About The Teacher
Growing up as a military kid, change was the norm for Jen MacNiven… but it wasn’t easy. Change created major challenges, programmed beliefs and a ‘different’ way of life. Having ticked off all the expected life boxes — college, graduate school, corporate job, buying a house — Jen found herself spinning on a hamster wheel, unfulfilled and unhappy.
After the end of a 12-year career, she took an unplanned, last-minute trip to Bali … where life forever changed. 1 month turned into now 3+ years where Jen has traveled and lived abroad in 14 countries on a soulful, spiritual quest to step out of the predictable life boxes and forge her own path to authentic health and happiness, a life filled with celebration.
Jen’s journey has taught her new spiritual + holistic practices and traditions, including training in healthy eating, meditation, and yoga. While the journey of self-discovery never ends, this multi-year experience has shifted her focus 180 degrees, fueling not only her own authenticity but a deep desire to be of service, sharing what she has learned to support the transformation of others.
Jen holds a Masters Degree in Physical Therapy and has over 700 hours of yoga teacher and nutrition training, specializing in Vinyasa and Yin Myofascial Yoga, as well as Therapeutic Yoga and a certification in Holistic Nutrition Full Body systems. Jen has also been a professional photographer since 2004.
