using meditation techniques, yin yoga, and restorative yoga, our afternoon session will be very supportive and gentle as we explore the energetics of the cranium.

Yin Yoga, SATYA and the 4 Foundations of Mindfulness

Orcas Mandala, Orcas Island, Washington (5pm-7pm both days)

prayatna saithilya ananta samapattibhyam ~ Yoga Sutra 11.47

"By relaxation of all strain in the yoga posture, there is a merging with the infinite"

 These classes bring together the slow and contemplative traditions of yin yoga, SATYA, and mindfulness meditation. In a Yin Yoga and SATYA (sensory awareness training for yoga attunement) practice, postures are done on the floor and affect deeper tissues in the physical body as well as revitalizing the energy body.

The slower nature of the yin yoga and SATYA practice also helps to deepen our mindfulness practice by giving us the space and time to explore the more subtle aspects of our bodies, minds and hearts. During our session together we will look to e Satipatthāna Sutta  or he Four Foundations of Mindfulness to guide us.
