Jivamukti Yoga:
An inclusive class for all levels of practitioner that incorporates the five tenets of Jivamukti yoga: Shastra (scripture), Bhakti (devotion), Ahimsa (non-harming), Nada (music), Dhyana (meditation). The safe and well rounded Vinyasa sequences include the 14 points of Jivamukti yoga: Vinyasa, side bends, twisting, inversions, Bhujangasana/Shalabhasana, Dhanurasana/Ustrasana, Urdhva Dhanurasana, Paschimottanasana, Purvottanasana/table-top/half wheel, full wheel, Sarvangasana/Halasana or Viparita Karani, Matsyasana or Supta Baddha Konasana, Shavasana, Meditation, and a spiritual teaching drawn from the focus of the month. The world renowned style includes chanting, hands on assists, and classical yoga teachings relevant to one's life on and off the mat.

Asana Breakdown:
A workshop-style series in which we breakdown poses into their basic elements, providing more information and experience, exploring variations and use of props. Each class is focused on a series of asanas (e.g. standing, twists, forward folds etc.). Perfect for beginners or seasoned practitioners who want to go deeper into their practice, their teaching skills, and focus on alignment.

Soul filled power hour:
A devotional 60 minute express class in which we pay close attention to each counted breath and move through a strict vinyasa. With fewer pose instructions and alignment cues, the student is free to focus purely on uniting their movement and breath. Also ideal for students who want to cover all elements of a dynamic, rigorous yogic practice in a single hour-long class.

Jenna Faith was always searching for purpose and a way to devote her life to the service of others. She had practiced yoga as a teenager, but in 2012 John Smrtic introduced her to the Jivamukti method. Enchanted by Jivamukti’s focus on spirituality and activism, Jenna completed her teacher training under the guidance of founders Sharon Gannon and David Life in May 2013. She then apprenticed with advanced certified mentor Jessica Stickler, completing 800 hour certification in May 2014. Jenna is grateful to have studied with these and other master teachers who have positively influenced and supported her.

Many of her teaching techniques have been gleaned from study and classes with Jessica Stickler and Jules Febre, while the music and mood of John Smrtic’s classes have always enlivened her spirit. Jenna’s personal experience living with chronic pain, fibromyalgia and joint hyper-mobility deeply inform her practice and teaching, bringing a level of awareness, sensitivity and safety to her classes. Her complex, dynamically sequenced classes are set to meticulously crafted, uplifting musical soundtracks that deepen the inward experience of yogic union.

Jenna’s classes, workshops and private sessions are always personalized for any level of practitioner, with special attention to their needs, alignment, and the growth of the student’s personal practice. Jenna has also enjoyed several opportunities to teach and assist workshops at festivals internationally, most recently at Prague Spirit Festival and Bhakti Fest. She lives part of the year in the motherland of India, staying deeply connected to her practice, devotion and the core of yoga teachings.
