Along with her business partner, Ross Corson, Jenni opened Evolutions in 2008 aimed with a focus to Serve People. Before that, Jenni was busy studying the ancient wisdoms of the yogis, digging into the past and looking for a light of truth among the pages of magical books which spoke the words of teachers who had long since departed this earth, preserving their words for future generations of teachers to find. She was intrigued by yoga and the beauty of the body in the various poses from childhood. But it may not be the same beauty of the body you are thinking of right now.
She was blown away by the beauty of old, toothless sadhus (holy men) from India. They wore rags for a loincloth, their skin was dark and weathered like leather. Their hair was matted and rolled on top of their heads like towering beehives, and their bones protruded the surface of the skin making them look like walking skeletons. But it was in their eyes that spoke their ancient truth, they were filled with a love that was endless. One that held no judgement, no sense of better than, and always there when you just needed someone to smile at you. It was then that Jenni began a lifelong process of this thing we call yoga.
