Movement in all its forms—physical, psychological, and spiritual—has been the focus of Jenny’s classes for over 25 years. Although Jenny currently spends most of her time teaching yoga and Pilates Reformer classes, she still gets a thrill from leaping off her step while teaching aerobics.
Having studied with many amazing Yoga masters, Jenny’s practice is deeply influenced by John Friend, the founder of Anusara Yoga. She has participated in countless workshops with John and many of his most Senior Anusara Certified Instructors at various sites around the country. Jenny knows from experience that the Universal Principles of Alignment resonate with almost every “body,” and she regularly sees these principles at work in her students as they are empowered by the Yogic process.
Connection to her students brings Jenny great joy and satisfaction, for it is in this connection that her success, and more importantly the success of her students, is measured and manifested. As she comes to learn their histories and know their bodies; as she watches their faces when they connect to and understand the movement she’s teaching; their strength and potential motivate her to do more, learn more, and be more.
It was a privilege for Jenny to be named as one of lululemon’s ambassadors. Not only does she derive inspiration from their manifesto but she simply adores their clothing and how she feels when she’s wearing lululemon.
Faith and family are the cornerstones of Jenny’s life. She has been married to her husband for 26 years and has three beautiful children, ages 22, 18, and 12; all of whom bring light to her life every day. As a family, they enjoy time on their boat, skiing, watching movies, and time at the ocean.
Experiencing a major change in life led to Sean discovering his yoga path and a calling to guide others. As a longtime outdoor athlete experiencing the beauty of tall rocks and large mountains, Sean discovered the symbiotic relationship between yoga and these pursuits. As an instructor, Sean’s blend of challenging and nurturing his students has helped him develop a connection with those he seeks to serve.
Sean can be found teaching yoga at many locations in Boise, and is thrilled to now call MUUV one of them!

Sean is currently achieving his 500 hour yoga certification and recently taught the Mass Yoga Class for Yoga Week 2018 in Capitol Park.
