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.

Radiant Resilient Immunity Day Retreat with Jennifer

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 - Radiant Resilient Immunity - The bodies lymphatic channels are very important when it comes to overall immunity and the circulation of Prana, or energy. This class will help to free the Lungs and unwind the lymphatic system which supports deep immunity. 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 - Release into Fall - In five element theory, the months of fall are related to the metal element and are considered a time of surrender. Fall is a time of transition. It is a time when "vata" is more predominant, which can cause feelings of unsteadiness or anxiety. Because of this, practices that help us to find grounding and resilience support us in finding harmony this time of year. Through using meditation techniques, yin yoga, and restorative yoga, our afternoon session will be very supportive and gentle as we explore the energetics of fall.

Still Mind, Open Heart Day Retreat with Jennifer

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.

9:30am - 12pm -  Lotus of the Open Heart - "Smaller than the small, greater than the great, the atma dwells in the cave of the heart of all creatures." ~ Katha Upanishad

The Heart is considered particularly important due to its role of circulating blood and housing the "Shen" or "spirit". When the heart is blocked there can be poor posture, upper back pain, a lack of compassion, and an excess of emotional difficulty. This class will emphasize kindness, and open the shoulders and lungs in order to free the flow of blood into the heart centre. The class begins with a series of therapeutic movements done on the floor designed to create structural integration and somatic awareness (SATYA). It then slowly and deliberately leads to active poses and finishes with heart centred meditation.

1pm - 3:30pm - Soaking in the Still Mind - As we slow down, breath, body, and mind unify and we awaken to more subtle experience. Through "soaking practices" such as meditation techniques, yin yoga, and restorative yoga, our afternoon session will be very supportive and gentle as we explore the teachings of stillness.
