PUT YOUR BODY
IN GOOD HANDS
Release, Relax, Breathe, Unwind
Jenny Loftus has been exploring the depths of yoga for 30 years and has been teaching for 20. Rooted in the Iyengar tradition, she has delved into many lineages of yoga to deepen her own practice and teaching. Guided by the principles of somatic movement and alignment, Jenny believes our greatest teacher lies within, and the job of a yoga teacher is not to tell you what to do but guide you to find the gifts found in presence and embodiment. Her classes have been described as nurturing and restorative while encouraging awareness of breath, functional strength, and alignment. She is passionate about anatomy and physiology, seeing the confluence of form, function, and breath as an exquisite and spiritual art we all embody. Jenny is a hospice nurse, and feels honored to support patients and families during this profound and challenging time in their lives. She is also a certified massage therapist, with advanced training in Craniosacral, Zen Shiatsu and Thai massage. The many facets of her work flow into a unified stream of supporting others, guiding her students, patients, and clients toward healing in mind, body and spirit.
"When you touch one thing with deep awareness,
you touch everything."
- Lao Tzu
