Experience

Jen Brown Yogasana Fitness Belconnen Canberra YogaSince 1995, I have practised yoga with dedicated senior Iyengar teachers both in Australia and the US. But I have also done a multitude of trainings beyond this. Unfortunately, I only started keeping a record of these trainings since 2014. Nevertheless, I hope it will interest you to know that I am forever evolving as a teacher and that like you, I too, am still a student of yoga.
