Jennifer Lightsey Schultz
Jennifer is a thriving example of the transformative power of yoga, meditation, body and energy work. Diagnosed with a serious illness in 2010, Jennifer began a life-altering journey to regain her emotional and physical health. Meditation practice led to an asana practice, which led to the study of Ayurveda and traditional modes of body and energy work.
In 2014, under the direction of Divya Elting and the supervision of Yogrishi Vishvketu, she completed her 200 hour teacher training and became a proud member of the Akhanda Yoga family. Jennifer continues to study with teachers of yoga and meditation across the country and in our community. In April 2016, she trained with Jennifer Reis at the Kripalu School of Yoga and become a certified teacher of Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra ®. She also recently completely training at MindBody Solutions with Matthew Sanford in Adaptive Yoga.
In addition to teach yoga, Jennifer is an LMT (MA#76730) and an active member of The Florida State Massage Therapy Association. In November of 2013, she completed her years of training in Tsui Shiki Rhyoho Reiki and received her Master/Teacher certificate. She is also a Registered Karuna Reiki II Practitioner.
Jennifer is passionate and enthusiastic about sharing her knowledge with others to empower them on their journey. The insight and experience gained from her personal journey to health and wholeness has given her a deep understanding and sensitivity to the needs of others in similar situations. Her classes are gentle and meditative with an emphasis on alignment and connecting breath to movement. Her massage and energy work sessions are subtle and well-suited to highly sensitive individuals.
