My yoga journey started many moons ago when my Mom suggested my sister and I take a class.  ?I don't remember much about the class itself, but I do recall speaking enthusiastically about it afterward.  I also remember the smell of the satsuma oil that was burned throughout the class, and the various intrigues of my teacher that day, who wore endless strings of beads around her neck and had glittery, bright eyes and really wild curly hair.  Most strikingly, I felt calm.  I was used to feeling like my mind was running in a million different directions, but for the rest of that day I felt immensely focused, present and peaceful.   Though I was intrigued, yoga didn't become a regular part of my life until I started taking classes with the wonderful Scott Campbell at UNC-Chapel Hill (thank you Scott!).  Since moving to New York City in 2010, I've taken classes in Ashtanga, Hatha, Vinyasa, Power Vinyasa, Kundalini, Restorative, Bikram, Strala, Chakra, Iyengar, Yin and Jivamukti yoga with many different teachers at many different studios.  This past fall I took the next step in my yoga journey by completing my 200-hour Yoga Alliance teaching certification at The Giving Tree Yoga Studio in Astoria, Queens.  As a lifelong athlete, I understand how intimidating it can be to walk into a yoga class.  I also know firsthand the tremendous benefits the athletic body can glean from a regular yoga practice when it's done safely.  My goal as a teacher is to create an environment where anyone can feel good about practicing regardless of their level of strength or flexibility.  The great thing about yoga is that there is always a new pose to master, a deeper level of awareness to cultivate.  Rest assured, I am learning as much from you as you are from me.  I look forward to sharing this joyful and rejuvenating practice with you.  ?????? namaste.-Jennifer Spillane
