Jen Fortin

Jen Fortin, E-RYT200, began her yoga journey in 2010 after the birth of her son. Yoga brought her a sense of peace and self-discovery that she had never experienced before. Jen knew very quickly that sharing yoga with others was going to be her life’s
passion.

While working on her personal training certification in 2014, Jen took a chance and added a Hatha Yoga teacher training to her radar. Quickly thereafter she began working with private clients for both yoga and general health and fitness. Jen was invited to work with the former professional soccer team, the Carolina Railhawks (now NCFC), focusing on yoga for athletes, including injury prevention, muscular recovery, breathwork, joint health, and improved flexibility and mobility.

In 2015, Jen decided to take her yoga for athletes teachings a step further and embarked on studying with Sage Rountree in Carrboro, North Carolina, completing her Yoga for Athletes teacher training. Soon after, Jen continued to learn under Sage and her team earning her RYT200 certification.

In the following years, she has worked with various collegiate athletic teams and a wide range of individual athletes from Crossfit to golfers and everything in between. Jen loves to work with athletes, but has also been known to dive into teaching a fun, strength-building power class; yoga for beginners; and a wide range of yoga fusion classes including ballet barre, suspension trainer flows, balance board yoga, yoga with weights, and more! Jen also leads local and international yoga retreats, and mentors and teaches in the 200hr Yoga Teacher Training Program at Anderson Yoga Center in Anderson, SC.
