You can also upload videos here and get feedback on your practice from Jen. Plus, the opportunity to join a small group for peer support and mentoring.
"Jen's Second Series Interactive Online course provided an "in person" experience through the effective use of technology and her vast teaching experience. It was as good if not better than being there in person - because I can go back to the videos and FB group and re-watch lessons. I enhanced my own practice and learned from the struggles of others in the course group."
"The Second Series Training with Jen totally re-inspired my love for this beautiful & transformative practice. It was made accessible for everyone, in a fun, informative & safe environment. I cannot wait to spend more time practicing with this awesome teachers."
"I've been stuck at researching Eka Pada Sirsasana for several years... Jen's suggestion of paying more attention to some specific primary series poses as well as researching/practicing (without glossing over anything) up to Tittibhasana E is looking very promising (time and practice will tell)."
"Jen has a commanding presence - and it translates will both on FB and video calls. It is fascinating to me how she can "diagnose" our videos so well. I had complete trust in the material/teacher."
The Second Series Interactive qualifies for 30 Yoga Alliance continuing education credits.
