LEAD TEACHER: JENN WOOTEN
Jenn has been teaching and living yoga since 2004. Her educational background is in physiology and neurobiology, and her teaching style focuses on grounding and embodying through asana, nervous system regulation, and moving from stress and trauma through to resilience. Her gifts as a teacher and guide are her deep compassion, as well as her ability to connect somatically and emotionally with her students to help them attune to the wisdom of their own bodies.
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. She is the co-teacher of the Waking Yoga Teacher Training and The Art of Holding Space Mentorship Program with Angie Knight. Guiding students in how to practice yoga as a pathway for embodiment, healing and awakening is the core of her teaching.
LEAD TEACHER: ANGIE KNIGHT
Angie Knight has studied yoga, shamanism, and other healing arts for over 16 years. She has taught thousands of public and private yoga classes and leads workshops, mentorships, trainings and retreats, both nationally and internationally. She has studied various yoga lineages, but her main teacher has been her own practice, personal experience and life itself. She considers herself a student of life and has learned to embrace what is happening in the moment as the ultimate guide to awakened living. Her teaching is loving, compassionate, and empowering and she teaches from a place of connection rather than authority.
For years, she has coached and supported others in transforming their pain into power, trusting their own inner guidance, and living an authentic life. Angie has spent 10 years developing her own unique way of teaching yoga and holding space for others. She has had the honor of learning from hundreds of different teachers in her 17 years of yoga practice. Her teaching background is a mixture of Vinyasa Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, and Shamanic/Energy Healing. Angie’s skill lies in combining yoga and healing to facilitate transformation in her students, helping them remember their inherent wholeness and discover what makes them come alive.
