Jen Bluestone

Location: Raleigh, NC Level: RYT-500 Studio(s): Blue Lotus
Meet Jen. Mom, teacher, dog lover, goof ball, friend. Jen grew up as a dancer and swimmer and was always active, spending lots of time outdoors. She attended The Pennsylvania State University, graduated in 1995 and has called Raleigh home ever since. 

Jen became a mom in 2003, the same year her mother was diagnosed with stage 3-C ovarian cancer. She had been taking yoga classes here and there, but found refuge and peace in the practice as she juggled taking care of her sick mother and nursing and caring for her newborn daughter. By 2005, Jen was practicing normally with her second daughter in her belly and was fully in love with yoga. When her daughters Sofia and Eliana were 3 and 5 years old, she began looking for kids yoga classes for them and came up empty. So she decided to become a teacher herself. She is a registered children's yoga teacher (RCYT) and completed trainings with Karma Kids in NYC, YogaKids and Mini Yogis. She found a new friend and teacher in studio owner, Carson Efird, who gave her the chance to begin teaching kids, which continues to thrive today. Jen loves to teach kids in studio, school, camp or birthday party settings. 

In 2008, she was so inspired by the teaching of Carson Efird, that she became a Registered Yoga Teacher in Carson's program, which is now a Prana Flow Yoga Affiliate Program through Shiva Rea's Samudra Global Living Yoga School. 

Jen completed her 300 hour teacher training under the brilliant Shiva Rea and now is a RYT-500.

Jen currently teaches at Blue Lotus and in her home studio, all located in Raleigh, NC. Private instruction is also available in her home studio, as well as many weekend classes and monthly workshops.

Jen continues to draw inspiration from her two most inspiring gurus, her daughters Sofia, 11 and Eliana, 9. Life would not be complete without their glowing spirits.
