Jenna Faith was always looking for something greater than herself and a way to devote her life to the service of others. She had practiced yoga as a teenager, but in 2012 John Smrtic introduced her to the Jivamukti method. Enchanted by Jivamukti’s focus on spirituality and activism, Jenna completed her teacher training under the guidance of founders Sharon Padma Gannon and David Life in May 2013. She then apprenticed with advanced certified mentor Jessica Stickler, completing 800 hour certification in May 2014. Jenna is grateful to have studied with these and other Jivamukti teachers who have positively influenced and supported her. Many of her teaching techniques have been gleaned from study and classes with Jessica Stickler and Jules Febre, while the music and mood of John Smrtic’s classes have always enlivened her spirit.
Jenna’s personal experience living with chronic pain, fibromyalgia and joint hypermobility deeply inform her practice and teaching, bringing a level of awareness, sensitivity and safety to her classes. Her complex, dynamically sequenced classes are set to meticulously crafted, uplifting musical soundtracks that deepen the inward experience of yogic union. Jenna’s classes, workshops and private sessions are always personalized for any level of practitioner, with special attention to their needs, alignment, and the growth of the student’s personal practice. Jenna has also enjoyed several opportunities to assist and teach workshops at festivals internationally, most recently at Prague Spirit Festival and Bhakti Fest. She lives part of the year in the motherland of India, staying deeply connected to her practice, devotion and the core of yoga teachings.
