Meet Jen

Shine Yoga founder & yoga teacher

Hi I’m Jen Austin.  I live by the beach in Newquay, Cornwall and more often than not have sandy feet and tangled hair. I surf a little and read a lot. I teach yoga and I love to travel. I eat a lot of avocados. I love to cook and I’m pretty sure my raw raspberry brownies are the most popular thing I’ve ever made. I also cuddle every puppy I see until the owner wrestles it off of me!

I create yoga classes that are filled with fun and laughter, joy and inspiration.

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 traditional Hatha Yoga in Rishikesh, a small town the banks of the Ganges and at the base of the Himalayas, in India, where I got my 200hr RYT certification. Waking up at 4.30am, torrential rain, innumerable monkeys, cows that ruled the road, and the most delicious dal I’ve ever eaten all added to this incredible learning experience. After my teacher training I continued to teach and practice whilst traveling the world and experiencing many different styles and methods of yoga. After trekking through the Himalayas I studied meditation in Nepal, and in Chiang Mai Northern Thailand I trained in Thai Yoga Massage. I’m also 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, drinking turmeric lattes, dreaming up heathy vegetarian recipes and planning yoga classes filled with as much joy and fun as possible.
