She connects with our Yoga Teacher Training students in a very authentic way. We’re very fortunate to have her as an integral part of the program.
Mudra is an ancient Sanskrit term meaning "gesture." We use mudras in yoga to cultivate a greater sense of awareness to certain energetic fields within the subtle body.
Mantra is a tool of the mind, a sound and a vibration that helps to keep your mind focused.
Practicing them can support your Yoga practice, or meditation by becoming more present and in tune with your inner-self.
What do you enjoy most about being a part of Twist Yoga Teacher Training?
Yoga comes out of an oral tradition in which the teaching was transmitted directly from teacher to student, I have had the privilege to learn from great teachers, and now it is my honor to keep this tradition alive by passing along the gifts that this ancestral practice has to offer.
How has yoga changed your life?
I wouldn't say that Yoga has changed my life, Yoga has shaped my mind, has soften my heart, and has awaken my path. OM

Everyone has their own reason for doing a yoga teacher training course .. maybe they want to make a career change, perhaps they want to be able to share their love of yoga with an underserved population, or maybe they just want to learn more. Here’s Jennifer’s reason .
Our Yoga Teacher Training students become family, lifelong friends, and guide our studio's most important questions. After each graduation class, we ask them a series of questions and learn what we can do better each time, and what was just right the way it was.
The learning how to teach was one of my favorite parts, which was experiencing the asanas from a different perspective than being a student in a yoga class. Prior to teacher training would attend a yoga class where I followed the steps from what the instructor was saying. It was a lovely experience and I learned a lot of yoga poses by attending different classes instructed by different teaches.
