Izzy Jenkins

Isabel began practicing yoga after a prolonged foot injured forced her to take a break from her training as a contemporary ballet dancer. Using yoga as an education on emotional, physical, and spiritual wellness, she was able to recover from her injury and pursued her RYT certification. She now holds her 500hr RYT and has been teaching since the summer of 2016. Her style as an instructor is inspired by a passion for movement and self discovery, incorporating alignment techniques as taught by her teachers Darren Rhodes, Stephani Lindsey, Sam Rice, Christina Sell, and Noah Maze. With a passion in women’s health education and empowerment, Isabel also works in Asheville as a birth and postpartum doula. She’s currently studying to be a Lamaze childbirth educator, an Ayurvedic wellness counselor, and a Khalsa Way prenatal teacher. Using asana, pranayama, and meditation as an introduction into the practice of yoga, she hopes to insight in her students a thirst for deeper inquisition into what the practice has to offer.
