Real * Humble * Kind
My name is Jen Vallens. I am a writer and marketing professional with a passion for anything creative. My life is chess, yoga, art and music!
I recently published my third book BEYOND YOGA TEACHER TRAINING: How to Teach with Confidence available now on Amazon. I wrote this book to help newly certified yoga teachers build confidence.
When I am not writing or leading a hot yoga class at CorePower Yoga, you can find me at the North Ranch Center.

WILL THE REAL YOGI PLEASE STAND UP
A FUN AND PLAYFUL POKE AT YOGA TEACHERS
Author and Yoga teacher Jen Vallens teams up with Illustrator Ché Dyer in WILL THE REAL YOGI PLEASE STAND UP to showcase the many personalities of Yoga teachers. From the Billy Banger to the OM-M-G, she cleverly pokes fun at Yoga teacher stereotypes in a light and playful way while warmly reminding the reader that we are all flawsome and should celebrate who we are, quirks and all.
HOW TO YOGA: YOGA CRASH COURSE
If you have been skeptical and think Yoga is just "not for you", please read HOW TO YOGA: yoga crash course. Yoga is for everyone!
"Jen Vallens has written a brief and delightful guide to help anyone get started in yoga. She has taken the mystery out of a mysterious practice and offers a practical guide so a student can feel comfortable from the first day on the mat. I recommend this book if you are just getting started in yoga, or if you are curious about the many iterations of the practice."
