Wake Up Yoga


Jennifer Nehila

Jennifer discovered the Wake Up Yoga community in 2005, and it was love at first practice. She decided to delve deeper into her own practice in 2009 with Teacher Training, not knowing if she would even teach a class. The longer she practices, the more she realizes that every student's body has a wisdom of its own, and that yoga — in its simplest form — is any movement combined with breath. Jennifer likes to encourage students to move spontaneously — getting into their own body and making subtle adjustments that feel good at an intuitive level. Her classes combine creative flows with a fun peak pose that students are often surprised to achieve.

What is the most meaningful lesson that yoga has taught you?

Even in my darkest hours, yoga has provided solace and steadiness to get me though. In teaching, I love connecting with the students and letting them know that we are all in this together.

Where can you be found in your free time?

Lately, when I'm not selling real estate and teaching yoga, I've been taking adult ballet classes, reading, thrifting, and spending time with my two cats, Mr. Jones and Sophie.

What’s most interesting about you that people might not otherwise know?

In my former life, I hosted a segment for CBS News 4 called "Out and About" in Denver Colorado and have done a good deal of commercial acting.
