Playing with Archetypes | 5 Hour Immersion with Jen Breen
Apr 16, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm| $60 – $100
In yoga, we celebrate our wholeness and interconnectedness. Within the whole self, there are many “selves” or archetypes that we can choose to embody and glean insight from to live a more dynamic, spirited, and well-rounded life. In this 2 Day immersion, we will consider the archetypes of Mother and of Soul Friend to enhance our experience on and off the yoga mat. On day One we will focus our yoga practice on what we call Orienteering — using a metaphorical map to figure out where we are and where we want to go in our yoga practice. On day Two we take simple steps forward to befriend ourselves in a soulful and playful way.
Be prepared for lively practices, great conversation, and community connection. Jen will lead us through Hatha Yoga practices, meditations, pranayama and “easy does it” writing exercises.
The 5 hours are bankable towards Katonah Yoga Certification.
Jen will be integrating theory, practice, and experiences from her over 25 years of teaching yoga. She holds certification in Bikram Yoga, Hatha Flow Yoga with Erich Schiffman and most recently Katonah Yoga.
This is a “come as you are immersion” for anyone interested in feeling better and learning something to easily weave into our human life experience.

About the instructor: Jen Breen
I grew up in Seattle in a hippy, creative, curious, outdoor-loving family. During my teenage years my mother would walk around the house in aerobic clothes and drag me to a funky yoga class in a gym. Little did I know that this would become my life’s work and passion. I began studying yoga formally with Cintra Brown in Phoenix, AZ while teaching elementary school with Teach For America.
i appreciate how yoga helps me be more authentic, compassionate and aware. I use yoga to help me understand myself better which helps me understand others better. I appreciate that it’s a practice for life. My practice has given me tools to help me in life most especially as a wife and mother and a steward of this beautiful earth.
My inspirations and influences along the way are: my mom who values humility and who is quoted to say, “you aren’t as important as you think you are.” My dad who imparted wisdom through modeling a good life of balance and harmony and following your bliss. My sisters Kim and Heidi who are my best friends, advisors and truth tellers. My husband Tom who practices a yoga called “sense of humor” and my four little yet mighty teachers; Grace Cal Johnny and Kate. My yoga teachers; Cintra Brown who taught me the power of mantra and seeing students, Sharon Land who taught me about Daimon and finding one’s unique inner gift. Bikram for the power of asana, heat, discipline and sequencing. Erich Schiffmann for the power of meditation, listening, riding the edge and free form yoga. Katerina Wen for her devotion to the multi-dimensionality of yoga and her brave, authentic approach to teaching with depth and courage. Catherine Shainberg for my yearly tune ups in the potential of imagery to powerfully transform habits. Newest teacher of mine; Nevine Michaan of Katonah Yoga…an original and diverse teacher. And, lastly Mother Nature — the forest, the sea, the mountains and most of all the moss.
