Jennefer O’Brien’s exploration of Yoga began 23 years ago while working at a non-profit arts fund in NYC , where she was inspired by Batoto Yetu – a man working passionately to change the lives of inner city children through expressive dance. Working with people through music and dance brought her joy and hope for children and adults everywhere to experience their inner light.
Jen’s fascination with the power of the union of body and mind led to a pursuit of exploring further yoga practices both on and off the mat which continues to this day. She has studied under various inspiring and encouraging well known teachers including Shiva Rea, Cyndi Lee, Elena Brower, Danny Paradise, Sarah Powers, Chelsea Roberts and multiple others.
The roots of her practice were first under Kripalu, Iyengar and Anusara teachers in NYC & CT.
Yoga Studies were held at NYC’s finest and original Yoga studios including Jiva Mukti, Vira, Laughing Lotus & Om.
Meditation studies under Parmath Niketan Teacher while living in Shanghai, China
TM Certified under Prudence Burns in Santa Rosa Beach, FL.
Jennefer shares with her students the excitement and gift of Dancing with The Divine through Yoga and the exploration of our selves by unraveling our inner butterfly from its cocoon.
Her classes have a balanced concentration of body / mind strengthening, hands on adjustments, stretching and reflexology.
