Yoga is more than a physical exercise.
Yoga means “union” and leads to an integration
of mind and body.

Yoga Instructor

Private Tuition, Workshops, Classes & Teacher Training

Jennifer is a 2nd generation Yoga Instructor to B.K.S Iyengar as she was a direct apprentice of Senior Iyengar Yoga teacher Ali Dashti for fifteen years.

Ali Dashti is a 1st generation apprentice of B.K.S. Iyengar and an instructor at the Iyengar Institute (RIYMI) since 1986.

This direct apprenticeship under Ali, as well as her 5 years of study in New York City before she encountered Ali in Switzerland, is the depth of detail, art of seeing, and intensity she brings to her private tuition, classes, workshops and teacher training.

Welcome Beginners!

Whether you are a beginner or an advanced student, Jennifer meets all of her students exactly where they are, and brings to classes her extensive experience in the art of Yoga under Ali Dashti.

Her teachings focus on attention to breath, alignment, technique and sequences, as well as advanced application of props such as: bolsters, chairs, wall ropes, belts, blocks, etc. to assist students to improve the technical alignment of their poses for anatomical alignment, and to deepen their practice.

The proper use of props enables Jennifer’s students to dramatically improve the alignment of Yoga poses to provide the strongest medicine for spiritual alignment, mental and psychological peace, or to treat various conditions or illnesses.

The therapeutic and meditative system Jennifer teaches is continually and gradually progressive, involving asanas (poses) and pranayama (breath control), and sequences that are specifically designed to cultivate different bodily systems.

Jennifer teaches in Fairfax
(Marin County), California
