Current Classes

I offer several ongoing classes around the Bay Area Peninsula as well as private and private-group sessions.

Setting The Body Free: Public Yoga Classes

“Jenn is a true teacher. Each class focuses on specific areas of the body, starting with fundamental movement then building into more complex movements of strength and flexibility with safe technique. Jenn’s particular strength is allowing students to receive joy from yoga and welcoming all students regardless of practice, style or age.”                                                                                                                         –Kelly

Retreats and Workshops

“The retreat was rejuvenating and beneficial on so many levels. The space was peaceful, the food was incredible, and the yoga was enlightening. I learned a lot about my body and my practice. I highly recommend Jenn’s yoga retreats!”                    —Lisa

Cranio and Yoga Therapy

“I knew Jenn understood my headaches the second her fingers touched my neck. She located the source of my discomfort right away, and I felt relief in a few minutes. She listened with compassion as we discussed the causes of such tension and she offered solutions that have helped me since. My head and neck feel better than they have in years, I am very grateful for Jenn’s talented touch and holistic approach.”                                –Myriam

“Jenn’s healing touch offered immediate relief from my daily migraine suffering which had lasted for over a month! In addition to the time and care she took with me during my cranio therapy session, Jenn left me with suggestions for relaxation, stretching, and massage exercises to assist me with ongoing tightness, stress, and pain management. I found it helpful to have my session in a quiet place that allowed me to focus intently on the therapy– much of which is about the ability to concentrate on the important connections between the mind and the physical.” –Sarah

Workshops Fall 2018

Yoga House LLC
11 West State st.
Pasadena, CA 91105

On Saturday, 27 October 2-5p, the workshop will focus on developing power in the core by engaging the inseam strength of adductors and Transverse Abdominis. If we don’t have a strong and resilient core we will over effort in the smaller muscles of the limbs, experience chronic tension, and cause wear and tear in the shoulder and in the hip joints. As well, rather than feeling grounded and ready for action, we will experience instability and a feeling of weakness, lacking the full strength we need to make powerful actions.

On Sunday, 28 October, 2-5p the workshop will focus on releasing chronic tension that has accrued in the outer body related to lack of core strength and stability. Particularly we will release neck and shoulders through SATYA moments and therapy rolling.

"Jenn's class has completely transformed my life. When I first started practicing with her a little over a year ago, I went to class once a week with the goal of becoming more flexible. Within months, I began following her around to different studios--and now my goal is to become a yoga instructor myself. Practicing with Jenn has improved my flexibility, strengthened my body and quieted my mind. She is an amazing teacher."--Erica

"Jenn's gift among others is her interest to "explain" and demonstrate the why's and how's of the posses and the practice of yoga. She is not one of those teachers who tells you to do a pose and then good luck in trying to figure it out. She tells you how to do the poses. She shows you how to do the poses. She tells you why you are doing the poses, and most importantly she walks around the room to make sure (as time allows) that her students are doing the poses correctly so as to gain the benefit from the practice and more importantly not harm yourself from doing something incorrectly. Jenn is an amazingly caring and kind person who has a passion for teaching yoga, and she is very good at what she does."                                     --Stan
