Jen Tan

After dipping in and out of yoga for several years, a serious injury led Jennifer towards a more consistent practice. Beyond the rehabilitative benefits, she soon realised there was more to yoga than regaining her mobility. Eventually, she decided to pursue her first teacher training, wanting to share what she had learnt with others. Having been in education for over a decade, as well as a group exercise instructor and CrossFit coach, the transition felt smooth, with these various roles developing Jennifer’s understanding of what it means to be an educator – regardless of the subject matter.

Jennifer also enjoys other movement modalities, from kettlebell-based strength and cycling (indoors and outdoors), to more explorative methods such as Functional Range Conditioning and Feldenkrais. Her interest in yoga, movement and rest has led her to train with the likes of Judith Hanson Lasater, Dr Nicholas Romanov, Jason Crandell, Carl Paoli, Sean Haleen, Dianne Bondy, Amber Karnes and Jean Byrne. She also assists Judith in her Restorative Yoga trainings when time and travel permit.

All of Jennifer’s classes include invitational breath work, finding ways to move in our bodies with confidence, and an exploration of mindfulness that is curious and compassionate. Jennifer believes that everyone has the right to move with joy, and to experience the magic of slowing down. As much as she can at this point in her journey, she aims to guide students through an intersectional, accessible and inclusive lens.
