What others have said about working with Jen
Jennifer’s prenatal yoga series at Pranashanti was OMazing! She took us through both gentle and strength building sequences, connected us to baby, as well as created a sense of community with the rest of the expectant women in the class. I loved the combination of asana, yoga nidra, guided meditations and creative drawing to help connect more to my pregnancy, baby, and birth.
