Jen was drawn to yoga in 2005 as an alternative to modern dance after becoming pregnant with her son. She attended the first yoga studio in Shepherdstown, falling in love with yoga philosophy, meditation, and the asanas as taught by Shanti Saagar founders Judy Jenner & JiJi Beckett. She has maintained a self-practice ever since, and began a consistent practice with Christa Mastrangelo Joyce in 2010. In 2018, she completed Jala Yoga’s 200HR Teacher Training and has recently begun her journey as a Jala Yoga instructor. She truly believes that yoga, meditation, and connecting with nature is the simplest path to a joyful life — not always, the easiest, but definitely the simplest.
Jen lives in Leetown, WV with her son Sam, her husband Patrick, and their two dogs. She is founder of Eden Design, a design & marketing firm, loves music, and enjoys long hikes and trail-runs and post-run IPA’s. She is extremely grateful to all of the strong women & yogis in her life and is humbled to share this yogic lineage with others.
