Jenni Wendell discovered the practice of yoga just when she needed it the most: as a young adult struggling with depression, anxiety, and burnout. What she found was a practice that allowed her to ground, clear, and awaken to her true self. After experiencing the power of yoga, Jenni felt called to leave her corporate life behind and devote herself to sharing healing practices with others.
Jenni’s love for connection prepared her to become a nurturer of gathering spaces that have become a home for many. Leader and visionary of the Just Be Yoga studios and Luminary Farm, Jenni uses the tools of ThetaHealing®, meditation, yoga, and mindfulness to empower herself and others to live their best life.
The Just Be Yoga studios have become beloved sanctuaries for the Bay Area. Lovingly designed to become a “home away from home” for all who enter, Just Be Yoga’s spaces are warm, welcoming, and nourished by masterful teachers each with their own unique voice. Rooted in the eight limb path of yoga, Just Be is committed to offerings that honor the practice beyond the yoga mat.
The Luminary Farm is a vision come to life for Jenni, who finds peace and inspiration when she’s surrounded by nature. Nestled in the hills and overlooking Mount Diablo, the farm is the perfect home for a variety of trainings, gatherings, and retreats. A tranquil refuge from hectic, everyday life, the Luminary Farm twinkles with magic and possibility.
In 2009 Malia left corporate America and has taught yoga ever since. Malia’s classes are both spiritual, playful and challenging and she also co-leads Teacher Training at Just Be Yoga. She is the co-founder of SupAsana East Bay, Yoga Reaches Out Bay Area, and has taught at The Wanderlust Festivals in Oahu and Squaw Valley. She has had the pleasure of teaching at Om Rising, Yoga Rocks the Park, The Oakland A's Yoga Day, and leads local, national, and international yoga retreats. She had the honor of being a Lululemon ambassador for six consecutive years and is now a legacy ambassador.

An internationally demanded musician, award winning songwriter and grass roots, independent artist, Paris has shared stages and lineups with artists from Stephen Marley, Michael Franti, Magic Giant, and Trevor Hall, to Xavier Rudd, Nahko and Diplo.
In addition to the traditional music scene, Paris is the go-to singer-songwriter paving the way for artists on the vibrant yoga & live music scene. Since completing his yoga teacher training in 2012, he has played for over one thousand yoga classes at festivals, retreats and events worldwide.
No matter the venue, Paris’ unmistakable, feel-good music uplifts, connects and keeps the movement moving.
