Jennifer Smith is a yoga teacher dedicated to teaching the yogic lifestyle through helping her students appreciate the process and not just the goal.

She teaches with a tangible energy and ingenuity that compels her students to trust the process and find the best in themselves. She firmly believes in using perseverance, honesty, and universal morality to help guide students to their path to true happiness. Jennifer’s approach to teaching has been formed by her deep interest in medicine. Graduating from Monmouth University with a double degree in Biology and Psychology, she realized that western medicine could only offer so much; she then became dedicated to finding other alternatives. She studied Hatha Yoga and Ayurveda in Rishikesh, India then also concentrated on Ashtanga under Caroline Klebl. Her teaching style blends yogic therapy, with mindful sequencing and correct alignment while focusing on the breath to create a moving meditation. Her teaching and energy create a refuge for her students while pushing them to grow beyond their expectations. Her teaching styles include hatha, Ashtanga, children’s, vinyasa flow, power, restorative, yin, meditation, and pranayama. With practice, we can shed the layers of our egos to let our true selves shine!
