Upon entering the doors of Sparkle Yoga, you immediately feel both safe and serene. Yoga is not only about getting a stronger, toner body or releasing stress and anxiety, it is about getting familiar with yourself. It is about creating space where you were once stuck. It is about peeling away the layers of protection that you have built around you, it is about opening your heart. To appreciate your body and become aware of the noise that the mind creates. Yoga is about finding peace within yourself and loving you. Please join us at Sparkle Yoga and be authentically you. We are a loving and nonjudgmental community, we believe in the power of helping one another. And we’ll constantly strive to better ourselves and in turn, others. Come to your yoga mat, feel strong, empowered, and confident while also holding space for you to release whatever is not serving you. Whether you are beginning your yoga journey or continuing it, we honor that you have chosen us to provide the path. Making the first step is the hardest part, but here you will be welcomed with open hearts!
The love and the light within us sees and bows to the love and the light within you
Yoga Alliance 200 hr
Jennifer has been practicing yoga for over 12 years. It soon became such a positive change in her life she knew she had to spread the love. Immediately after receiving her Yoga Alliance certification she began her teaching career and two years later Sparkle Yoga was born.
“What I love most about bringing yoga into peoples lives is that they achieve a clarity and a happiness they didn’t have before. Sure they become more flexible, stronger, and healthier, but self love and self assurance comes with it. They start to do things they never thought they could do. And they realize that you’re never too old or too uncoordinated to do something. Yoga is a more than physical, it is mental, emotional and spiritual. It is definitely a game changer! I am lucky to be sharing it with so many others.”
“There are so many people and so many challenges out there that tend to dull our sparkle over time. Sparkle Yoga is here to add more sparkle to your life. It’s here to help you give yourself permission to love and except every part of you. It’s here to help you leave a little sparkle, wherever you go!”
“I am honored to be able to be part of your yoga journey and I am equally grateful that so many amazing people have chosen to be part of mine! What’s really beautiful about yoga is that no matter where you are on your path, it’s always the right time to begin.
See you on the mat!”
Keep Calm and Sparkle On

I am an Apple guru/geek, a potter, an amateur/pro photographer. I also really love barbecue. These things have always made me happy while I am actively engaging. Ascension allows me to experience joy no matter what I am doing. The reason I teach is to allow people to discover that there’s only a sock puppet in their head. And discover the true joy that this teaching can bring to anyone.
