Jenny Mendez

Yoga was initially a form of therapy for Jenny. It provided her a means to counteract the stresses exerted upon her body by her professional dance career, which included a prolonged tenure with Pilobolus Dance Theater. As she kept on with her practice, she discovered in yoga a source of calm that empowered her to manage the hustle-and-bustle of modern life. Yoga also became for her, an endless wellspring of inspiration and a map to countless paths to self-discovery. It was a passion to share the physical, mental, and spiritual benefits of yoga that drove her to become a teacher. And so, in 2011 she attained her 200-DYRT teaching certification from Dharma Yoga Center. More recently, she achieved a Level II Hot Vinyasa teaching certification from The Barkan Method. Jenny is also certified in mat pilates and Gyrokinesis. Additionally, she has been shown the ways of absolute love as well as how to do a perfect updog and downdog by her furry four-legged flower child, Frida.

Jenny’s goal for each and every class is simple: She wants her students to walk out of her class feeling better than when they walked in, physically, mentally, and spiritually. Her classes draw from hatha, vinyasa and ashtanga yoga with a focus on alignment, mindful sequencing and inspirational music. She hopes her students will leave her class feeling refreshed, and ready to begin afresh.
