Jenny Guzon-Bae is a Yoga Alliance-certified E-RYT & YACEP yoga and meditation teacher. In her youth in Illinois, Jenny studied ballet and gymnastics for over 13 years. Her love of dance cultivated her passion for movement and, in later years, inspired her passion and importance for health and fitness.
It wasn’t until she competed on the reality TV show Survivor when she knew that teaching yoga was her true path in life. Often practicing yoga and meditation to keep herself focused and centered during the game, Jenny experienced the true gifts of yoga and later became more drawn towards a spiritual way of living and mind/body connection. Since 2008, she has since studied with many renowned yoga teachers and movement specialists, always learning and expanding her experience and knowledge of this lifelong practice. In 2012, she started a yoga retreat company, Yoga Within You, teaching yogis from all over the world and traveling to many international countries.
Jenny teaches group classes incorporating intelligent and creative sequencing, paired with the physical and spiritual aspects of yoga. In each class, expect a creative, breath-led vinyasa class that emphasizes functional movement with a strong focus on anatomy and structural strengthening.
Yoga is a path of self-discovery, giving us the opportunity to continually transform the Self, and bringing us to a place of deeper connection to what is truly important. Thus, every class, Jenny weaves in dharma talks supported by yoga history and philosophy which help students to understand yoga beyond the physical. Her goal is for students to leave feeling uplifted, inspired, light, strong and peaceful so that they may learn to live yoga beyond the mat.
Jenny’s yoga practice has brought many positive changes to her life, and she is honored to teach yoga so that others can use the body to reach their heart and mind.
