Claudine Fenniman - Director and Owner of Yoga with Love

Claudine teaches Hatha yoga with an emphasis on warming up the body to find ease in movement and steers her practice towards adults ages fifty and up. She is a 500-hour Experienced Yoga Teacher and Reiki Master. Claudine has been practicing for over 20 years and began teaching in 2010 after receiving her certification from Blue Moon Yoga.

After becoming a stay-at-home parent of two lovely daughters, Claudine rediscovered yoga through a Kripalu based practice. During that time, she began taking classes in earnest and found yoga to be her oasis. She loved the movement and connection to breath, the complexity of emotions that arose while on the mat and the lessons it brought into her life. Each class brought a deeper connection to Spirit and she knew she was on the right path.

Kripalu Yoga with its emphasis on (breath and reflection) has had a strong influence on her style of teaching. In addition, she has taken various workshops and trainings in Chair yoga, Pranyama, Restorative yoga, Teen yoga, Yoga Nidra, Yoga Tune Up, and is a continuing student of Qi Gong and Energy work.

Yoga led Claudine to the Japanese healing technique, Reiki. Claudine has taken 4 levels of certification in White Light Reiki with Janet Gabel and is a certified Reiki Master. She has been teaching Reiki since 2016.

You can find Claudine at Yoga with Love, teaching group classes weekday mornings, private yoga or Reiki sessions in the afternoons and facilitates monthly Reiki Healing circles, Attunements & Trainings.

Jill Deshong

Jill had an epiphany after turning 40. She lost weight and was looking for a way to tone and maintain her weight loss. Jill was never very physically active. She tried the machines at the gym but they were too boring and she was not coordinated enough for Zumba. She tried Yoga on the Wii Fit video game and she was hooked.

While the physical practice brought her to the mat, she quickly grew to love the whole package mind,body and spirit. Her practice has become a way for her to stay grounded, find peace and connect with herself.

Jill believes anyone can benefit from yoga regardless of age or physicality. She is so excited to share her love for the practice with the students of YOGA WITH LOVE.

May the all time sun shine upon you, all love surround you, and the pure light within you, guide your way on. Namaste
