Jennifer Portnoy

Twenty five years ago, Jennifer discovered yoga was the perfect bridge to help her transition away from her professional dance career. Yoga offered a more gentle, nurturing means to realize the joy in movement without the competitive edge of the performing arts. Jennifer has received a bachelor of fine arts in dance from SUNY Purchase, a doctorate in physical therapy from Temple, and 200 hour yoga teacher certificate from Pranakriya School of Healing Arts.
Currently Jennifer uses yoga principles in her work as a physical therapist with outstanding results and sees the therapeutic benefits of yoga beyond what her traditional physical therapy practice offers.

“I access grace, joy, and internal energy in every yoga posture I practice, and I feel honored and grateful to pass these gems onto my patients and students”

Jennifer has 2 boys, now young men, and a dog named Five.
