Jennifer has been a member of Tauranga Yoga Centre for more than 20 years. She enjoys the friendly community feel and the unique concept of ‘affordable yoga for all’.
Jennifer’s’ ‘life experiences’ have taught her that a regular yoga practice helps one cope with the adversities that life presents. Having this experience and some encouragement from other teachers at TYC is what inspired her to do her 200 Hour Yoga Teaching Certification. She feels heartened and inspired by the feedback from students, especially when they experience that ‘Aha!’ moment in a concept or pose.
Having practiced on a variety of ships sailing all around the world during her career as a mariner, Jennifer is able to adapt poses to suit a wide range of conditions and abilities and she feels teaching yoga has taken her own practice to a deeper level of understanding. ‘The teachers at TYC are so very supportive and it feels like it’s one big, helpful family here’, says Jennifer.
