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.

  • MEDITATION - MINDFULNESS
  • Mondays, 6:30 - 7:00pm
    Mindfulness is a quality we already possess. It can also be cultivated through practice. Mindfulness is often described as the act of paying attention on purpose, deeply, and without judgment to whatever arises in the present moment. By doing so, we live more fully, rather than feeling stuck in "automatic pilot." Our Monday evening meditation class is designed to develop the skill of paying attention to our inner and outer experiences with acceptance, patience, and compassion. In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the volume of research surrounding mindfulness practice and how it helps us to live healthier, happier lives. Join us!
