Jenny Kierstead

Founder of the National Award Winning Breathing Space Yoga Studio, Jenny is a visionary in the yoga movement and an advocate for healing and wellness. In 2009 Jenny received the prestigious Women of Excellence Award in entrepreneurship and innovation.

A columnist, public speaker and published author with Thompson Publications, Jenny has written six school yoga programs, one being the revolutionary Yoga 11, which is spreading across North America. Over 200 public school teachers have been certified through Jenny’s Teacher Training Program, which is as much about professional training as it is about personal transformation.

Jenny has studied in India and around the world with the leading authorities in yoga, yoga therapy and Ayurveda, including the legendary Shri K. Pattabhi Jois and Deepak Chopra. Her broad spectrum of study with a deep connection to spirit is what makes Jenny’s teachings inspiring, soulful and sacred.    

Jenny is currently writing a book about her spiritual awakening and lives with her husband Blair, a leading therapist, and their two spirited daughters, Sophia and Isabella.  

Testimonial from a student of Jenny’s:
“It is said that to be a fine teacher, for any particular student, is to be the person that student has waited to meet all his or her life! Thank you for sharing.”
