Hi, I'm Jen!

I'm an Ashtanga Yoga teacher based in Encinitas, CA. I recently moved here to be with my teacher Tim Miller and finish fourth series.

I left behind me a thriving Mysore Program in Washington, DC which is currently being run by my crew of teachers and assistants.

I offer online courses and classes in both yoga and Pilates, I travel around the country to teach workshops and retreats that deep dive into yoga, health, and wellness.

This is an interactive, online deep dive into the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga. This six week course will help build your knowledge and confidence in practicing and teaching the Primary Series postures. You will improve your foundation, get online support and feedback, and be a part of a community to help support you in your practice.

Mentorship Program

Teachers talk a lot about holding space. But what I have learned is that it's not actually space we are holding - it's people.

This program is for students and teachers who want the help and guidance of someone who pushed play before you did. You are not alone. ❤️

"I benefitted from Jen's example, her encouragement, and her no-drama approach to the practice. Jen teaches her students to show up, over and over, she provides support and also leaves a lot of space for each student to learn what the practice is for them."

"Jen's instruction is accurate and effective. Through her teaching she empowers students and allows them to flourish and grow."

Sandy Fennel
Yoga Student and Teacher

"This course is great. The reason why I bought it is to help me to remember and re-focus on these foundation postures after having practiced Ashtanga a number of years. The foundation poses are really important. The way Jen broke down the poses helped me to slow it down and think about each part of it. I have to say it was hard!"
