A little about Jennifer...
Jennifer's yoga journey began over a decade ago when she took her first power Vinyasa class in 2007. She was recovering from a running injury and seeking an alternative way to manage stress and remain active. She had no idea that yoga would become so much more to her over the years than a regular workout routine. Class after class, Jennifer began to appreciate how yoga has the ability to create strength, flexibility and transformation of our mind, body and soul. It aligns us with gratitude for the present moment and inspires us to lead healthier more purposeful lives. Over the past 10 years, she has practiced many styles of yoga in various studios throughout the country. Jennifer completed her 200hr teacher certification with Leslee Clark of Well Heart Yoga School in Falmouth Maine in 2015 and Yoga Assistant Training with Sue Jones and Ray Mucci of Prana Power Yoga in Cambridge Massachusetts in 2011 and 2017. A Doctor of Physical Therapy practicing locally in Portland, Jennifer is a specialist in pelvic floor, oncology and perinatal rehabilitation. She utilizes her passion for yoga in a holistic approach to healing injury. Her teaching is authentic and playful drawing from her knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics to create a safe and intentional practice for her students. Jennifer believes yoga is truly a gift and feels incredibly grateful to share it with this community.
Sunset Yoga June 5th
Wednesday, June 5th 7:00-8:15pm
Join Theodora Medouris as she teaches a Vinyasa Flow yoga class right in our greenhouse patio, Relax among the flowers during the weeks of the new moon through the summer. BYOM (bring your own mat!)
"My yoga voyage began in my early twenties. At first, the narrative was more around what the practice could offer my body. Two key moments, thereafter, shifted my personal definition of yoga. It became an invitation to turn inward, to mend + find communion with all parts of the self.
The style of yoga I discovered + resonate with is Illumina’s Vinyasa Flow. This form offers the opportunity to creatively design classes around a unifying theme or intention. An Illumina class will feel like a journey with the purpose of illuminating some facet of what it means to be human. Mantra, moving metaphor, mudra (hand gestures), music, and meditation or pranayama (breath work) are weaved through + present in some form.
In March of 2019, I completed Illumina Yoga’s 200 hr. teacher training under the guiding light of the following mentors: Johanna Bell (founder), Kathleen Savoy, Melissa Landers + Maria Wagner. I am pleased to be offering this practice at Highland Farm this summer during the weeks of the new moon."
