Jennifer Cohen Harper

Jennifer-CH-100Jennifer is a native New Yorker and has always aspired to be an educator. Discovering yoga in early adulthood, Jennifer found that as her yoga practice grew more consistent she was imbued with a renewed sense of confidence, inner-strength and a desire to meet new challenges, whether in class or in life. Before founding Little Flower Yoga she spent eight years studying and practicing Jivamukti yoga, while continuing to develop her education career and working with children in a variety of settings including a domestic violence shelter, an after-school girls group, and an alternative therapy program for children with physical challenges. Jennifer’s Masters Degree in Education and Youth Development, from New York University’s Gallatin School, culminated in a thesis on the use of yoga in education settings. She graduated from Boston University with a BA in Public Policy, focusing on education and healthcare.

In 2009 Jennifer became a founding member of the Yoga Service Council, and serves as it’s current Board Vice President and Conference Coordinator. She is also an active member of the International Association of Yoga Therapy and a registered Yoga Alliance Teacher. Jennifer’s inner child lies just below the surface. Children love her willingness to indulge in mutual silliness, while also appreciating the genuine respect that she has for her students of all ages.
