JENNIFER ALLEN E-RYT500, RPYT, RYS 200/300, YACEP, 200 Yoga Therapy Jennifer has been expressing herself through movement for as long as she can remember. A native-born American, her journey began as a professional dancer and performing artist. Yoga and Pilates were the channels through which she maintained her physical, mental and emotional well-being throughout an intense performing career in New York, so therefore the transition into teaching was seamless. She spent several years as a training facilitator for Byron Yoga Center and Bliss Baby Yoga (whom she continues to work beside) before founding Jayayoga, which was born of her passion for providing students and teachers alike with a methodology of yoga practice that was widely accessible and could be sustained for a lifetime. Jennifer believes that the body is the vehicle through which we can express our deepest energetic self, and the union of mind, body and breath has the ability to connect us with our highest functioning potential.

SAM FORD RYT 500 Jayayoga, Bliss Baby Prenatal, Bliss Baby Postnatal It was Sam’s passion for body movement as a professional dancer that initially led her to yoga, which became a necessity to upkeep her strength amidst the demands of the 23 years that she was a performing artist.

Sam is a dedicated member of the Jayayoga teaching and facilitating team, and continues to expand her level of knowledge as her passion for yoga grows.

LIZ HOARE RYT 200 Jayayoga A native-born Canadian, Liz planted roots in New Zealand nearly 15 years ago. When she is not teaching yoga, chances are she is running after her 3 beautiful, messy, crazy, amazing boys! Teaching came naturally to Liz, as she spent many years as an internationally qualified ski instructor, and holds a bachelor of health science in Occupational Therapy. Through it all, yoga has been a quiet force within her, and when time finally allowed, she made space to complete her yoga teacher training with Jayayoga. She teaches regularly around Auckland, and her classes create a sacred space of allowing, self acceptance, and inquiry.
