Jen Daniels, RYT-200, has practiced yoga for over 15 years and completed her initial training in 2013 with Jennifer Prugh’s Joy of Yoga. Currently, Jen is completing her 500-hour training with Julie Rader-Wellman’s Mukti school. Additionally, Jen has certifications in Restorative yoga, Youth Yoga, and Flying Lotus (aerial yoga).
Through a strong asana practice, Jen has found that in deepening her connection to mind-body has transformed all areas of life. Yoga allows people to find the best version of themselves. By learning to pause before reacting and to breathe when life becomes stressful Jen has found improved personal and professional relationships as well as the ability to shift perspectives when needed.
In addition to creating safe and challenging sequences that are alignment focused, Jen loves inversions and arm balances. Her background in equestrian vaulting (www.americanvaulting.org) has created a distinct curiosity of advanced asanas. Through creating a strong and stable core, Jen believes that having the opportunity to play and enjoy the movement your body has to offer is one of the most beautiful aspects of the asana practice. Abundant transformation occurs when people become aware of their body through breath work and mindfulness.
Jen spent the last eight years learning and playing in Northern California. As a UCONN grad and a Hebron native, she is excited to be back home and ready to infuse some California sunshine into her CT students.
