About Jennifer
 

I am Jennifer or Jenni, and my pronouns are she/her/ella.

I am an Accessible and Trauma-sensitive yoga teacher (E-RYT200), occupational therapist (OT), somatic coach, permaculture gardener, and neuropsychologist in training.

 

I teach and coach in English and Spanish.

My experience teaching yoga started in Chile, my home country, in mental health with occupational therapy.

I have taught yoga and meditation in South America, Asia, and Europe, in studios, Buddhist retreats, festivals, and NGO´s supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion in Helsinki, Finland where I am currently based. 

Here I am to support you to cultivate self-care and sustainable well-being, befriending your nervous system regardless of your abilities, age, background, or experience. 

As an OT, I combine science (evidence-based models) and traditional knowledge to help enhance your wellbeing from a spiritual and biopsychosocial perspective.
