"Jen René and her online platform Ashtanga Central have given me the tools needed to learn and grow as a student, as well as an inclusive community of support. With her contagious enthusiasm and approachable teaching style, I have the confidence to get out of my comfort zone and embrace this challenging, beautiful practice."
"Jen René has opened up the world of Ashtanga to me with her inclusive approach and crystal clear teaching style."
"With Ashtanga Central, Jen has created a community. Jen’s monthly office hours, live trainings, sutra studies and other practice and study opportunities have been invaluable in supporting my practice in so many ways that it would take too long to list. I’m so glad I joined and I highly recommend."
"Jen is such a good teacher because she has years of experience as a teacher and student of ashtanga yoga and Pilates. She excels at balancing praise for sincere effort and encouragement to try a bit harder or go one pose farther. Jen's verbal cues and suggestions are thoughtful and tailored to each individual student. Her Mysore classes are punctuated by the sound of Jen's voice cheering students on with a "yes!" or helping a practitioner thinking through a particular challenge. She knows what it is to be a student because she is one herself, and one of her most effective teaching skills is her ability to share her challenges and frustrations. As serious as Jen is about yoga and yoga philosophy, she is genuinely funny and kind and caring. Her students thrive because Jen clearly communicates strong expectations in an atmosphere of safety and support."
"Ashtanga Central has been a great way to learn, build community, and stay accountable to my practice. Jen does an amazing job sharing her wealth of information, and tailoring it to individual needs!”
"Jen's robust platform really spoke to me. The weekly Mysore holds me accountable with my practice; the array of other videos is super helpful when I'm researching a pose or have questions; office hours is AMAZING; and the monthly or bimonthly mini-workshops, training, and the occasional pilates are all stellar - both in their technical, physical expertise and the practical explanations that make sense to me and are DOABLE in MY BODY, not just the body of a model on social media. It is so comforting to practice with others remotely, and just like in the Mysore room, and inspiring to see and hear instructions to both those who have progressed further or not progressed as far in asana with me. This program has been my COVID lifeline, and one I doubt I will give up even if/when things return to "normal."

HI, I'M JEN RENÉ
The founder of Ashtanga Central, your hub for all things Ashtanga. If you're a serious student or yoga teacher, this is the place for you.
Ever feel stuck on an asana? Or like you don’t even know where to begin? Do you feel like you're in this alone? Do you need someone to hold you accountable? Maybe you just want to have some people to talk about yoga with. If any of that sounds familiar, Ashtanga Central is for you!
If you're looking for someone who’s put in the time, who knows what works, who has practiced with the best teachers ever, and who has trained thousands of practitioners then I can help you.
It's smart to want a teacher who’s worked with hundreds of students and hundreds of different body types, who’s been practicing for a couple decades, and who's honed not only their yoga skills but also their skills in communicating with students. It’s smart to want a teacher who is a little farther down the yogic path to help show you the way.
That's why I'm inviting you to join my Ashtanga Central Program.
Ashtanga Central is a yoga platform designed with students in mind. My goal as a teacher is to make Ashtanga as fun and sustainable as possible. I'm trying to take down all the barriers and build personal relationships with students, just like I would in a studio, so that you feel supported in practice and so that you have an experienced tailored to you.

See you on the inside!
