A Little About Me...
Yogi, traveler, nature-lover and teacher. I find inspiration in the natural world and in the body's amazing ability to heal itself. I empower people to listen to their bodies and tune into their innate wisdom. I have completed over 2,000 hours of study in wellness, including certifications in yoga, yoga therapy, reiki, nutrition, herbs and meditation. I've been teaching since 2008 and I enjoy educating people on the benefits of a natural, healthy lifestyle with essential oils.
I've always had an interest in natural alternatives to pills and medical doctors. Yoga introduced me to the concept of holistic health- integrating the mind, body and spirit to achieve wholeness. My own experiences with chronic pain and food allergies solidified my belief in alternative therapies and paved the way for me to become more proactive in my health and well-being.
Now I teach yoga, meditation and wellness programs in the U.S. and abroad. I believe it's important for yoga to meet people where they are- that means delivering yoga to the workplace, teaching modifications to people with injuries, and demonstrating how ancient techniques still apply to a modern lifestyle.
If I'm not in the studio, I'm probably cooking up healthy treats in my kitchen, trekking through the forest, or blissing out with my ever-expanding essential oil collection.
Kind Words & Testimonials...
"I had a raindrop treatment with Jenna a couple days ago, and I'm still feeling the positive effects. When I came into the treatment I was stressed out, emotionally volatile, anxious, and fatigued. My stomach was irritable, and the chronic pain in my neck was flaring up. (It had been a rough day.) But after just a few minutes into the raindrop treatment everything eased up. I lost track of time (and my many woes) as I was soothed into a calming sensory experience with essential oils. Jenna has an intuitive touch, and she is one of those rare special souls whose very presence is healing. After the raindrop session I was relaxed but also sharper somehow; my body felt alive and my mind was at ease. The most appropriate word I can use to describe the feeling that the raindrop treatment left me with is "clear." And that night I slept like a dream."
"Jenna is one of my favorite instructors. I love the way she conducts her classes. Every practice is well organized and disciplined yet fun and challenging. She guides with clear and easy to follow instructions so I never feel lost or confused about what to do. I also feel like she is always right there if my posture needs correction. Jenna has a wonderful warm personality and is a great instructor."

"Jenna leads her classes with a gentle but strong voice, encouraging you to stretch to the next level, while also being respectful of your body's different needs at each practice. Her classes are challenging but without any pressure or feeling of competition. Jenna doesn't push; she guides. And her own graceful poses are an inspiration! In a one-on-one session, she incorporates poses that are most beneficial to your individual practice. I whole-heartedly recommend working with her!"
"I've been teaching for 7 years, practicing for 14 and have experienced some of the finest most celebrated yoga teachers. I thoroughly enjoy Jenna's class as she possesses some of the many rare qualities that create great yoga teachers, most notably a unique attention to detail, well chosen transitions, intuitive flow and a thirst for constant improvement. Each class I attend Jenna brings new life and challenge, enabling students to grow their practice and experience the many levels of bliss yoga provides."

"I wholeheartedly recommend that anyone looking for a means of increasing flexibility, range of motion and overall wellness should utilize the expertise of Jenna Miller. Having tried to do Yoga in the past, I grew frustrated by my less than average flexibility and my inability to “keep up” with other students in group classes. I was referred to Jenna years ago while I was a soccer referee. While Jenna clearly possesses a supreme level of knowledge of and a passion for her particular discipline, Jenna is very gifted at adapting techniques to accommodate those who wish to gain the health benefits of Yoga but who cannot perform all of the various poses without risk of injury. I found myself gradually feeling an increase in my own flexibility and range of motion, which permitted me to recover from hours of running and pounding on the soccer pitch much more quickly than had been the case in the past. I also found myself having more energy later in the day after doing a good session with Jenna. At the same time I first begin doing yoga with Jenna, I was also going through the “adjustment” period two years after the end of a 20 year marriage. I clearly can state that the increased sense of calm and higher level of endorphins gave me the mental boost to get off the couch in the evenings and begin to partake in Country and Western dancing again after many years. Not only do I enjoy doing this for a social activity, I now compete in partner dancing at a high level. Now that Jenna is back in San Diego, I plan to begin doing some sessions with her again."
"I have known Jenna for several years and she is truly a gift of inspiration. Jenna has dedicated hours and hours to her Yoga practice, personal development, and spirituality. Jenna continues to share her insights with the world and upholds the highest degree of integrity, transparency and intention. If you have the chance to meet her or work with her she will light up your day."

"Jenna is an amazing yoga teacher. She is very patient and understanding to the needs of her students. She has great knowledge about how the body functions and that every body needs different things. Teaching a class of yogis is not easy but she makes it seem effortless. "
"Jenna is a rare blend of business and heart; she has the skills to problem solve, follow through and execute any administrative task just as well as she inspires her yoga students to transform. She's trustworthy, hard working, communicative and easy to get along with. Beyond her professional administrative skills, Jenna is an extraordinary yoga teacher that adds light to any team, office, studio, or environment she works in. I would work with her again and recommend her to anyone as a must-have addition to their team."
