Jenniferlyn Chiemingo

Hello! My name is Jenniferlyn, but I’m known affectionately by my students and friends as JL. I teach weekly yoga classes in the Bay Area and lead intimate life-changing yoga retreats around the World. I’m also probably one of the most fun-loving, open-hearted humans you'll ever meet.

Through practicing yoga on the mat and in life, my goal is to provide you with the opportunity to experience genuine joy, love, and connection. My unique teaching style is a creation of my own and an experience all will benefit from. My classes are flowing, grounded, joyful, loving, spiritual, and inspiring.

When you step away from one of my energizing Vinyasa or restorative yoga classes, you will feel more connected to yourself, and the World around you. I offer loving support to those new to yoga, while continually challenging my regular students to find greater depths in their practice.

I first experienced yoga in 2000 when I was looking for a way to escape the daily stress of my job as a TV news producer in Northern California. That was when yoga started to change my life. Overcome by the power and benefits of yoga, I decided to move my career from the newsroom to the yoga mat in 2002.

With curiosity and ambition, I followed my dream and began training at Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health with an emphasis in Integrative Yoga Therapy. I continued training with Shiva Rea, embracing Vinyasa yoga and fully experiencing the powerful energizing, cleansing, and calming effects of linking breath with movement.

I’m E-RYT certified with Yoga Alliance and I’ve been teaching for over 20 years in Seattle and the Bay Area. For the past 15 years, I’ve also been leading international yoga retreats, visiting exciting locations such as Bali, Iceland, Kenya, and the Galapagos Islands — just to name a few.
