WHAT PEOPLE SAY
A beautiful week shared with wonderful warrior women and Jenn our amazing and inspiring teacher who really brought the magic to yoga ...creative vinyasa flows all themed on devotion, gratitude and letting go ... mixed together with beautiful poetry and philosophy and a kicking sound track ! I have a heart full of gratitude for Jenn for teaching me that everything experienced on my mat will strengthen me in life.She really did 'blow the doors off' !
I met Jenn some years ago and fell in love with her teaching on the first class. What a joyful, caring, brilliant teacher she is!!! I went to one of her retreats in Ibiza and it was the most magical, energizing yoga week. She plans everything with so much love and competence. The way she passes on her knowledge and brings her heart into the daily yoga practice and happy heathy lifestyle is inspiring. Thank you for sharing the good vibes
I was so impressed with the different ways Jenn used flow & warm up (by different I mean compared to other classes I’ve attended). I’ve had multiple back injuries and I work as a physiotherapist, so I suppose I have slightly better body awareness and anatomical knowledge than your average man on the street. I really appreciated the structure of the classes, it's beneficial to anyone, including people who are recovering or have suffered injuries. Jenn's classes were so much fun and all of this just combined into a very happy relaxed feeling after the class
