Yoga with Jeni Ross
The yoga class will be an all-level slow-flow plus restorative style of yoga with time for meditation in savasana before and after. We will use meditation tools such as a body-scan to help us connect our bodies, minds, and breath, as well as breathing exercises to help calm the nervous system and help with anxiety and depression. This practice will be taught from a body-positive perspective, where all bodies are welcome.
About Jeni Ross
Jeni Ross is a Winnipeg based Yoga Instructor (Jeni Hailey Yoga), having completed 500hr certification through Moksha Yoga, as well as Girlvana training, which is a program geared toward youth and teen girls to help them develop a healthy and positive relationship with their bodies through yoga, journaling, and community building exercises. Her passion for health and wellness expands far beyond the physical aspects of health from a fitness perspective, and far beyond the physical benefits of a yoga practice. Jeni believes encouraging and maintaining a healthy connection between the body and mind is necessary for our well-being, and has focused a large part of her teaching in mindfulness and self-love/self-compassion, teaching from a body-positive perspective rather than just the poses.
Jeni's own personal experience, paired with a background in Sociology (which included courses such as Sociology of the Body and courses taught from a Feminist perspective), have helped to shape her perspective into one that promotes the idea all bodies are beautiful. All shapes, sizes, genders, ages, and races and abilities are deserving of love and self-compassion. Diversity is beautiful and Jeni's hope is to help others to feel that way as well.
