Our Yoga Sanctuary is a restorative space for personal growth and collective belonging. We gather to practice yoga, meditation and peace practices.
This is also our space for building skills to confidently share these practices in our community. We do this through deeper inquiry-based classes, workshops, retreats, trainings and mentoring.
Those who practice here desire to create a more loving and peaceful community and world – to offer up to our descendants. They also share with me that they feel safe, at peace at our sanctuary and call this their yoga ‘home.’

I’m Jenn Brooks and I’m an experienced yoga practitioner and educator on a quest to build a more loving and peace-driven world. I believe this starts at the grassroots level in community and by cultivating belonging.
For more than a decade as a restorative yoga teacher, I have been sharing peace practices designed to help the collective nervous system (and individual nervous systems) find safety and access the highly sought after relaxation response as to better regulate mental, emotional and physical health.
As an educator, I create and facilitate workshops, retreats and trainings for Holistic Lifestyle Practices that give you an opportunity dive in deeper to understanding the underpinnings of these eastern teachings and how they relate to your essential nature.
I also offer personalized 1:1 guidance to help you get unstuck from recurring patterns and cycles and see from a wider lens so that you feel more at ease and can move more gracefully in Our World, just by being Wholly You. When we meet and align with our essential nature and begin the journey of moving it to the foreground of our lived life, we feel content, at peace and of value – regardless of how big or small our part to play is.
I do this because I know that the more of us who are living from our own clarity and wisdom, the more loving and peaceful our world becomes.
Let's start a conversation.
I’m so grateful for the many wonderful experiences I’ve had at The Yoga Sanctuary - gentle yoga, restorative yoga, Reiki, Ayurveda workshops, and most recently the opportunity to participate in a cacao ceremony. I felt refreshed and also very peaceful at the end of the day. I recommend any and all of Jenn’s programs, as well as the community that has formed around them.
Awesome session - I’m so thrilled to have discovered Astrocartography at this point in my life! You have given me the best reading because you’ve taught me rather than just shown me - an expression springs to mind - give a person a fish and you feed them for a day, teach them to fish and you feed them for a lifetime. I can’t thank you enough 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏
"Thank you for creating a space that allows me to “wander in” and explore at my pace. I am enjoying my journey of wellness and thoughtfulness AND the opportunity to learn things that I need to learn."
Jenn’s Tuesday evening yoga Nidra class guides me to a place that allows my nervous system to reset into a peaceful, restorative state. It is a magical experience that I look forward to each week.
"For this first time in my whole life, I'm starting to feel excited about what may be ahead. That's a wonderful gift. Many blessings to you!"
The practice of Yoga Nidra is a purposeful practice that leads us through a spiral inward - through the physical, emotional, energetic, mental, wisdom and bliss bodies toward our most innate sense of self. Through this journey, we may find purpose and the peace that passes understanding.
We start by applying skillful and intentional movement to the many joints of the physical body and continue our journey from there.
As we make a conscious choice to actively be a co-participant with the trajectory of our life path, repetitive cycles begin to emerge. Patterns we recognize that have been playing out for as long as we can remember.
Through 1:1 guidance using many modalities, including Jyotisha, we will look at these repetitive patterns to try to determine how to best engage with them and allow our inner wisdom to emerge.
