Yoga Instructor: Jennifer Miller

How many of you out there have said who heard someone say they wish they could sleep better, had fewer colds, feel more relaxed and at ease, or just want to slow down? As it happens, Western science is starting to provide some concrete clues as to how yoga works to improve health, heal aches and pains, and keep sickness at bay.  Once you understand them, you'll have even more motivation to grab a mat and give it a try. Jennifer Miller experienced yoga's healing power in a very real way.

Born in Warren, Ohio on July 22, 1987 Miller was greatly influenced and encouraged by her parents in all aspects of life.  She was driven to excel, graduating from Howland High School in 2005.  She was especially interested in science and lived a life focused on health and fitness.  She then went on to college at Youngstown State University to pursue her lifetime goal to become a registered nurse.  Miller graduated in 2010 with a Bachelors of Science in Nursing.  With a passion and calling to serve others combined with her education obtained in nursing school, it was only a matter of time before yoga came calling upon Miller's life.

After years of playing sports, Miller landed a dislocated shoulder in the summer of 2010.  Physicians explained the only solution was surgery due to a torn labrum.  Listening to her instinct, Miller held off on surgery and went on the hunt for less invasive measures to solve her problem.  In early 2013, after suffering from numerous dislocations, she found yoga.  Yoga not only mended her physically (the shoulder, which is now stronger then ever) but also healed her mentally and spiritually.  She has so much gratitude and love for the yoga practice because of her new outlook on life and physical health.  She has become a more positive, peaceful, accepting, aware, and loving person.

Over this past summer, Miller obtained teachers training in Mexico in Power Yoga and is now perusing her 200 hr teachers training which will be completed in 2014.  Having the opportunity to share this yoga practice with these amazing and talented swimmers is such a blessing to her.  A gift and experience she will be forever grateful for.
