I am trained in mat Pilates and certified in vinyasa yoga. I am in the middle of an aromatherapist certification, so the use of essential oils is a part of every session. I am particular about form and alignment but also focus on breath, energy and the subtle body. I love to delve into and help with people's goals and concerns.
I love seeing the stress melt off people's bodies and faces when we work together. I was drawn to yoga and essential oils to find balance in the hectic world we live in. It is a joy to see when students get closer to homeostasis, overall body balance.
I was referred to Jennie Epland when I was searching for a private yoga instructor. I was brand new to yoga and wanted to make sure I had some basic knowledge covered before I just jumped into a class setting. Jennie was great at getting me up to speed in a relaxed, hands-on setting. She is certainly knowledgeable about yoga and meditation, and she made me feel quite at ease as I entered a health regimine that was outside of my experience. I can highly recommend Jennie as a great instructor for improving ones overall health.
I want to know the students concerns and goals in order to see what path we will take. The first session will be basic to understand how the student moves or where they hold tension. Then we will move forwards trying to increase flexibility, relaxation, strength and understanding of their body

I have always been interested in body awareness and the connection between our emotion/psychology and our body. I began with pilates training and then teaching yoga called to me because of its spirituality and soul. Aromatherapy and yoga helped balance me so much that I learned everything I could about it (still learning) in order to teach and help individuals suffering with some sort of imbalance, emotionally, physically, spiritually....which is basically everyone.
I like working with beginners and also people that are fit but need to raise more awarness as to not injure themselves(i.e. gym junkies). I will work with all levels of students.
I love the yoga events at the Rubin Museum. They help unite people. I also love Wanderlust festivals. Traveling all over the country to unite people with Yoga and Meditation.
