In this online video course, you'll have access to 4 quick tutorials and "how-tos" covering the basic yoga poses and drills found throughout this course. Each introductory video breaks down these poses and shows you drills that you can perform on your own or in addition to the full length sequences. The introductory videos help to insure you are properly performing some of the most basic poses.
Yoga is safe, but, like any other exercise, if you do not perform them with proper form and technique, it can lead to injury. Jennifer wants to help keep you safe and practicing well into your 80s.
Once you feel comfortable with the tutorials, you have OPTIONS! In this course, you have 4 full length sequences that are 30, 40, and (2) 60 minutes long. If time is your limiting factor, the 30 minute heart opening sequence is PERFECT. It is the most gentle out of all the full length sequences and is sure to leave you feeling energized and ready to take on the day! The 40 and 60 minute sequences are tough! They are designed to challenge you, and strengthen all those "mommy" areas like tummy, glutes, legs and arms. These are designed to challenge you so breaks are expected and encouraged.
Finally, you have access to 4 different drills / quick workouts that are targeting your abs, to help build your core and the center of your gravity back. Being a mama is hard work, don't you think it would be better if you were centered and strong in that center?
The goal for this course is to keep you challenged and engaged and coming back to your mat again and again.

Jennifer is an ERYT 500 and Authorized Ashtanga Yoga Teacher with a Yoga studio located in Chattanooga, TN called Thrive Yoga and Wellness.
She found yoga after a serious back injury left her unable to do the high impact physical activities she loved and in their place, found a super effective, super intense low impact practice that could challenge her mind and her body.
She loves to share her knowledge and experience as well as fitness inspiration with her students which you will see in each video.
When she is not teaching yoga, she is hanging with her family, hiking or playing in the garden.
