Hi! I’m Jen James of Celestial Yoga, LLC
I am a Registered Yoga Teacher and wellness ambassador with more than 15 years of experience working with children and adults.
My yogic journey began in adulthood when I sought relief for various back and neck issues I had developed over the years. It was through regular practice that I enjoyed the many benefits that yoga offered not only my body – but my mind and soul.
My journey continued as I sought out Teacher Training and have since garnered extensive experience working with others who have suffered various health difficulties. Along this path, I’ve learned how to support true wellness for myself and others using safe, effective techniques in yoga.
As a strong believer in Gentle Yoga, I have a true passion for sharing this gift with others and strive to do so by continually adding to my extensive education and training through institutions accredited through the Yoga Alliance. I currently hold:
• Certified Health & Wellness Coach (2018)
• 500 hr. Certified Yoga Teacher Training (2017)
• Pre/Post Natal Yoga Teacher Training (2011)
• Beginner and Advanced Pilates Instructor Training (2009)
• 36 hr. Certified Children’s Yoga Teacher Training (2005)
• 200 hr. Certified Yoga Teacher Training (2003)
I also frequently volunteer my time as a Guest Speaker and Demonstrator at many local community and senior homes, medical centers, and schools.
My educational influencers have been trained in Iyengar, Kripalu and Anusara Yoga. This has helped me develop my own unique blend of Hatha Yoga, also referred to as “Gentle Yoga”. In my approach, I emphasize alignment and breath, but do not push yoga philosophy. My style is a mix of positivity and general spirituality – not religion.
My Yoga Classes, Workshops and Private Yoga Sessions are offered at eZential Wellness Center in Branchburg PLUS ON-LINE.
I am Continuing Education Provider for Yoga Teachers and am now a Certified Health & Wellness Coach

Through my practice, I’ve learned to balance my hormones, increase my mental clarity, tone my body, increase my strength and lose weight and inches.
