Jen grew up in the southwest suburbs of Chicago and competed competitively as a gymnast. She loved the challenge of always striving to learn new tricks and learning how to find balance with strength and flexibility. In college, she discovered yoga and found the same satisfaction as she did with gymnastics. Today Jen is a high school math teacher and a varsity girl’s gymnastics coach. She is passionate about teaching, whether it is numbers or backflips.
Throughout her career Jen has been practicing yoga, not only as a physical workout but as a means of holistic self-care and mental wellness. This passion led her to pursue a 200 hour yoga certificate at Yogaview in 2017. She wants to encourage others to find an escape from their busy lives through a dynamic and playful yoga practice. Besides yoga, Jen loves traveling, running, spending time with family and trying anything new.
