Jennifer Lake E-RYT 200, CRP, Ace Certified Trainer, BS
I'm an inner space engineer- a mover- a momma-a dreamer- a dancer a prancer a singer-one fine lady humdinger. I've got spirit in my soul, laughter in my heart and am bursting with enthusiasm for this wild ride called life. I used to think I-couldn't be shouldn't be- wouldn't be...until a radical dramatical shift in inner alignment and KNOWING. I cry, I laugh, I struggle, I giggle. Repeat. I show up, I give in, I begin over and over and then I get calm and peaceful. I make messes and I clean them up. Then I make more messes... and clean them up. Ilive an inspired life so that I can inspire the best in you ....you and me makes weeeeee! Together we can begin to dig into to this pile of BE the Change you wish to see in the world. All it takes is one. BE THE ONE.
Born and raised in a small town in New Hampshire, raised as a life long vegetarian and current vegan, Jennifer pursued her love of drama, writing, dance and all things creative. This lead her to move to Los Angeles California. While there she realized how much she loved comedic acting and writing. However, at 26 years young she became single, unemployed and pregnant, not exactly the trifecta of success she was looking for. Upon moving back east to raise her daughter and tackle the mighty feet of single parent-dom she became an ACE Certified Personal Trainer and Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher. She launched her premier Yoga DVD in August of 2012 to rave reviews on amazon. Over the past seven years she has helped transform the lives of Corporate Executives, Mothers and Fathers, Retired School Principals, School Teachers, Top Secret Government Employees, Entrepreneurs, and Scientists through her vivacious sense of humor and passion for all things movement oriented. Her favorite quote to live by "The Journey is the Destination" ~Jennifer Lake
Ok, so that is my official sounding let me tell you all the professional stuff bio. Of course as you know, life is not a straight line to happiness, fulfillment and success. For me, it is a very extremely tangled ball of 6 different types of mismatched yarn that I bought on sale at Michael's craft store so most likely it is synthetic and not really the best type of yarn to work with anyway. My point is, I've been through devastating heartbreak, recovered from two concussions one of which almost killed me, and two chronic life threatening diseases. My personal yoga practice, meditation practice and functional training practices along with years of personal growth work have transformed who I am from the inside out and helped me cope with high levels of stress, sometimes better than others. The mission of Elev8twithjennifer is to inform, educate, entertain and inspire you to take better care of your health. To make you a priority. When I practice yoga I am a better more gentle loving and kind mother, human being, sister, and pedestrian (among other things:).
