Jen Carter is a NYC based yoga and meditation teacher and founder of ZenJen Yoga. Prior to her yoga life, Jen had been on the fast track with a successful corporate career. However, a traumatic accident in 2010 caused Jen to awaken to the healing benefits of yoga and become a teacher.
Jen has studied Ashtanga Yoga through It's Yoga, based in San Francisco, and she has continued her studies in NYC at Yoga Vida, Pure Yoga, and Ishta Yoga. In addition to teaching classes at Yoga Vida, she has found herself back in corporate America, but in a much different capacity this time, teaching yoga and meditation in corporate offices. She has taught for large companies such as Ebay, About.com, Estee Lauder Companies, Refinery29, Weight Watchers, and lululemon.
Outside of NYC, you can find Jen hosting luxury yoga and meditation retreats around the world with EAT.PRAY.MOVE. Together with founder Erin Lewis, they teach yoga and meditation in unique destinations including Morocco, Croatia, Italy, India, Iceland, and France. These unique adventure luxury yoga retreats have been featured in Time Magazine, Elle Magazine, and HuffPost Travel.
Whether you are in class with Jen in NYC, in Morocco, or virtually online, you will find Jen's philosophy and practice to be consistent. She challenges her students to push beyond their self-limitations all while keeping a light-hearted, "don't take myself too seriously" attitude. Jen believes yoga and life should be practiced with focus, but most importantly with FUN! For more on Jen visit www.zenjenyoga.com.
