About Your Retreat Leaders:
Nina and Jenna met where else, but a yoga studio in San Diego. They became fast friends sharing interests in yoga, travel, the ocean, and connecting within their local community. Jenna is a highly regarded San Diego based E-RYT 200 hour teacher and Nina, a certified E-RYT 500 hour SmartFLOW yoga teacher sharing her passion for yoga in San Diego, Boston, and Cape Cod yoga communities. Both Nina and Jenna's teachings offer skillful alignment, intelligent sequencing, and steady attention to the breath creating an environment of inquiry, integrity, and playfulness in their classes. Their hope is to offer challenging yet compassionate space for their students to curiously explore their practice enabling a sense of mindfulness, awareness, joy, kindness, and acceptance both on and off their mats. They are passionate about building an adventurous and fun yoga community to travel to new exciting parts of the world. Jenna and Nina will be offering vinyasa, restorative, pranayama, and mindfulness/meditation practices throughout the retreat.
