Founding Co-Operative Member
Jenny Segail started doing yoga over 17 years ago as a solution to her lower back and neck issues. Using a combination of massage and yoga, she found that yoga helped to strengthen her body, improving her flexibility and ultimately improving her pain. Her journey opened up a world that she never expected.
She found that yoga calmed her mind and helped with the stresses of daily life. It fitted in well with her Vegan lifestyle. Jenny is very passionate about healthy eating and uses diet to heal the body and extend longevity. She has always connected with exercise and from a young age attended ballet, tap and jazz classes.
She has studied yoga with Judy Krupp, John Ogilvie, Geoff Brooks, Fabio Fabbri, Yolande Hyde, Christina Pateras and Lucy Andrews, as well as doing numerous intensive workshops along the way. She has been privileged to do workshops with Donna Farhi, Mark Whitwell and Lesley Kaminoff and regularly visits John Ogilvie’s and Geoff Brooks’s Studios in Byron Bay.
She did her Teacher Training through Byron Yoga. Jenny’s style of yoga is hatha based, with a strong influence on yoga poses that flow from one to the next, strengthening the body, improving core strength and quieting the mind. Students are encouraged to tap into their inner wisdom and make the practice their own.
Jenny qualified as a graphic designer and today runs her own business as an event decorator. She paints on the side and held her first art exhibition at Global Gallery in Paddington in 2011. Jenny teaches at the Avalon Yoga co-op as well as the Yoga and Health Collective in Mona Vale.
