Jenn Brooks saved me in so many ways by encouraging my awareness and teach me to breathe.
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.
I Love, Love, Love your yoga! I always feel so much better mentally and physically. I feel reconnected to my body. I’m reclaiming it!
Start your journey with a conversation by
As the director and operator of this space, I share with you my values:
--Yoga practice is for all bodies and I aim to make the classes I share assessible for most everyone.
--I aim to build community and a sense of belongingness.
--I create a safe environment for you to find your own inner sanctuary residing in the heart of your heart.
--I acknowledge that Yoga comprises more than our physical body. I aim to offer classes and workshops that support restoring balance in the astral/subtle body of vitality and energy as well as the causal body of higher mind, karma and soul self.

947 Main Street in the village of Barboursville.
From Farmdale Road going into the village, go through the two traffic lights and take the first left after the police department (Stowasser Avenue).
Then take the immediate right, onto a paved driveway that curves all the way around to the back door entrance and parking lot. The red door says "St. Andrews Commons."
NOTE: There are no signs for the Yoga Sanctuary.
Gentle and Accessible Yoga classes are ideal for those who have impaired joint mobility (bad knees, hips, shoulders) and need classes that are more accessible and gentle on those joints.
Active classes are going to involve more standing and strengthening poses and feel more like a "work-out" depending on your physical condition.
Restorative classes are passive classes that are done on the floor using a bunch of yoga bolsters and blankets. They support deep relaxation and often involves breathing and meditations practices.
Beginner and Basics classes mean there will be more instruction given, teaching elements of poses and often including personal instruction. Beginner classes can be gentle and accessible or not.
Yin Yoga is done on the floor and is a deep stretch. Modifications are offered for people with joint mobility issues. It is often practiced alongside Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra in my classes. I consider this advance yoga practice, albeit physically gentle most often.
Yoga Nidra is an advanced form of guided meditation and relaxation and journey into the heart of your heart, your innermost sanctuary. This is an advanced practice as well as the way I teach it.
Asana Clinics are workshops where I go into a set of poses and help a student learn modifications and variations and possibly deepen their asana knowledge. Asana means "pose."
Retreats and workshops are where we dive in deeper together through movement, meditation, lecture, inquiry and more.
Yoga Nidra & Restorative Yoga on Tuesday 6pm class is Yin/Restorative and Yoga Nidra and considered an advanced class but I will take mature beginners. We are more intentional with the sacredness of gathering together while we REST in community and attune our nervous systems with Meditations, Yin/Restorative and Yoga Nidra long guided savasana journey. This is a floor stretchy yoga class and modifications are offered for those with joint mobility issues.
The Wellness Protocols: As we become used to the reality that virus is endemic, the following guidelines and suggestions for collective beneficial community care, both from a physical and mental/emotional standpoint.
I ask that each of us have full autonomy for our own safety. If at any time you feel safer wearing a mask, wear it. I invite you to bring your own masks and I will have disposable masks available.
At certain times of the year when many people could be displaying symptoms of allergies. Be aware of both your own allergy responses and be compassionate to those who are dealing with allergies. Again, if at any time you feel unsafe around those displaying allergy symptoms, please wear a mask or excuse yourself from class.
To limit the risk of infection, I ask that those who attend class onsite/in-person carefully and honestly assess their health prior to heading to class and ask that anyone who is even mildly symptomatic (including sore throat, cough, sinus/nasal congestion, loss of smell, fever, or unexplained body ache or fatigue) stay home.
While I appreciate the hardship of missing a class that you may have made significant sacrifices to be able to attend, the wellbeing and care for all those attending is of utmost importance.
Together, let’s do our best to make this a safe, enjoyable, and supportive environment.
Due to the nature of this ever-changing situation, there may be a need for a shift in this protocol. I reserve the right to modify these suggestions at any time.
