I met Jenn in an advanced yoga teacher training program. The first time she led our group in a practice, her presence and language made me feel inspired, safe, and strong. Shortly after our teacher training ended, I felt a need to change up my “movement strategy” by adding strength training to compliment my yoga practice. But I didn’t have the motivation to go to the gym, and I didn’t feel as though I had the knowledge to develop a strength training routine on my own. I decided to invest in 4 sessions with Jenn. From these sessions, I wanted to learn effective ways to work out at home. I got this. But I also got so, so much more.
Jenn had me get real about what my goals are - and not specifically fitness goals - in our first weeks together. I quickly realized how uncomfortable and frustrated I felt setting goals for myself. This led me to an unexpected deep dive into self study (in yoga, we call this “Svadhyaya”) in addition to the awesome at home workouts Jenn helped me establish.
My initial 4 sessions to simply learn customized workouts to do at home has evolved into 4 months (and going!) of working with Jenn once a week. I have a home workout routine that she helped me build, which I’m committed to twice a week. On the days where getting my workout in feels particularly impossible, I text Jenn after I get it done - the accountability she provides and encouragement she lends is invaluable in helping me stick to it. I love that Jenn sees the big picture, and each training session builds upon the weeks before. Jenn meets you exactly where you are in a fully encouraging and non-intimidating way. I can honestly and sincerely say that working with Jenn has helped change my lifestyle for the better. Sessions with Jenn are a true embodiment of her tagline, “training the mind and body as one.” Thank you, Jenn!
