About The Teacher

Jennie is a Koru Trainer & Certified Koru Teacher, Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT) with over a decade of experience working in higher education, and thousands of hours of experience teaching yoga and mindfulness to people from a wide range of backgrounds. She worked for 5 years as a counselor at Duke University’s Counseling and Psychological Services, and has a private practice in Chapel Hill, NC.

Jennie finds great joy helping emerging adults discover and develop a mind-body connection, and nurture their ability to observe their thoughts, feelings, body sensations, and experiences with greater awareness and self compassion. Her clinical practice focuses on mindfulness and somatic-based therapies, with a specialization in trauma and its impact on nervous system regulation.

She is skilled at bringing mindfulness concepts to life through the expression of body movement and breath, and particularly excited to help young people develop yoga programs that will enhance and complement their mindfulness and meditation practices. Jennie developed the yoga curriculum for the Center for Koru Mindfulness® and continues to explore the intersection of yoga and mental health through her work as a counselor and teacher.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

After having just completed my RYT 200 I have been inspired to further my yoga journey and my own personal journey inward. I have fallen in love with yoga and how it has changed my life and I just want to continue to explore so I can share this beautiful gift with as many as possible. Jessica

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
