This class is taught by:

Jennifer Pulvermacher

Jennifer Pulvermacher, C-IAYT, e-YT 500, Yoga Therapist and experienced Yoga Teacher. For years, I have suffered from chronic back pain due to severe scoliosis. Like many people, yoga found me when I needed it most! The sacred, ancient practices of yoga and mindfulness have been absolutely transformational for me and my life. Through my practice, I learned to heal myself, to manage my back pain and thrive amidst the stress of balancing career, family and personal needs -- while living with chronic pain.
I began teaching yoga in 2009 and fell in love with it as soon as I started sharing with other people. In 2014, I launched Mind Groove and began teaching mindfulness at work and in the community.
My personal experience with the healing power of yoga inspired me to pursue a career in Yoga Therapy. I am thrilled to be working in the emerging field of yoga therapy, seeking to integrate complementary healing approaches within our current healthcare system. As a Yoga Therapist, I specialize in back pain, healthy aging, anxiety, and cancer patient support. I bring a unique combination of skills and experiences to my yoga therapy practice: leaning heavily on my firsthand experience with chronic pain, plus my career as an organizational effectiveness consultant, mindfulness practitioner, and leadership coach.

I am deeply committed to bringing the healing practices of yoga, ayurveda, and mindfulness to as many people as possible. My intention is to empower YOU to realize true health and well-being.

I took my first yoga class in 2001 out of curiosity. I remember the feeling I had after this class. My mind was at peace, body felt subtle and light, and I had overall sense of ease and balance. I wanted to cultivate these qualities more in my life, so I decided to make the practice of yoga a part of my everyday routine. Over the years I resonated with the following styles of yoga: Ashtanga Vinyasa, Prana Flow, Viniyoga and Yin Yoga. I was blessed with the opportunity to study with great teachers of these traditions: Shiva Rea, David Svenson, Richard Freeman, Paul Grilley, Paulie Zink. In 2012 I took a training in Universal Yoga with Andrey Lappa in Ukraine. I found home in this tradition. Universal Yoga is a multidimensional system that uses variety of techniques: asana, pranayama, pratyhara, dharana, and mantra to help the practitioner to find balance on all levels of beeing. This system is based on the concept of the mayakoshas - layers of being. According to traditional yoga scripture, we all function with not just one, but several bodies or Maya koshas: physical, energetic, emotional, mental, intellectual, bliss, fluctuating mind (chitta) and karmic layers. Through the practices of Universal Yoga we reach the balance between these layers, within each layer, and between the one and the world. I teach my classes in the tradition of Universal Yoga. They are often designed in a Mandala sequence, which will challenge your body, will invite your mind to stay present and bring you sense of calm and peace. I use mindfulness approach in my teaching; every asana and vinyasa become practice of dharana - concentration. By being here and now we are better able to see the patterns in the mind and body and we see more clearly what doesn't serve us anymore, what is just a habit that can be let go of. My goal as a yoga teacher is through various practices of yoga to help people to be at their optimal level of physical, mental and emotional health.
