about jen g
Jen teaches creative and dynamic group classes that emphasize mindful alignment-based sequencing. She has been teaching yoga in New York City for 10 years, after having done her training back in 2005 at Laughing Lotus Yoga Center. Since then she has continued to develop her yoga practice and her teaching, having studied with Kula Yoga founder Schuyler Grant for the past 10 years and having completed advanced trainings with world-renown teachers Ana Forrest, founder of Forrest Yoga, and Annie Carpenter, founder of SmartFLOW yoga. Jen recently completed the Physiyoga Global training, a training that applies anatomy, biomechanics, physiology, and kinesiology to yoga asana, thus merging physical therapy principles with yoga for a more integrative practice. She has also completed a Prenatal Yoga training, and has worked with many women over the years, both in group and private settings, as they experience the amazing journey of pregnancy.
Jen also does a lot of one-on-one teaching with students to adapt the practice to students’ specific needs, whether a person is looking to have private yoga sessions for convenience, or because of an injury or other medical condition, or just wanting focused instruction that is specific to the person’s unique needs. Jen is extremely grateful that she works with so many amazing people and gets to share this practice that she loves so much.
