Yoga reminds us that we are all whole and capable, that yoga is for everyBody. Join Jennifer as she promotes the notion of sustainable yoga for ALL.
Through this fun vinyasa flow class we will break down handstand into all its separate parts. Then, we will build it back up, through specific movements, partner work and muscle memory. For those who have trouble with handstands, this comprehensive workshop will make it accessible to everyone.

Jennifer Elliott ERYT-500, CYT, began her yoga journey almost 20 years ago. Since then she has been certified by LMU as a yoga therapist, co-developed 2 yoga schools and is a YogaWorks teacher trainer.
In addition to teaching Vinyasa and Yin style classes, she practices yoga therapy with private clients, including many professional athletes. This led her to the creation of “Yoga for Cyclists and Everyone Else,” a DVD to help cyclists and other athletes build core strength and flexibility.
Jennifer believes in the transformative power of yoga through physical practice, self-study and contemplation. It is through these methods that she blends her skills to create seamless and challenging classes, hoping to aide her students on their path to health and contentment. For those who are ready for the next step, she shares her knowledge through her workshops and teacher trainings.
