Jennifer Prugh

               

Jennifer Prugh is the Founder of the YA-RYT 200 and 300-hour ‘JOY of Yoga’ teacher trainings. Owner and co-founder of Breathe Together Yoga, she is a Yoga Therapist through the International Association of Yoga Therapy. Jennifer is passionate about guiding students toward discovering what is possible in life when we bring our whole selves to each moment. For the last thirteen years, Jennifer has lead yoga adventures and retreats all over the world to broaden our understanding of the world (which invariably broadens our understanding of ourselves). A professional artist with a Master’s degree in Art and Consciousness Studies, she was an associate professor for eight years at Cogswell College where she taught storytelling, mythology and creativity. She began consistently practicing yoga in 1989, and teaching yoga in 1999 following the death from cancer of her first mentor, her father. Jennifer left higher education to teach yoga exclusively, in the words of Joseph Campbell, “to follow her bliss.” Jennifer took refuge in 2010, and she is a member of the board of the Tibetan Children’s Education Foundation, and because education changes the world, she enthusiastically encourages people to sponsor the education of Tibetan children and children of refugees. She lives with her husband Will, their son Liam, and their two golden retrievers, Hobbes and River. She is finishing a photography book about what she has learned from twelve journeys to India’s River Ganga. Look for her online classes on yogaanytime.com.
