Jennifer Aiksnoras, E-RYT500, B.S. Psychology, M.S.Counseling., is trained in Raja-Hatha Yoga.
Jenay believes that we all must understand ourselves before we can discover our individual Self. Although physical practice has helped her to open the door to inner understanding, it is Svadhyaya; self study that has been the true light upon her path. Through the study of books and ancient texts, deep concentration, and recognition of the mirrors provided by those with whom she practices and engages, she has come to see the light that shines upon her path.
Jenay has been teaching Yoga since 2005. Her training includes influences from B.K.S. Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois, Rod Stryker, Amy Pearce-Hayden, Gabriel Halpern and Elena Brower. She specializes in teaching in-studio practices with unique sequences that challenge practitioners to focus on the present moment and individualized private sessions that address that which lies beneath the physical.
Her experiences include teaching children, school teachers, adults, seniors and children with disabilities and/or recovering from trauma. She draws upon her training in psychology & counseling in order to connect with practitioners and offer a practice that encourages openness and change.
Jenay has also taught Yoga in some unique locations including the Moonlight Bunny Ranch and on stage at Harvey's Outdoor Theater. She is also the official Yoga teacher for the UNR Football team. Go Wolf Pack! She has shared the practice with groups from Google, Nike, Adidas, and more. She is also honored to have instructed Paddle Yoga on the show Total Divas.
