Jennifer Treichel

  Who I am: A mountain hiking, beach bumming, nature loving, craft doing yogi.  

  What I teach:  Gentle, Hatha, Meditative, and Workout Classes

  My current classes and workshops include: I am currently a substitute teacher at Anahata.

 Why I teach:  I fell in love with yoga.  As a teacher I hope my students will benefit from their practice as I have.  I love the person I have  become, on and off the mat.  I hope students can take experiences they have with me into the world and apply them off the mat.

My classes are: I focus on themes that help students to feel good about themselves and their practice.  In my classes I offer time for pranayama, assisting in postures, keeping the body safe, maintaining anatomical alignment, and relaxation.  I make sure that students have time to feel and experience what is happening in the body through the practice.

What brought me to yoga:  I have always had a passion for good health, eating well and taking care of my body.  I was always trying new things to try and better myself and my health, and I stumbled upon yoga.

Favorite pose (and why):  My favorite pose can change from time to time but currently I love inversions.   I love being upside down.  I think it is amazing that our bodies can do such amazing things.

Off the mat, I: I love being outdoors.  Hiking, biking, or sitting and enjoying nature, on the beach or in the mountains.  I love spending time with my family, my friends and my best friend of all-my dog.  I love doing crafts, watching movies, and cooking.  I always seem to have my hands in something.
