SOMATIC YOGA & DEEP VINYASA YOGA

Jeni Howland guides a yoga practice that works holistically with the body to promote ease of movement, steadiness of breath and stillness of mind.

Jeni has been practising yoga for over 15 years. She has studied and practised many branches including Hatha, Ashtanga, Tantra, Iyengar and Kundalini. She has had the privilege of gathering knowledge and guidance from yoga teachers in India, Thailand, the UK and Australia. She completed a Yoga Teacher Training course, accredited by Yoga Alliance, in Thailand in 2013. Jeni then trained as a Somatic Movement Teacher with Tanya Fitzpatrick in 2014 and with James Knight in 2017. 

With a breadth of knowledge including qualifications as a dance teacher, fitness instructor and a gymnastics coach, Jeni guides Yoga classes with keen attention to physical alignment, somatic awareness and holistic wellbeing.

Jeni's Somatic Movement classes and private sessions teach mindful motion in order to transform painful muscular tension, enabling you to become and remain pain-free. 

When we learn a new movement, the brain creates a Movement Pattern and, through repetition, is able to program this Movement Pattern into the muscle memory. But what if, when we learn a movement, we use our muscles and joints in an inefficient way? This is a common cause of muscular tension that, over time, can lead to debilitating pain and injury. This can occur when playing sport or in daily life when we program simple Movement Patterns such as how we use a computer mouse, carry a bag or hold a phone.


Individual Personalised Somatic Movement sessions will teach you to use your muscles in a more beneficial way, increasing efficient capacity for building strength and eliminating muscular tension and pain. 

For information about private or bespoke classes or workshops, please contact Jeni directly.


Jeni also teaches Yoga and Mindfulness to children, providing classes in schools and clubs and is available to do private classes or Yoga Parties at your home. Contact Jeni or click below for more information.

Testimonials

The way I catch myself sitting and standing when I’m not even aware of it is quite a remarkable change from when I first came [to see you]. I never knew it was possible to retrain the body and mind like this. Thanks so much for your help Jeni!

— Chris

Thank you so much for that INCREDIBLE class! It was a real game changer for me.

— Philly

After attending to Jeni's sessions for several months, I already noticed the difference - my posture has much improved-something which I could not reach for years with other teachers
