Since 2004 Jennifer "Jen" Sparano has devoted herself to the formal study of yoga philosophy, pranayama (breath work), asana (postures), and meditation. She completed her teacher training at the Yoga Shala of Portland in 2006, and has since expanded her practice of classical vinyasa with Ramaswami Srivatsa (longest standing student of Shri T. Krishnamacharya), Shadow Yoga with Matt Huish, and Gravity & Grace with Peter Sterios. Jen teaches with a strong emphasis on breath, alignment, and finding the balance between strength and softness, force and ease. It is her intention to create a noncompetitive atmosphere where students can feel safe to expand their yoga while building a solid foundation for a life-long practice.
