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 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 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.
Jen is fab, she always has a beaming smile and she is so passionate about what she does. I leave every class feeling great, energised/relaxed/ toned/ flexible!!
Jen's personality is so naturally welcoming and her energy sublime.
Jen has a special ability to inspire you to just be, enjoy the yoga and push oneself just the right amount.
Jen led some of the best yoga practices I've experienced creating a fun, nurturing environment which allowed me to challenge myself and achieve poses I'd never previously had the confidence to try.
Jen made every single class enjoyable and positive. I loved Jen's teaching and look forward to being able to attend more sessions by her in the future as she made me feel empowered and strong and capable; even when I wasn't 'perfect' at something I always felt encouraged!
Jen is an amazing teacher, always making it an enjoyable class bringing her positivity, skills and creativity to each session which was such a treat to learn from her practice.
Jen is truly an inspiring teacher and she brings joy, peacefulness and energy to every class.
