Dancing Earth Yoga For Every Body

Contact UsSchedule

I am a certified and insured teacher with 18 years experience in sharing yoga with prenatal women, children, beginner and intermediate students and seniors. My practice began while in college where I was introduced to Iyengar Yoga by Dean Lerner. My interest in yoga grew and my desire to help people too. I continued to practice and started professional training in 1998 and continue my training when possible. I study with teachers in a variety of traditions, and use personal discovery and healing to bring safe and creative yoga to others.

Jen Champion leads traditional hatha yoga classes designed to make yoga accessible to every body. Asana, pranayama, and meditation are at the seat of her practice and classes. Jen brings soothing qualities to her inspiring classes with her genuine caring attitude. She encourages students to form postures with proper alignment and smooth coordination of breath and movement. Jen enjoys sharing yoga and encouraging people to live in peace and grace on and off the mat.

Jen has been teaching yoga for 18 years with a specialty for assisting boomers and seniors in chair yoga. She led biweekly classes for 15 years at a retirement home and shared yoga with a variety of people throughout   venues in Central PA and East Coast music festivals.

She received her 200 hour Certification at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health https://kripalu.org/ in 2002. She continues to study and plans to attain her 500 hour studies and certification at https://www.himalayaninstitute.org/. Jen studied Iyengar and Tri Yoga, Trance Dance with Shiva Rea and completed workshops in Mediation, Yoga Nidra, and Transformational Living.

Jen, a true team member, volunteered as elected president and director for 15 years for HHWA  http://hhwa.org/, a non profit wellness group and the Natural Connection, a center she helped establish in Huntingdon, PA.

Jen cares for her daughter Sage and her two golden lab-retriever dogs and the family adopted stray kitten. Jen and her husband Duane incorporate a gong along with crystal and metal bowls into their practices, classes and workshops. She enjoys growing herbs, hiking amongst waterfalls and hot springs and embracing the gifts of life in beautiful Oregon.

Testimonials

“I really enjoyed yoga with Jen.  I wish she was still here.  I just liked how she taught the class.  She made it easy to learn and enjoy yoga.  I just enjoyed her too.”

Vickie McKinney

Student,

“I was privileged to know Jen as her vision of a Health and Wellness Center evolved and came into being not only as a Center for yoga in our small town of Huntingdon, but also for holistic health. Jen is a gifted yoga teacher whose expertise, sensitivity and kindness lead others to explore and experience the many benefits of yoga.” 

Sue Deobil

Student,

“With my spinal disabilities I was afraid to do yoga, but Jen took special efforts to ensure that I learned ways to do things so that they wouldn’t hurt my condition.  And once I could learn to stretch and do yoga exercises, the benefits were amazing.  The pain and limitations became less of an issue for me.  Today, I firmly believe that she helped me to have a better life through her teaching of yoga.  She is an amazing teacher.”
