About Jennifer: Jennifer has over a decade of teaching experience and is a certified RYT 500 through Yoga Alliance. She has been at the forefront of Yin Yoga in Australia and was the first to offer Yin Teacher Training in Melbourne. Today Jennifer leads yoga teacher trainings, retreats, and workshops in Australia and internationally. Jennifer began her yoga studies with classical Hatha Yoga in a Sivananda ashram and developed further by exploring many styles, from the structure of Anusara to the liquid flow of Shiva Rea. Since 2009, Jennifer has been mentored by Yin Yoga founder Paul Grilley. She has additional Yin training with Sarah Powers and further study with leading yoga educator Leslie Kaminoff. She is also fearless in moving outside her discipline exploring martial arts, dance, and even Olympic Lifting! These days when she is not on her yoga mat you might find her perfecting her Clean and Jerk at CrossFit 3000. Inspired by her belief that movement is medicine, Jennifer set out to understand the anatomy and function of connective tissue. She trained with leading fascia researcher and educator Tom Myers (author of Anatomy Trains) and dissected a human cadaver under the instruction of pioneering researcher and “somanaut” Gil Hedley. Asked by an interviewer at Modern Yogi, “What does yoga mean to you?” Jennifer replied, “Through yoga, we get this amazing opportunity to study the universe by studying ourselves – all the principles, all the systems, all the dynamics of nature are right there inside us and the process of discovery is still really thrilling to me.”
