Jennelle's story


Jennelle is a practical and soulful yoga therapist who empowers others to uncover their resilience and innate knowing through their bodies.  She wants to work with people who are motivated to engage in the uncomfortable yet valuable work of necessary change.

Through life experience and steady practice Jennelle finds both value in and has a capacity to hold space for varied perspectives and truths. 

She has been an engineer, a stay-at home mom, suffered severe mental illness, still struggles with chronic tension, and trained as a yogi in a few different schools of yoga.  

She found Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy, PRYT, to be the first community she was able to show up fully as herself. She was also enabled to shift trauma into post-traumatic growth.

Jennelle has practiced yoga for more than 15 years, and been a facilitator of yoga classes for almost 10 years.  She is an accredited yoga therapist through the established school of PRYT and the International association of Yoga Therapists, IAYT.  She offers both private sessions and groups in Saskatoon and online.

Jennelle facilitates not as expert on what you need, but instead as an expert of a process of transformation, empowerment, and meaning.  She asks that you bring some curiosity and listen to yourself first, though not only.
