Having grown up in London, England, I began practising yoga 13 years ago after sustaining a repetitive strain injury from extended hours of computer work in the VFX industry (www.jennyb3d.com).  A work transfer opportunity brought me to New York City 11 years ago, where until recently I balanced freelance work in film & TV with teaching yoga and meditation. 

My practice has brought me balance, strength, adaptability and ease when dealing with stress. Wishing to pass on these powerful tools, I completed my basic teacher training at the Integral Yoga Institute in New York in 2011, and intermediate level training in 2013.  In 2015 I also became an Integral certified meditation teacher.

In June 2016 I moved to Rome, Italy, where I teach both yoga and English full-time. I'm still learning Italian and my yoga lessons are a mix between Italian and English. Integrating asana, pranayama, meditation and yoga nidra in every lesson, I hope to give the student a broader and deeper understanding of the possibilities of yoga and of themselves.
