Jenniferlyn is known affectionately by her students and friends as JL… And the words ‘JOY, LOVE, YOGA’ describe her head to toe.
Through yoga on the mat and in travel – JL’s goal is to provide her students with the opportunity to experience genuine joy, love, and connection (a.k.a. yoga). JL’s unique yoga teaching style is a creation all her own and an experience that all will benefit from. She is both flowing and grounded. Her classes are joyful, loving, spiritual, and inspiring. When you step away from one of her Vinyasa classes, you will feel more connected to yourself and the world around you. She provides loving support to newbies while continually challenging her regular practitioners to find greater depths in their practice.
JL first experienced yoga in 2000 when she was looking for a way to escape the daily stress from her job as a TV news producer in northern California. That was when yoga started to change her life. Overcome by the power and benefits of yoga in her own life, JL decided to move her career from the newsroom to the yoga mat in 2002. With curiosity and ambition, she followed her dream and began her training at Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health with an emphasis in Integrative Yoga Therapy. JL continued her training with Shiva Rea, embracing Vinyasa yoga. Through Vinyasa, she learned the powerful energizing and cleansing benefits of linking breath with movement.
JL is listed E-RYT with Yoga Alliance and has taught for more than 16 years in Seattle and the Bay Area. After more than 9 years leading international yoga retreats, this year, in her partnership with The Travel Yogi she will bring adventurers to Vietnam & Cambodia and Iceland. Her intimate getaways will change your life.
