Jennie Blevins has taught yoga and meditation for 30 years. She completed yoga teacher training with the International Yoga Teachers Association (IYTA) in 1982, and has studied with renowned yoga teachers like Donna Farhi, Amoona Metcalf, Judith Hanson-Lasater and Leslie Kaminoff. She is an accredited full teaching member of the IYTA and Yoga Australia (YA). Jennie is qualified to conduct back care and prenatal classes. She established Goulburn Yoga in 2003, the first yoga school in the Southern Tablelands. She is also a qualified science teacher, trainer, assessor and counsellor.
Jennie runs weekly classes as well as weekend retreats for those wanting time out to deepen their personal yoga practice. She encourages students to modify postures to suit their personal state of body and mind and to use their yoga practice as a form of self- exploration and discovery.
Over the years Jennie has conducted classes in
- pre-natal yoga
- yoga for children
- yoga for seniors
- back care yoga
- general yoga
Her passion is to make authentic, classical yoga accessible to all. Jennie regards the modification of traditional practices and postures to suit the individual as essential to the basic yogic premises of sthira (steadiness) and sukha (ease). She is particularly interested in investigating how the theory and researched evidence of Western Science relates to the ancient practices of yoga and meditation.
