Meet your Facilitators
Jenna knew from a young age that she wanted her career to be driven by her passions. After art school in Chicago and a brief stint in advertising, she left graphic design to pursue yoga and fitness and never looked back. Since 2007, she has been leading private and group yoga and fitness classes, facilitating yoga teacher trainings, managing yoga studios, mentoring instructors, and holding retreats.
Jenna’s classes are safe yet challenging, fun yet introspective, balanced yet adventurous. She is dedicated to teaching the practice of yoga as a gateway to living life in its most expressive form. Jenna has a friendly and approachable demeanor that aids her students in the more challenging moments of class. Her intention is to continuously invite her students to explore the depths of their bodies and the layers of their souls.
Jenna currently resides in Traverse City after spending 18 years in Chicago and Southern California. While her full time job is in the corporate side of boutique fitness, her heart will always be guided by her love for yoga and undying pursuit to live life to its fullest. When not teaching, you can find her on the trails, cooking or baking, paddleboarding, and soaking up the NoMi life.
Tina is an osteopathic physician and yoga teacher from Michigan. She found yoga when searching for a way to balance running and teaching group fitness classes. As for many others, her primary interest was the physical application of yoga. However, she soon realized the profound impact yoga had on her overall sense of well-being and peace. Her initial exposure was in an ashtanga and power vinyasa studio. Vigorous practices are still enjoyed, but has grown to deeply appreciate restorative and gentle classes as well.
Tina has taught movement for twenty years and yoga for twelve, after completing her teacher training at Hilltop Yoga in Lansing. At the time, she also had begun her medical residency. Her yoga practice taught her the importance of mindfulness in finding stillness and reducing stress.
Seeing the role yoga played in her own life, Tina is grateful to share this practice with others. Her background as a family physician and neuromusculoskeletal specialist lends itself to a unique perspective in the yoga studio.
Classes with Tina build of sense of community, and she fosters a nurturing and welcoming environment. Connecting to your strength, finding stillness, and increasing your self-care practices are goals of her practice.
