Jenna Maryn Mitchell, RYT 500 Hr, a student for 16 years and a teacher for 6 years. Jenna lives in the SF Bay area and teaches weekly public classes and workshops locally and retreats internationally. Jenna's teaching style is mindful, empowering, and light-hearted. She teaches energizing classes, that emphasize alignment; to teach students proper form, to build strength, increase flexibility, and to develop more functional movement patterns. Her classes also place great emphasis on the breath, to encourage focus, relieve stress and facility deeper states of meditation. Yoga has forever changed Jenna's life for the better and she is eternally grateful to share this ancient science of healing and self-discovery with others. 

“In today’s fast paced world I believe that the benefits of yoga can be experienced by everyone, regardless of age or physical ability. My goal is to help students get out of their heads, to feel powerful in their bodies, and to utilize breath to develop more peace and focus. Through the practice of yoga, I hope that students are empowered with the tools necessary to thrive, to find joy, and to realize their full human potential.”  -Jenna
