Ayurveda

” I greatly appreciate Jennifer’s thoroughness and willingness to explain the different processes as well as her reasoning for each suggestion she makes.  I am able to be extremely open about my feelings and bodily functions! Any questions I have are welcome, and contemplated over deeply. I feel seen, heard, and understood.  Not only does Jennifer offer her own suggestions, but I also feel she is sharing the knowledge, so that I can learn to trust my body, and develop the instincts to heal myself!” 

—Justine J.

Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old medical science born in India.

It’s also the science of life, meaning its approach to medicine is more about ensuring you have a full, juicy, balanced life rather than simply one free of uncomfortable symptoms or disease.
I first came to Ayurveda as a last-ditch effort to resolve chronic digestion issues that made my doctors (yes, plural) scratch their heads. But that doesn’t mean you have to feel unwell to start living the Ayurveda way. The elegance of the system comes from its prioritization of maintaining health and preventing disease, through daily routines that suit your individual needs. No matter how you’re feeling yesterday, today, or tomorrow, Ayurveda has a way to make sense of it, and many ways to ensure you’re feeling like the best version of you.
Because of its inherently personalized approach to health, the best way to begin is through one-on-one consultations. I am currently accepting new clients for virtual sessions.

“Jennifer is a skilled listener and gentle guide to the world of Ayurveda. I enjoyed our consultation and continue to refer to the detailed letter she provided, containing suggestions and resources for further research. I have used her recommendations to make a number of adjustments to my diet and lifestyle, all to good effect. I left both of our sessions feeling renewed and empowered by our work together. It was a pleasure.”

Yoga

Yoga means union.

Integrating yoga into all aspects of my life is at the core of my teaching philosophy.

Beginning a practice of yoga is a life-changing step toward improving your physical, mental, and physical well-being. As a multi-faceted discipline, yoga incorporates not only physical postures (or asanas), but myriad tools to direct the instabilities of the mind through breath work, meditation, and chanting. Each one of us has different needs, so the forms of yoga we choose to practice will be as unique as our beautiful souls. And each time we step into our practice—whether it’s on or off the mat—we have an opportunity to learn more about ourselves at the deepest levels, and honor the wisdom of the teacher within. As the sister science to yoga, Ayurveda is interwoven into all of my teachings, as a way to respect the energetic qualities of the time of year and the group of people in the class.

Yoga + Ayurveda

Known as the sister science of yoga, Ayurveda incorporates many yogic techniques—asana, pranayama, and meditation—in its medicine bag for creating balance in mind, body, and spirit. I incorporate Ayurveda into all of my teachings, as a way to respect the energetic qualities of the time of year and the group of people in the class.

Resources

Quality over Quantity.

Ensuring that what we put in and on our bodies is of the highest quality is essential to a healthy lifestyle. I’m scrupulous about buying wellness products from brands and companies that source and prepare their materials with concern for ethical treatment of the land and people involved in their making. Please find links to my favorite sources below.
