Jenny’s classes are alignment focused in the Anusara tradition. Class starts off slow, focusing on the breath and alignment. Students work through challenging poses, holding positions to experience how the breath moves through the body, expanding the posture. Jenny is focused on taking the body only as far as it will go, and she has modifications for every level of student. The quiet conclusion of class is a chance to bring the awareness back to the breath, and explore the subtle changes in the physical and energetic bodies. In Jenny’s Classes, you can expect some type of meditation like visualization, mantra or mindfulness. She also incorporates pranayama, Mudra and sometimes she uses the Gong. Jenny will also draw inspiration from Kundalini Yoga teachings in her Hatha classes because of the profound work that can be done with the nervous system.
