Jen was born in the UK, then lived in Spain after university. She moved to Singapore with the intention of staying for one or two years, only to meet her now-husband – it’s been nine years and counting…! Other than yoga, Jen loves being in nature, art, travelling, cycling, reading, writing and doodling.
Why am I a yogini?
After starting yoga as a way to rehab a badly broken arm in 2013, I started to realise the potential of a dedicated practice. I took a Traditional Hatha Yoga Teacher Training course in India in 2016, with the simple intention of deepening my own practice, but the experience and knowledge gained was so wonderful, that I decided to share what little I know with whoever was interested! I strongly believe that teaching yoga is about giving back to the community, and for that reason, donate a portion of my earnings to a different charity every quarter. Since I began teaching, I have worked with charities in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Tanzania, India and Australia. Yoga teaches me how to use my energy wisely, and provides rest and comfort when needed.
I enjoy teaching Hatha and Restorative Yoga, as well as specialised classes such as Yoga for Athletes. I incorporate mindful movement into many of my classes, as I believe it can lead to a greater understanding and application of more traditional yoga postures. Looking towards the future, I would like to pursue more specialised training in Yin yoga, yoga for children and massage therapy. I am also keen to work with children with learning difficulties and with people in prisons.
