For over 20 years, Jenn has delved deeply into numerous yoga lineages, philosophies, and therapeutic modalities. She has taken thousands of hours of advanced training in Ashtanga Yoga, Anusara Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Thai Yoga Massage, Touch Skills for Somatic Experiencing Therapists and Trauma Informed Yoga. Jenn is deeply grateful for all of the teachers that have contributed to her path.

ADJUNCT FACULTY: AMANDA GREEN

Amanda Green Amanda took her first yoga class in 2001 and has been practicing ever since. She met her teacher and mentor, Chase Bossart, in 2011 and her yoga study expanded to embrace the broader teachings of yoga including Patañjali’s Yoga Sūtras, prāṇāyāma, meditation and vedic chant and has specialized training in the practical application of the tools of yoga as therapy in the tradition of T.K.V. Desikachar. Amanda teaches the sūtras with clear language, deep listening, and a sense of humor. She candidly relates yogic concepts to her life experiences as a mom, partner, teacher, artist, and blogger and she encourages her students to do the same. In this way, yoga practice becomes a deeply personal journey and a means to live a fulfilling and purposeful life.

Amanda has over 15 years of personal yoga practice, 2,000+ teaching hours and 1,300 hours of yoga training. Amanda’s teaching is geared towards one-on-one, individualized practices with a therapeutic emphasis. She has specialized training in yoga as therapy and completes the YATNA yoga therapy certification program in 2017.

ADJUNCT FACULTY: SHEILA SINGH

Sheila Singh Sheila's formal studies began with engineering, yet her life calling led Sheila to delve into the science of the mind, and the mysteries and wisdom of the heart and Being. Yoga training was the catalyst for immersing in the practice of meditation, study of nondual philosophy and living life wholeheartedly. With many teachers and guides along the way, yoga and meditation have helped her to meet life with widening acceptance, compassion, curiosity and deepening faith. Weaved together, these methods and teachings are a transformative tool that can uncover the practitioner’s inner wisdom, wholeness and underlying ease of Being. It gives Sheila great joy to be able to share with others. Though often taking root on the cushion, the heart of her practice arises amidst the day, helping Sheila to meet the challenges and pleasures of life and family
