“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.”

“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.
