Jenn Thomas has long had a passion for unearthing what lies beneath the surface and uncanny ability to get to the heart of the matter. Whether you take her dynamic yang or her more reflective yin classes, her clear and tender–hearted encouragement will help you explore the patterns and habits of your own life with more insight. Jenn has been practicing and studying yoga for over 30 years. She received her 200–hour certification in RI with Tom Gillette, became a leader for Off the Mat/Into the World with Seane Corn, and has studied & practiced with Sarah Powers’ Insight Yoga Institute, a graduate–level training with many western master teachers in Buddhist Psychology for the past decade.
Jenn continues to be influenced by her ongoing work with her core teacher Jennifer Welwood as well as her continuing study of the intersection of IFS Therapy, Unconditional Presence & Mindfulness practices. As well, Jenn is committed to Community service, education & leadership in developing avenues to extend and make these wisdom traditions/teachings accessible for all population. Adding to the mix Jenn is a longtime artist and teacher (painting and glass), a two–time small business owner, and a spiritual life coach. She is developing and deepening practices that integrate yoga, Buddhism, Taoist Philosophy, 5 Element Theory and spiritual psychology. In yoga class, Jenn invites a strong awareness of being, present moment connection, as well as deep attention to the body and its needs. All Practice, both stillness or movement oriented ignites prana, balances yin and yang energies, and may bring forth the stillness and joy within. Jenn’s way of weaving language and poetry into the fabric of each class draws us into the heart of who we truly are and the beauty of being alive.
