Born in Switzerland, I grew up in London, England, and began practising yoga 15 years ago after sustaining a repetitive strain injury from extended hours of computer work in the VFX industry (www.jennyb3d.com). In 2005 a work transfer opportunity brought me to New York City, where I balanced freelancing in film & TV with teaching yoga and meditation.
Yoga 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 was invited to teach the Introduction to Yoga weekly class there. I completed Intermediate level training in 2013. In 2015 I became an Integral certified meditation teacher. I am also qualified to teach Kidding Around Yoga for children, Prenatal Yoga, and Raja Yoga philosophy. I am registered RYT500 with the Yoga Alliance.
In June 2016 I moved to Rome, Italy, where I teach both yoga and English full-time. My yoga lessons are in Italian and English, integrating asana, pranayama, meditation and Yoga Nidra in every lesson. I hope to give each student a broader and deeper understanding of the possibilities of yoga and of themselves.
