Meridians. Theory. Practice.

Traditional Chinese Medicine can seem pretty complicated at first. There's meridians, reading your tongue, the five elements, and so much more...

Plus, if you practice or teach yoga it can be confusing how Traditional Chinese Medicine and the meridian system relate to the yoga system and postures.

But the truth is: you don't need to master Chinese Medicine to benefit from it. Whether you're a yoga student or a yoga teacher, whether you practice yin yoga or any active form of yoga, Chinese Medicine for Yoga will enrich your life, your yoga practice, and your teaching.

It's possible to go from confusion and overwhelm to having a really solid foundation to offer your students or bring into your own life.

"Jenn is very knowledgeable. She always put answers in the context of teaching which was appreciated. She acts as a great translator taking Chinese Medicine and putting it into words that make sense for a western yogi in a way that is immediately transferable to class design."

Find new ways to understand your body, your health, and your yoga practice.

As a registered Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner, herbalist, acupuncturist, and E-RYT 500 yoga and mindfulness teacher and student, I've been combining yoga and Chinese Medicine principles for over a decade.

During many of the yoga trainings I've offered, I've heard from students and teachers who want to incorporate Traditional Chinese Medicine into their yoga and their life. So I created this course: Chinese Medicine for Yoga.

Chinese Medicine for Yoga is designed to provide an overview of Traditional Chinese Medicine theory and the associated meridian system. In particular, Chinese Medicine provides a framework to understand the subtle or "energetic" body. Plus it can also help us to live a healthier life too!

"I am so enjoying working my through this program. Jennifer's teaching style is open, approachable, engaging and so very informative. With each segment, my knowledge of the methodology and history behind yin yoga and mindfulness deepens and grows. And what a wonderful service to provide this information in an online format, opening up the learning to those of us who are unable to attend a regular course. I would suggest her training wholeheartedly."

"I thought Jennifer's way of presenting was so precise and clear it was easy to follow and actually retain the knowledge. I loved her videos. I had never done an online training certification and wasn't sure how it would work but I actually love that I can go back and watch the videos at any time to review. I think I really benefited from the history of yin yoga as Jennifer explained it as well. And adding the meridians tied it all together for me in a way that made me fall in love with it. I would definitely recommend this course! I will continue to follow Jennifer and her videos and special classes. I love her teaching style. Her guided meditations really resonate with me. Not forcing or manipulating the breath but spending time exploring it and studying it was really helpful for me."
