Jen Lafferty, RYT-500
Yoga has been an integral part of Jen's life since her first class in 2003. She has maintained a steady practice ever since and strives to incorporate Yoga principles and philosophy into her daily actions on and off the mat.
After completing her Bachelor of Commerce at the University of Alberta’s School of Business, Jen spent several years working at Edmonton’s top Marketing Agency, Incite. During that time she completed her 200 hour teacher training though World Conscious Yoga Family and in 2011 she was inspired to leave her executive position and journey to her teacher's ashram in India to complete the 500 Hour program. She has been fortunate to teach full time since.
Jen feels honoured to be able to share the practice of Yoga and Meditation with students of all levels - "WE ARE ALL
In her classes, expect a balance of heart pumping and body flowing movements with nourishing relaxation and soul inquisition. Jen loves to honour the relationship between asana (postures), pranayama (breath work) and meditation. She invites your to go within, listen to the cues of your own body’s wisdom and create a meditation in motion on the mat.
As a full time Mom to her daughter, Dalia, Jen spends much of her day exploring the beauty of her new home on Bowen Island - from a 2 year old’s perspective. While evenings are spent sipping tea and discussing the day with her husband, and soul mate, James. She loves travelling, reading a great book (or 4 at once!), chocolate and being with nature.
