Urban Lotus Project
Jennifer Duvall - ULP Teacher
"I read Autobiography of Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda in 2008. That book brought so much light into my life while I was going through a very dark time. After reading that book I promised myself that to the best of my ability I would live beautifully and do things that would make me feel how that book made me feel. I became a student of Yogananda and started meditating and practicing yogic breathing. Shortly after I was invited to a yoga class by Harijiwan. The class was magnificent! So I kept practicing the postures and meditation. In 2014 I became certified to teach yoga with Kimberlee Orenstein and also became a certified yogic numerologist, studying akara numerology under Nam Hari for 3 years.
Yoga became a way that I felt like I could give back to my community. I knew I wanted to volunteer my time but didn’t know what I could offer until yoga unfolded in my life. Urban Lotus Project is a blessing and a necessity to our future. I am humbled and grateful to be able to serve through ULP.
In my free time I like to read, pretend I am a mermaid at Pyramid Lake and make children’s clothes."
My Mantra: When in doubt, err on the side of peace and kindness.
