About the Speaker
Jen first developed an interest in combining education and Yoga while completing a research project on the effects of Yoga on academic achievement. Decades later, after being introduced to the healing benefits of iRest® Yoga Nidra Meditation and completing an additional qualification in physical education, she is inspired to integrate learning, teaching, and well-being. Through ongoing training as well as being a Professional Assistant and Production Specialist with the iRest® Institute, she continues to deepen her practice, especially around trauma and culturally sensitive Yoga and meditation.
