My name is Jennifer Dambrosio but everyone calls me Jenn. I am a dynamic, energetic and fun loving Yoga Teacher looking to share the gift of Yoga with everyone! I have experience teaching various styles of yoga, sound healing, meditation and pranayama helping people relieve stress, find peace and connect to themselves deeply.
I started practicing Yoga after many years of suffering from insomnia, extreme internal and external stress, and feelings of anxiety. I started attending classes at my local Yoga studio where I made connections with teachers who guided me to the path of enlightenment, inner joy, and love. Through the practice of Yoga, Asana, Pranayama and Meditation, I began to experience feelings of bliss, and conscious awareness while obtaining deep states of relaxation and healing. I was quickly drawn to the profound connection between the mind, body, and spirit. Upon completion of my 200hr YTT through Fox Valley Yoga Teacher Training, I am a Yoga teacher!!
I became aware of the mind and body connection at an early age playing and coaching sports, but Yoga took this awareness a step further, awareness into the spirit. My favorite styles of Yoga are Restorative or Gentle/Slow Flow and Vinyasa with themes related to mystery, astrology, and ancient philosophical wisdom of Yoga poses. My teaching reflects a powerful and intelligent asana sequence by connecting to our inner intelligence and noticing the body communicate through subtle movements. By utilizing sound and natures elements, cultivating energy, and mindfully controlling and directing the breath, students naturally progress on and off the mat. I believe this approach offers the student a unique opportunity to learn more about Yoga, more about themselves, and enjoy the practice on a deeper, personal level.
Yoga has enhanced my daily life and has positively shaped my thoughts, feelings, and actions. I am honored to share this gift with you! Namaste.
My hobbies include traveling, adventure, and learning about history. I have visited over 20 countries and I have lived, worked, and volunteered in The United States, Africa, The Middle East and Europe. I enjoy trying new foods and cuisine, immersing into local communities, and spending time in the sun at the beach and exploring the mysteries of the jungle! My husband and I have 2 cats and a dog that love to cuddle!
