Jen first practiced yoga in 2003, when a friend working on yoga teacher certification encouraged her to stop in and join a free class. The combination of movement, breath, and focused attention resonated with Jen, who was learning to blow glass at the same time. In yoga, she found a personal expression of the same opposing forces she experienced in the glass studio: heating and cooling, stability and fluidity, control and surrender, effort and effortlessness. Jen embraced and nurtured a personal yoga practice for the next 12 years, which then blossomed into a desire to pursue yoga more deeply in All That Matters’ Pranotthan School of Yoga Teacher Training. She received her 200-hour yoga teacher certification in 2016.
Jen’s teaching style is ultimately an amalgamation all her previous teachers’ styles, combining Hatha and Vinyasa as well as techniques that have emerged from her own practice, and promoting stability while encouraging fluidity. She encourages breath linked with movement, as well as an awareness of the heart as the center of one’s own solar system.
Jennifer Nauck instructs the following:
Yoga I is ideal for students new to yoga as well as seasoned practitioners looking to reconnect with the foundations of yoga. Yogis build strength and flexibility for the body and mind by incorporating the principles of proper body alignment and breath awareness. This foundational class teaches basic yoga postures and includes breathing and centering exercises, with verbal cues to help inspire and guide practice.
This Yoga I/II blended class includes key instruction for beginner yogis, while offering options for experienced yogis to deepen and further their practice. Teachers address various levels while adapting to students' needs.
Heated Vinyasa Flow II
This is one of our Flow
This quiet class, with minimal verbal cues, offers the space to go inward. It's an opportunity to let your breath be the sound track of your yoga. Each pose will be offered with time to experience the shape in your own body. Individual guidance and attention will be given as needed. This quiet practice is intended to help you to be more present and to move meditatively through the poses, deepening your yoga. Some yoga experience is needed, but you're not required to know every pose.
This class is done in a heated room. The heat encourages greater flexibility and detoxification. Yoga experience is necessary and students are asked to bring a towel, mat and water.
