Jen Ford

Jenn began attending yoga classes after graduating college and moving from her home state of Florida to Manchester, CT around 2002. She enjoys taking all levels of classes and believes with each class she learns something new. When pregnant with her first child, she expanded her practice to prenatal yoga. After giving birth in 2010, Jenn struggled and eventually found her way back to her mat at mom and baby yoga. She credits this class and her teachers with pulling her into the light and allowing her to finally enjoy bonding with her new baby.
 
A year later she felt a calling to deepen her practice and enrolled in Samadhi Yoga Studio’s 200-hour YTT program. With no intention to teach, she was able to dive into the training without any expectations for herself and truly enjoy the powerful change it brought to her life and her practice. She completed the training in 2012 and continued with prenatal and postnatal yoga after the birth of her second child in 2013.
 
Jenn is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) through Yoga Alliance and is a Certified ChildLight Yoga Instructor and is currently enrolled in a 95-hour Children’s Yoga Teacher Training Program studying yoga and mindfulness for children of all ages. Now that her children are no longer babies or toddlers, she feels a strong pull to help other parents nurture themselves and connect to their children and babies through yoga.
