circleHi! I’m Jenna, founder of Body Love Yoga. I’m a Curvy Yoga certified yoga teacher, registered with the Yoga Alliance and a member of the Yoga Service Coalition.

I’m a creator and singer. I’m an educator. If the topic is within sexuality, self-care, health at every size, reproductive health – you name it, I’ve wrote the curriculum, made the sign-in sheets, and welcomed the group. I love creating brave spaces for people to learn and love. Now I’m able to add yoga to the list.

After many years of dieting, disordered eating and just putting off life I realized it was time to start embracing the body I was living with. I also wanted to inhabit my body, like really really be in my body. Yoga helped me embrace my body, connect with my body and repair my relationship with my body. Yoga changed my life and  I want to help you realize your worth, feel good in your body and find relaxation no matter your size by sharing yoga with you.

Body Love Yoga creates a welcoming, accessible, and inclusive studio environment for yogis of every size, shape, age & ability. As a body positive yoga class all bodies are good no matter size or ability. With this, yoga pose options are offered for each pose, along with guided gratitude for the body that brings you along your journey every day. Classes will give you a chance to connect with your body with kindness. One of the goals of Body Love Yoga intends on offering yoga instruction for those who feel abandoned by the yoga community, and to be a place where students can bring their full selves, without closeting any part of their identity or experience that they don’t want to hide. We focus on breathing, mindfulness, and strength-building in an intentional, supportive, and body-positive environment.
