Jennifer Ellinghaus

Jenny has been backpacking since 1997 and teaching yoga since 2006 and continues to enjoy learning from her diverse range of students, fellow travellers and the world. She believes there is no one reason to practise yoga and that everyone can benefit from it.

Jenny has a light-hearted approach to teaching, with an emphasis on having fun while developing strength, flexibility, balance (physical and emotional) and stillness. Jenny loves yoga and travellingand hopes to pass these passions on to others. She currently lives in Melbourne, Australia – but who knows what the future holds?
