Jenn Russel Bio
Jenn originally comes from a dance and circus background having performed for 14 years as a contemporary dancer, fire artiste and stilt walker.
She began practicing ashtanga yoga as a way to improve her technique and prevent the frequent injuries that are so common with professional dancers. She quickly began to experience the profound effect that yoga has not just on the body but on the mind. Her outlook began to change and she fell in love with this ‘moving meditation’.
Following the completion of an intensive teacher training at Himalaya Yoga Valley Goa, Jenn began regularly teaching ashtanga, power and hot yoga in her native Birmingham.
Over the past few years Jenn’s style has evolved to incorporate the flow and playfulness of her dance background, whilst staying true to the traditional teachings of yoga. Her freestyle vinyasa flow classes take you on a creative journey through traditional and modern postures, linked with creative transitions, uplifting music and some pretty funky balances and core work.
For Jenn, yoga is a way of life allowing her to foster a ‘can do’ attitude and approach life with a sense of joy and gratitude. She encourages her students to have fun exploring their infinite capabilities … after all what your body is allowing you to do is truly amazing!
