Jennesis Yoga emphasizes the value of a beginner’s mindset during every Yoga, Qigong, Meditation, and Personal Training practice. Connecting our body through breath and movement decreases stress and tension. Noticing daily how we feel and move differently generates a calmer approach to life even though there may be chaos around us.
Learn gentle ways to manage emotions, develop confidence, increase flexibility, improve balance, become stronger, and heal emotional barriers. Students participate virtually or in person, it is the same for private sessions.
Jennesis Yoga, LLC was founded by Jennifer Worhle in February 2020, two (2) week before COVID-19 caused many businesses to close their doors. There are two (2) reasons Jennesis Yoga came into fruition, working with the Veteran community and the loss of a loved one due to Parkinsons. "The power of movement and breath always intrigued me, each practice feels new regardless of repetition. Healing ourselves in this way encourages unity with nature" states Jennifer. Jennifer is a 200-hr RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) certified in Yoga and Qigong, and is also a Personal Trainer (PT). For over 20 years the practice of meditation, pranayama (breathing techniques), physical fitness, Yoga, and Qigong practices have positively impacted her, and her student's lives.
Jennifer volunteers with Yoga 4 Caregivers as a Yin Yoga and Qigong Teacher and The Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) as Connecticut’s Employer Outreach Director. She is a Workforce Development Trainer, and a Fitness Specialist/Personal Trainer at the Mandell JCC Fitness Center at Saint Francis in Hartford, CT. In Jennifer's free time she enjoys hiking, the beach, reading, cooking, and spending time with family and friends.
