Meet the Instructor – Jena Sawyer

Meet the Instructor – Jena Sawyer

Jena’s journey into yoga, meditation, and mindful movement started many years ago in pursuit of stress relief and a better night’s sleep. She has spent countless hours studying, exploring, learning, and cultivating practical applications and relatable perspectives. She loves to share these and is enthusiastic about helping others travel their own unique path to well-being.

Her passion is helping people create more ease… in their mind, body, relationships, work, and life. She urges them to start wherever they are rather waiting for the elusive someday.  Her “option-rich” classes center on breath and awareness, with suggestions for variations and encouragement of personal exploration in each posture.

Jena teaches classes for the Highlands Ranch Recreation Centers and also offers coaching, workshops, and retreats. Her self-published book, Yoga Thinking, offers tools and techniques to help modern-day yogis apply yoga’s wisdom to their everyday life.

Join Jena and all of our amazing instructors this  summer at Free Yoga in the Park, starting Saturday May 27, 2017 from 8:15-9:15 hosted by NamasteWorks Yoga + Wellness and the Highlands Ranch Metro Districts.  For more details on the remaining schedule and what to bring, visit http://namasteworksyoga.com/events.

FREE Yoga in the Park (2011) – Highlands Ranch – Meet the Instructors

Free Yoga in the Park – Opening Day June 4
Meet The Instructors – Jena Sawyer

We welcome Jena back for a second year guiding the Free Yoga in the Park practice.  Jena’s passion is simplifying mind-body movement, mindfulness and holistic living for people of all ages, abilities, and belief systems. Her overall philosophy is that there is no right or wrong. In movement, the exception is pain and she encourages students to modify postures in ways that keep them present in the moment and allow for deep breathing. She believes that taking away the “good” and “bad” labels actually keeps us more present in the moment and in the experience, and less in the story running through our heads.

Yoga in the Park - Highlands Ranch - NamasteWorks Yoga 2011In addition to teaching yoga, Jena is also a life coach. In coaching as in movement, she sees her role as a guide there to facilitate transformation.
