A little about Jennifer…

Jennifer’s yoga journey began over a decade ago when she took her first power Vinyasa class in 2007. She was recovering from a running injury and seeking an alternative way to manage stress and remain active. She had no idea that yoga would become so much more to her over the years than a regular workout routine. Class after class, Jennifer began to appreciate how yoga has the ability to create strength, flexibility and transformation of our mind, body and soul. It aligns us with gratitude for the present moment and inspires us to lead healthier more purposeful lives. Over the past 10 years, she has practiced many styles of yoga in various studios throughout the country. Jennifer completed her 200hr teacher certification with Leslee Clark of Well Heart Yoga School in Falmouth Maine in 2015 and Yoga Assistant Training with Sue Jones and Ray Mucci of Prana Power Yoga in Cambridge Massachusetts in 2011 and 2017. A Doctor of Physical Therapy practicing locally in Portland, Jennifer is a specialist in pelvic floor, oncology and perinatal rehabilitation. She utilizes her passion for yoga in a holistic approach to healing injury. Her teaching is authentic and playful drawing from her knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics to create a safe and intentional practice for her students. Jennifer believes yoga is truly a gift and feels incredibly grateful to share it with this community.

About Jen: Jen found her passion for yoga through the back door. With a background in tae kwon do and meditation, she began her journey five years ago with Hatha yoga and expanded her way into power vinyasa. She received her 200 hour Live Love Teach certification in winter 2014. In addition, she has trained with Betty Riaz for her SPA certification. In her practice, she creates a restorative yet strong and ever evolving flow. She is continuously learning as a teacher and on her mat as a student. She also has a passion for locally sourced foods from her lengthy career with Whole Foods Market. Beyond teaching, she has numerous experiences providing home cooked meals for Stil Studio’s annual yoga retreats for up to twenty-five guests. When she’s not on her mat you can find her in the kitchen whipping up delicious goods or outside traveling this beautiful world with her significant other and dog, Autumn.

About Sarah: When Sarah took her first yoga class in 2009, she was inspired by the freedom and dance-like quality she was able to find on the mat; in 2012 she was hit by a car while crossing the street, and then the real practice began. Her asana practice put on hold, her focus shifted to mindfulness, meditation, and the philosophical teachings of the yoga practice.After completing Stil Studio’s 200 hour Fluid Yoga Training in 2013, Sarah began teaching a mindful, fun, spirited flow that fuses philosophy, asana, and music. She considers herself a yoga DJ as much as she does a yoga teacher, and you can count on fun, inspiring music as you flow through class. Sarah’s classes leave the body feeling open, and encourage mindfulness both on and off the mat through breath and body awareness. Sarah completed her 500 hour Fluid Yoga teacher training at Stil Studio with Kevan Gale and Betty Riaz in Spring 2015. She is certified in Thai Yoga Massage Level 1, Yin Yoga and Meditation, as well as in SPA Yoga® teaching with Betty Riaz.
