JENNIFER CORDERO

JENNIFER CORDERO

Teacher Trainer 150hr

Jennifer took her first yoga class in Los Angeles in the early 2000s and left (early!) convinced yoga was not her thing. A few years later in London, she was running a group to encourage women to try different sports and working her way through an A-Z of sport when she tried yoga again. Luckily it was near the end of the alphabet as she was bit by the yoga bug and there was no looking back.

She trained in Hatha (2011), Yoga Nidra (2011), Aerial yoga (2013) and paddleboarding yoga (2014).
