“You know that girl who walks into any room
And lights it up, that’s what she does, baby, that’s you.”
These words are the opening lyrics of a Hunter Brother’s song called Silver Lining. This song is the best way to describe Jen.
Jen is a breath of fresh air, full of positivity and she would sacrifice anything to help another…
“ Draw in a slow positive breath, and let go of everything that you do not need.”
If you have ever taken a yoga class with Jen, you will surely be familiar with the above saying. Her voice is calm and relaxing, you can’t help but let yourself be drawn into the slow methodical voice that will put you at ease. After one yoga session you will surely come back for more.
This amazing mother and wife of three has established relationships within our community such as; local schools to provide indoor yoga in the gym and outdoor yoga during the pandemic, the Alzheimer’s society (chair yoga) as well as Hiawatha First Nations (virtual yoga & virtual chair yoga). Each task she takes on is completed with all of her being. When you hire Jen, she gives it her all and you will surely be inspired.
Jen is an advocate for leading by example, staying active and maker of delicious healthy nutritional choices. She takes long walks daily in nature and is often joined by friends which then changes the name from nature walk to “therapy walk” as there is so much wisdom passed between the women. After having such a walk you leave feeling refreshed and ready to take on any task that the day brings.
Whether you are taking part in one of Jen’s yoga classes or are graced with her presence you are sure to feel inspired.
