Meet Jen

Shine Yoga founder & yoga teacher

Hi I’m Jen Austin.  I teach yoga by the beach in Newquay, Cornwall. I love to surf, hike and cook. (I’m pretty sure my raw raspberry brownies are the most popular thing I’ve ever made.) 

I create yoga classes fun and feel-good yoga classes.

I love breaking down challenging poses to make them more accessible, offering something creative and different in every class and I have this annoying tendency to smile while making you do challenging core work 🙂  

I’ll always encourage you to be courageous and kind to yourself so you can SHINE your brightest.

I studied yoga in India, where I got my 200hr RYT certification. After my teacher training I continued to teach and practice whilst traveling the world and experiencing many different styles and methods of yoga. I trained in Yin Yoga (which I adore teaching and practicing) with Sarah Lo.

My love of travel has led me to hunt out the most beautiful locations and stunning accommodation from which to run unique yoga retreats for travel and fun loving yogis. Between retreats you’ll find me by the beach in Cornwall, dreaming up heathy plant based recipes and planning yoga classes filled with as much fun as possible.
