I am so excited to report that the awesome people over at MindBodyGreen asked to be one of the Wellness Experts.  I don’t even know what that means and definitely don’t consider myself to be an expert on anything, but I am totally honored to be able to contribute to such an incredible source for all things wellness and yoga related. Here are links to the recent posts that I have written for them.  Please spend some time on their site.  It is awesome!


While still an Indiana girl at heart, Jennifer is a yoga teacher in San Francisco who loves to laugh until it hurts, eat good food, travel to wherever the sun is shining, snuggle with her Labradoodle, Ruby, and spend as much time as possible with friends and family. She teaches atUrban Flow, a donation based studio that shares the practice of Bhatki Flow, the yoga of love and devotion.

    Hi Jennifer! I just read your post ‘Take my breath away’. I am so sorry to hear about your mother, but so glad that you have yoga to help you through the pain, the loss, the acceptance. Although I have not lost a loved one, I can clearly remember the day I turned up to yoga class, 2 days after my miscarriage. I sat on my mat, that place for just me and remember the last time I was here in this room was just prior to finding out I was pregnant. I dont recall how my breathing was. But I found great comfort in that 1hr and 15mins class. I loved the fact that I could escape my thoughts and feelings and simply be me, and express my emotions through my practice :) Thankyou for your post.
