Get to know Jenna & Megan
Jenna is a Charlotte native, who loves to try new things. Her love and interest in yoga came from a friend convincing her to try hot yoga few years ago. She quickly found a balance at Arrichion Hot Yoga between the hot yoga and circuit training that she loved. After experiencing such a transformation physically and mentally, she decided to extend her knowledge and practice through teacher training.
From there, she received her 200-hour certification, and then continued on to receive her 500-hour certification, studying under Quinn Reynolds. Jenna loves teaching and connecting with students, in order to encourage them and learn from them. She hopes that her classes inspire students to be their best on and off their mat.
After college, Magen moved from Upstate New York to Charlotte and decided to try a local yoga class for the first time. What she discovered was a well rounded workout that provided physical fitness, mental clarity, and a sense of community. She also left classes feeling empowered and energized, and as she puts it, become hooked. Yoga for her became more than a hobby and is now a way of life. Wanting to share this experience with others, she began working on her 200 RYT under the instruction of Quinn Reynolds at Arrichion Hot Yoga and has since completed her 500 RYT.
Furthering her education, she has also received a certification to teach Prenatal Yoga, and has studied under the instruction of Diane Cevallos at Charlotte Family Yoga Center. Through it all, Yoga has become an integral part of her life and something that she enjoys sharing with others through her instruction and personal practice. Magen became a mother to a beautiful baby girl, London Genevieve in December 2014. Her and her husband, Cory are expecting their second child in July.
