Jenni Wendell

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.

Malia Hill

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.

Kevin Paris

 

Singer-songwriter, hug dealer and pioneer yoga musician, Paris has toured the world playing nearly 2,000 shows as a 100% independent artist.  After humble roots growing up in Wisconsin and living in Brazil and South Africa, he is based in Los Angeles with his bandmate, Casey Kalmenson. 

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.

Jenni and Maris like to say in Yoga practice "you create your own experience". That is meant for the experience we create on the mat, but also off the mat. It can be difficult to see that no matter what happens to us, we do have some power over how we experience our life. Even while in Yoga class I tend to credit the instructor more than myself for the positive (and negative) experiences I have. In this retreat I got closer to experiencing my power in creating my own experience on the mat, and off the mat. It is invaluable to have guides on such a journey. Both Jenni and Maris talk about a path they walk. One can tell by the authenticity that is felt and which inspires. I encourage anybody this speaks to to dare to make the jump. And to try to be as open-minded as possible. I did, and I appreciated the retreat deeply. p.s. Luminary Farms is an absolutely wonderful place for such exploration!
I cannot speak highly enough about this experience. I felt so spoiled, supported, loved, and uplifted by everyone involved. Jenni and Maris were incredible. They did an outstanding job of holding space for us and gently guiding our group deeper each day. The food was delicious, the setting was beautiful, the company was superb. I would absolutely recommend any offering from Just Be.
My daughter and I had a wonderful weekend of unplugged time. Jenni and Maris put together a beautiful program. We are very grateful for the people we met, the food we shared and for the hope of meeting again. Liza & Sara
This was an amazing retreat! Everything was perfect- the yoga, the food, the surprises, the meditation, the people! Maris and Jenni planned everything to a T to make for a special weekend that I won’t soon forget. Thank you!!
Such an amazing farm! Dr. Zach Bush and Jenn were incredible. What an amazing day :)
