Jenna Valez

Jenna Valez (she/her) is a Bay Area native with a professional background in contemporary dance. She has over 10 years of experience in performance, choreography, and teaching, a BA in psychology and is a graduate of Yoga Garden’s Advanced Studies program. 

Jenna uses yoga as a tool to come home, connect inwardly, and hopefully radiate that internal light with her community. She teaches to create a safe space for people to come into the present moment and discover the inherent beauty and strength we all possess. She believes movement is for everyone as her classes are geared towards all levels of practice. Jenna likes to keep her vinyasa practice fresh through creative and explorative movement. What moves you and how can we lead with that intention? 

Jenna has danced, performed and/or taught in Israel, Berlin, Amsterdam, and Arrezo. Jenna’s dance company, PULP, has participated in several competitive choreographic mentorships including ODC Pilot (SF) and Doug Varone’s DEVICES (NYC). Jenna is currently working towards her 300-Hour certificate through Yoga Garden SF. 

She is excited to share yoga and her expansive knowledge of movement with the Yoga Garden community.
