Jennie Lee is an author, teacher and speaker specializing in Classical Yoga, Meditation and Mindfulness. For over 20 years she has bridged the universal ideals and practices of Eastern philosophy with the needs and challenges of modern Western living. Her new book, TRUE YOGA: Practicing with the Yoga Sutras for Happiness and Spiritual Fulfillment offers readers guidance in using yogic tools to improve daily life.
Known for living what she teaches, Lee’s counsel is based on studies in Body-Centered Psychotherapy, Spiritual Psychology, Yoga Philosophy and Meditation. She is a Certified Yoga Therapist, Certified Process Therapist and Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher at the 500 level. Lee founded the Stillness in Motion Studio for Yoga & Wellness in Newburyport, MA in 2002 where, for 10 years, she offered a full array of weekly classes and workshops.
For the past 7 years, she has been writing and coaching privately in Hawai’i for clients who wish to improve their lives through holistic methods. A featured expert on Yoga and Meditation, Lee’s writing is currently spotlighted on Huffington Post, Mind Body Green, Yoga Digest, Yoga Therapy Today, Yogi Times, Gaia, and other wellness related blogs.

Lee’s personal application of Yoga and Meditation to life challenges began when she lost her second child at birth, was facing divorce, living in an unfamiliar region of the country without friends, and needed income ASAP while trying to be present for her 3 year old son. She had nowhere to go except to her practice and when she opened her yoga studio, she began to notice that all the students who came to her, were there for more than just a physical workout. She saw that everyone was craving a deeper understanding of their life experiences, and a way to find true purpose. To meet this need, she began combining techniques from her Master’s work in Spiritual Psychology with the practices taught in the Yoga Sutras.

Now, she is a testament to the fact that Yoga holds the keys to getting through the difficult times in life and our ability to emerge from them in joy and meaning. Lee offers yearly international retreats. Retreat themes have included Yoga Philosophy and Creative Imagination; The Eight Limbs of Yoga; The Yoga of Love and Devotion; Conscious Trust; Steps to Consciousness; Authenticity and Wellness; Conquering Fear;  and Opening to More Joy. In February 2017, she will be hosting The Heart of True Yoga Retreat at a luxury resort in Mexico focused on the topic of her book, True Yoga. Lee is a skilled resource for individuals and groups that recognize the need for a proactive wellness initiative, and who are committed to supporting this through preventative health care measures that increase internal well-being, connectivity and productivity.

She provides interactive presentations and counsel for organizational leaders, who are striving for personal congruity and well-being in their lives, and an understanding of how these affect longevity and fulfillment. The diversity of professionals who have entrusted Lee with their process of personal growth speaks to her ability to effectively touch a wide range of individuals. Doctors, lawyers, psychologists, celebrity actors, financial analysts, restaurant owners, bank officers, Marines, educators, entrepreneurs, internationally acclaimed authors, and more have experienced positive change through working with Lee.

Celebrity yoga clients Include Emily Blunt, Rachel McAdams, Gloria Cooper, and Dr. Keith Ablow. In addition to individual coaching, Lee has spoken to management groups at corporations such as Seattle Study Club, Draper Laboratory, Prudential Locations Realty, and The Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center and made presentations on yoga, meditation and mindfulness for the National Association for Professional Women, Social Wahines, Hawaii Yoga Festival, Aloha Yoga Kula, Open Space Yoga, as well as radio shows and studios nationwide.
