Hey there 👋 . I'm Jenn.
You might already know me if you've taken previous trainings with Yoga Detour. I'm the one usually working behind the scenes to ensure that everything we put out into the world runs smoothly.
This time around, however, I'm stepping out from the shadows to be a guide and curator for a program that I really believe in.
I've been into high intensity physical activity and movement all my life. It wasn't until around 2015, when my body started to shut down, that I was introduced to the practice of yoga. I've had wonderful teachers and practiced in incredible, welcoming studios. And yet...my emotional experiences on the mat have ranged from confusion and shame to terror and disorientation, despite there never being any outward threat.
Eventually, I started to wonder why these feelings were coming up so consistently. I began to investigate, turning to therapists, different trauma-informed experts and trainings and doing some pretty full-on introspection. That investigation has turned into a tremendous journey—one that's revealed not only all the things I wish I knew when I first started on this path in the yoga realm, but also the ways in which we as educators need to step up and into our power as community leaders.
Ready to join me?
