Aerial Yoga

Email Jennifer:

Born and raised on the island of Maui, Hawai’i, Jenny moved to Portland in 2008. After completing her Bachelor of Science degree in Social Work and Psychology and studying Studio Arts, Jenny’s heart for mindful movement was sparked through Anti-Gravity Yoga at the former Gravitas Center for Structural Movement. Jenny had the immense privilege to study and train under the talented Shakti Sharon Hanson and Teri Poch in Anti-Gravity Yoga, and also became certified in Fly Gym® Aerial Yoga and Fitness.

Jenny seeks to create a safe place to foster each student’s journey in tending to the mind and body. She aims to craft a beautiful collaboration between her background in Human Development and Psychology with her love for aerial yoga, bringing a therapeutic lens to mind and movement. With a deep love and admiration for the practice, Jenny invites her students to join her in play and exploration; to allow themselves to find what their mind and body need with each day.

Jennifer’s Testimonials

"I have been attending Jenny's aerial yoga classes for several months and find that I look forward to each class. Jenny is able to interpret the aerial practice in a new way so that I am forced to push myself beyond my comfort zone. Her classes are fun and at the end she always offers light massage during savasana to those who want it. I always want it. I highly recommend her class."
~Dina Dickerson

"To start, let me just say Jenny is a wonderful instructor.

She is calm, mindful but also not afraid to push more seasoned students to new levels.

Every class with Jenny is an adventure. There is some, but not a lot of repeat in her classes. As a student, this forces you to be present and listen, which I love. I find Jenny's classes fun, relaxing and challenging all at once. By the end of a session, I have a sense of calm focus which allows me to move easily into the next phase of the day.

Originally I was at the Gravitas studio with Teri Poch for 2 years.

Moving to a new studio was hard, but I'm happy that Jenny is an instructor at Shakti House. The transition has been wonderful."
