Jennifer Toutant - "You are far too smart to be the only thing standing in your way"
Originally From: Fort McMurray, AB
Jennifer is E-RYT200 and RPYT Certified and was born and raised right here in Fort McMurray. While pregnant with her second child, Jennifer found herself taking weekly prenatal yoga classes at one of the local gyms. She quickly realized the positive influence yoga was having on her pregnancy so when she happened upon a prenatal teacher training she decided to take it, thinking it would compliment her work as a doula. It turns out that yoga teacher training would change her life as it set her on a path to dig deeper into yoga’s teachings.
Not long after, Jennifer completed her 200HR yoga teacher training and graduated in May 2014 from the South Okanagan Yoga Academy (SOYA). She’s also since completed training in Curvy Yoga and Children’s Yoga and is a Certified Lifestyle Meditation Teacher (for Adults & Kids). As the owner of Shine Kids Fitness in Fort McMurray, Jennifer spends most of her time sharing the gift of yoga and mindfulness with children and families. When she’s not teaching kids, you can find her balancing our yang lifestyles by teaching gentle, yin-style classes. Her favourite class to offer is Restorative Yoga & Meditation for all the hardworking people in Fort McMurray. Jennifer is excited to share her wisdom and kindness with people who might think they’re unable to practice yoga because they don’t fit the part. She loves inspiring people of all shapes and sizes to have the courage to walk into the yoga studio, get on their mat and just breathe…because that IS yoga...and we all gotta start somewhere!
