“Jenny is a phenomenal teacher. I have been taking her Restorative Yoga class for some time now. She is enthusiastic and always welcoming to all. It’s clear that Jenny has a vast knowledge of yoga.

She reads the room to assess the energy of each student and seamlessly adjusts her teachings accordingly to meet the needs of the day. She is extremely attuned to her students: sensitive to their needs, challenges, and strengths. Each class feels customized to whatever it is you need to work on. She establishes right away that this class is about you, not to compete with others or yourself, and to ultimately have fun!

I am so impressed with Jenny’s ability to keep class moving effortlessly and with the highest degree of comfort; it’s a testament to her experience and skill as a teacher. Whether she’s attending to a group that’s large or small, she keeps the comfort level at the maximum, making the studio space a true sanctuary of relaxation.

Her class leaves me with a sense of calm and clarity to take on a new week. She also aims to empower her students as they walk out the door. She always goes above and beyond to provide tips and ideas that encourage students to take what they learn in the studio into their daily lives. Thank you, Jenny!”

— Joanna Cole Randall, Director of Communications, Marketing & Public Relations at Hathaway-Sycamores Child & Family Services, Los Angeles, CA

“My family and I never expect to find a yoga instructor we love as much as Jenny.

Working with Jenny has been transformative for us. She is so generous in sharing her deep knowledge and practice with others, and even in large group classes always finds ways to give personal attention and direction to those who need it. We’ve had different injuries at times during our practice, and Jenny is always mindful and carefully guides us to make adjustments. She seamlessly integrates so many different traditions and bodies of knowledge into her teaching, and we always come away from her classes feeling stronger, happier, more connected and energized.”

” Jenny is a very thoughtful and supportive Restorative Yoga guide and teacher.  In her classes, Jenny provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere in which I always feel safe to go deeply into restorative poses to release both physical and deep emotional tension.  After Jenny’s classes, I always feel nurtured, a sense of deep calm and a greater sense of clarity. ”

— Ray Lee, Line Producer, Los Angeles, CA

“Jenny is teaching a series of meditation classes to my Life Skills students at Southwestern Academy in San Marino, CA. As well as meditation practices, Jenny has covered several important topics including emotions, thoughts, and kindness. She has a gift when it comes to teaching teenagers in a classroom setting.

Jenny is very professional and arrives ready to teach. She always puts in time planning engaging activities and lessons. Jenny is very welcoming and creates a warm, friendly atmosphere. It is evident that she is very knowledgeable and has a wide breadth of experience. Jenny is aware of each student’s needs and comfort levels. She can quickly adapt her teachings to meet the needs of specific students.

Most importantly, when Jenny leaves my classroom my students report feeling calmer and more relaxed. They say they are able to let go of a lot of the stresses they brought into the room. The students feel empowered to go forward with the rest of their day with more clarity and confidence.

The students are already developing and incorporating skills and knowledge into their daily lives that will serve them throughout their educational and career lives, as well as in their various interpersonal relationships. I am so grateful for Jenny’s generosity in her willingness to come share such valuable life skills with my students.

I am also grateful to have Jenny Kay as my Restorative Yoga guide. I always leave her classes feeling much better that when I walked in, both emotionally and physically. Jenny’s teaching are life changing. I would highly recommend Jenny as a competent guide and teacher.”

— Michele Russo, High School Science, and Life Skills Teacher, Los Angeles, CA

“In Jenny Kay’s Restorative Yoga class, I have learned how to relax and to practice deep stretches, resetting my whole nervous system.  Her pacing is varied: we move from a more vigorous cardio wake-up to slower, meditative poses that help to clear the mind of clutter and to get in touch with the inner self. 

I like how Jenny explains the purpose and value of each of the poses. She is very knowledgeable about the practice of Restorative Yoga and very kind and encouraging to all.  I am a relative newcomer to yoga and a little older than the others, so I was unsure of myself, but she was very welcoming and helpful. 

I know that these classes have reduced my anxiety and have taught me how to take good care of my body, mind, and spirit. I feel more at ease and confident as I face the challenges of the week, thanks to Jenny’s classes.”

— Sonja Lovelace, Los Angeles CA

“I enthusiastically recommend Jenny Kay as a best in class yoga instructor. Jenny helped me tremendously with understanding concepts of relaxation, yoga, breathing and how I can adapt my routines to a life that follows standard constructs of Buddhism. She is very helpful, has a stellar sense of caring for her clients and a wonderful sense of humor to boot. I continue to take lessons with Jenny as the yoga strategies I learn from her are very helpful in daily life. Jenny is a wonderful human being and instructor.

— William Seguritan, Information Technology Consultant, Los Angeles CA

 

I have studied under Jenny Kay for the last 2 years and am delighted I am still learning new tools and methods from her.  Jenny has taught me relaxation techniques that I (or anyone) can use repeatedly in real world situations, like commuting on the train or having to sit in a less-than-ideal cubicle situation.

She is astute at individualizing her instructions for diverse people within her class, on the spot.  Her prompts are clear and firm, and always heartfelt and nuanced.  I have repeatedly observed her encouraging and working with people who might have physical limitations or health issues, but could benefit the most from her assistance.

While Jenny is a great yoga instructor, she is also cognizant of the traditional spiritual teachings that lend themselves to optimal spiritual, mental and physical wellness.  That is something I really appreciate about her.  I look forward to many more years of working with her!”

— Chris Avery, Neutral Recruitment & Training, FINRA Office of Dispute Resolution, Los Angeles, CA

“I had the privilege of experiencing guided meditation with Jenny. I experienced an overwhelming flow of what she explained as activated dormant energy. It was unlike anything I had ever felt, and had a profound effect of strength and clarity for the days that followed.

I would highly recommend Jenny to assist one in reaching their yoga and meditation goals. I’m sure I share the opinion that she was meant to do this type of work as a catalyst for bringing the energy of awareness to those who seek to develop it from within.”

— Steve Meraz, Graphic Designer, Denver, CO

 

“We would like say a big thank you to Jenny for her exceptional yoga class at our retreat. We felt that many of the retreat participants enjoyed her company as well as her class.

We highly recommend her for any position as a yoga instructor, and we found her skills to be very versatile. She was exceptionally charismatic, and many people enjoyed her company. It was a true blessing having her conduct the yoga for our retreat.”

— Indeara and Jonathan, Sacred Potential in Business, Inc., San Diego, CA

“Jenny is the best yoga teacher I’ve ever had. She was able to teach me yoga in a way that allowed me to tap into my inner wisdom and guidance that took me to a level of deep peace and relaxation. I feel completely rejuvenated after her classes at a very deep level.

I am really grateful for the joyful and vital spirit Jenny always brings to yoga practice and to life.”

– Anne Troutman, Artist + former Professor of Architecture at Southern California Institute of Architecture, Santa Monica, CA

 

 

“When I was finished with the first session of meditating, stretching, deep breathing, dancing like a madman, etc., I felt different. Better. Relaxed, for the first time in months. Over the next few sessions, Jenny equipped me with techniques to control my mind and emotions so that I could get a decent night’s rest. The more time I spent under her tutelage, the more arrows I had in my quiver that enabled me to find peace once again.

I don’t think I can overstate the importance of the direction that Jenny gave me. The path Jenny started me on, I continue down today. I use her techniques every single day and night of my life. I probably always will. I don’t know how many people Jenny has helped in this way, but it should be more.”

— Joe Menza, Actor + Business Entrepreneur, Los Angeles, CA

She worked with large groups of students, and was able to command their attention and meet the needs of a diverse crowd.

— Kathy Bingham, Professor of Health Education, Yoga Instructor, Antelope Valley College, CA

 

“I have had the great opportunity to attend several of Jenny’s meditation classes. With a calm and relaxing teaching method, Jenny guided my meditation to a deep and profound place that had never experienced before. Not only am I grateful to have the chance to work with her, I am grateful that she offered her knowledge and expertise through her classes. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to take their meditation practice to a deeper level.”

“Jenny is a true master of yogic expertise. Not only is she skilled in the practical knowledge of yoga asanas, she is a master instructor. Her insight and meticulous understanding of yoga make the practice deeply unique. Jenny is highly skilled in facilitating the asanas with detailed instruction and continuous feedback. This provides a very deep experience for novices, and pushes intermediate practitioners to new skill levels. Her unique style is easy to follow, and her friendly personality and caring attitude just makes yoga happen effortlessly!

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your help and guidance over the past few months. Having been to yoga classes for several years, I came along to your class simply because it fit in with the opening hours of my new business. Little did I know on that first visit to your class, that you would be such an influence on my life.

It will be a gradual process, changing the habits and beliefs of 55 years can’t happen over night – but your teachings have changed how I live my life on a day-to-day basis. I now try to live in the moment, whereas I have spent most of my life worrying about what might happen or not happen, or burying my head in the sand. You have helped open my mind up to things I didn’t know.

I have now learned to walk away from certain situations or to look at them and react in a different way to how I have in the past – invaluable. There’s much more I could say, but I’m not sure I need to, I think you know that you have been a great influence on me and opened my eyes to so many things…”
