Jenna Valez

Jenna Valez (she/they), RYT 500, is a Bay Area native with a professional background in contemporary dance. They have over 10 years of experience in performance, choreography, and teaching, a BA in psychology and are 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. They believe movement is for everyone as their 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). 

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