About Jenny Otto
Teaching yoga since 1990, revered and respected, Jenny Otto has trained hundreds of yoga therapists and advanced yoga teacher trainers through Body Balance Yoga School of Yoga Therapy. Jenny has been teaching and developing wellness, exercise and movement therapy programs nationally since 1980.
Jenny Otto’s Experience
Jenny is also a Certified Anatomy Trains Structural Integrator specializing in visceral manipulation, visceral and peripheral nerve therapy and osteopathic listening. Structural Integration, which is based on the pioneering work of Dr. Ida P. Rolf, manually releases tensions in the body that prevent a more balanced alignment.
The capacity to transmit movement information depends on a teacher’s embodiment. Central to embodiment is one’s own kinesthetic empathy which Jenny owns through personal practice and teaching yoga for over 35 years.
Jenny’s teaching is compassionate, inspirational and fun. Her clear and precise teaching style is authentic and is committed to awakening a deeper knowledge and understanding of the body, mind and spirit. She brings warmth, humor and creativity to her teaching, as well as detailed knowledge in working with injuries and special conditions.
In 2007, Jenny began studying with Thomas Myers of Anatomy Trains and has participated in dissections of human cadavers with Myers to further her understanding of the body. As well, she has participated in dissections with Eric Root and Todd Garcia. In 2010, Jenny also began her studies with Hubert Godard — Dancer, Rolfer, Professor and Movement Educator.
Her unending quest to bring a deeper understanding of the body to her students and to all of the teachers she trains, takes Jenny Otto around the world. And she shares the depth of her knowledge and her love of yoga as she travels worldwide leading Yoga Retreats and teaching Yoga Workshops, Yoga Teacher Trainings, Yoga Residencies and Yoga Therapy Trainings.
All workshops, teacher trainings and classes with Jenny Otto fulfill Yoga Alliance Teacher Continuing Education Requirements.
