Meet Jen Warren. I am a yogi, mommy, world traveler, environmental scientist, public relations professional, bar owner and Guinness drinker.
I am a Cali girl, born and raised, homegrown in the California sunshine.
I am a firm believer that mental and physical health go hand in hand. Through quieting the mind and finding your inner voice, I have found my yoga mat to be the most effective place to continually grow.
My personal practice is strong and sweaty but mindful, challenging but safe and intuitive.
I am a certified yoga and pregnancy yoga teacher, trained with Santa Monica-based yoga guru Ally Hamilton at Yogis Anonymous.
My yoga practice has given me a safe place to cry, heal, mature, love, laugh, and grow and birth two babies.
Let’s work it out on the mat.
The video below is a great general hip opener that you can do during your third trimester (27-42 weeks). Here are a few guidelines to follow:
- After 34 weeks, avoid inverting ( Dr. Mathews, DC "Unless your baby is breech and you have been given specific inversion instructions).
- Can replace down dog with a squat position during flow sequences.
- Be careful of laying on your back for too long, can put a lot of pressure on your vena cava artery (use bolsters in savasana).
