Jenny is a Lululemon Ambassador!
I am so proud to announce being selected as a Yoga Ambassador for the beautiful new Lululemon store on Madison Avenue. My heart has been warmed by the amazing team there, I go in sometimes just to be around there big, bright smiles and get hugs! Teaching the opening free yoga class there to live cello accompaniment was one of the teaching high points of my career so far. Look out for all the amazing events to come there, or just go and check out my picture on the wall!
Yoga on the Intrepid
Last month, I had the honor of teaching 60 amazing students a Yoga Class on the U.S.S Intrepid. The amazing room jutted out over the water so we felt that we were flying, with the beautiful hills of New Jersey across from us. We flowed through a Warrior 2 variation of Sun Salutations as the Sun shone bright on the water and the American flag waved in the wind ahead of us. As the light began to fade we moved towards deep low lunges and half splits, and a long sweet Compass pose. At sunset we took time in seated meditation, gazing out at the beauty before us, and as the Sun slipped behind the hills we also melted down into Savasana. It was incredibly powerful to be in meditation on peace and love in the deck of a ship that had seen so much war. Amazingly one of the students told me that his Grandfather had served on the ship in World War II, and here he was practicing Yoga on the same deck two generations later. It was also a very special night for me; three generations of my family came out to practice! All the proceeds were donated to Yoga Bear, an amazing organization that brings Yoga and Meditation to Cancer patients and survivors. Thank you so much to all who came!
Waterfall House Retreat
My fall retreat with New York Yoga at the beautiful Waterfall House in the Catskills was an incredible journey. Hours of Yoga a day in a renovated barn in the woods, soaking in the wood fire heated Hot Tub, and unbelievable meals by the amazing chef Paco. Such a great time was had by all that we’ve booked the house for a Summer Retreat in June. By then the weather will be warm enough to swim in the beautiful pool made by the natural Waterfall. If you’re interested in coming in June contact me and I’ll put you on our retreat mailing list!

Lotus Palm Thai Yoga Massage
My newest offering to student friends is this beautiful, ancient practice of receiving Yoga Practice as a meditative massage.
Thai Yoga developed in Thailand as the practice of Yoga Asana began to travel to the region from India. It is a form of partner yoga where the client receives a full body muscle opening as well as energy line activation. The practice is wonderful for those who cannot practice Yoga due to an injury and would like to receive the benefits in a passive way. It is also a very sweet way to deepen your Yoga practice and treat your body and soul!
Yoga for Runners
Pounding the pavement and flowing on the mat may be at opposite ends of the exercise spectrum, but together they can work in harmony to strengthen, stretch and balance the body and mind. Discover how yoga can enhance your performance by balancing joints, opening hips and hamstrings, strengthening arms and core, and increasing your VO2 Max (recently proven in a UC Davis study).
This workshop will also teach you how to customize any asana so that every yoga class can meet your specific needs as a runner. You will leave the last week of the workshop with a 20-minute warm up and cool down yoga sequence designed for your own personal training needs. Whether you are about to run your 10th marathon or just starting to lace up your shoes, a yoga pro or a novice, come join us in preparing for the fall marathon season.
