CLASSES / WORKSHOPS / RETREATS / TEACHER TRAINING

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.

Open into Spring Day Retreat with Jennifer

Roundhouse farmVictoria BC   

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 Body is a Spiral - Twists bring a fresh sense of aliveness into the body and mind because of their ability to "unwind", reduce tension, and free up stagnation held in the deep interior of the body. This class focuses on the spiral line of the body beginning 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 breathwork or pranayama.

1pm - 3:30pm - Open into Spring - In five-element theory, spring is related to the wood element and the Liver/Gallbladder and is considered a time of renewal. During this time of year, we can become especially congested and feel stressed and tense. Through using meditation techniques, yin yoga, and restorative yoga, our afternoon session will be very supportive and gentle as we unwind this stress and explore the energetics of the spring.
