Hi, I’m Jenn - I have my B.S in Education with an emphasis in special education, and I've taken
that teaching background and shifted my focus to teaching practices of resilience as a
trauma-centered yoga and meditation teacher, reiki master, and a sound healing
I’m deeply committed to helping you find focus, resilience and balance in your
life, whether you're just building your skillset in school, or in a high stress profession.
I help those dealing with intrusive thoughts, sleep disruption and anxiety find ways to move through
discomfort and thrive (in particular, front line workers, vets & first responders). I'm a wife to a
retired SWAT S/SGT (20+years of service) and I understand the challenges & stress that come
along with being married to someone who selflessly serves the community. I know the culture, the toll it takes on the entire family, and I know methods to help resolve those after effects. All of these practices are non-pharmaceutical solutions, to a deep need for ease in the body.
Everyone experiences sensation differently in their bodies. I work with all my students to meet them exactly where they are, guide them through meditation, and explore those sensations on a physical, mental and emotional level for healing. After our session, you will have an understanding of the framework to use in your life, going forward. If you have tried meditation before and feel like you "couldn't meditate"... then we definitely need a session!
