Meet Jen

Shine Yoga founder & yoga teacher

Jen Austin is the vibrant and joyful founder of Shine Yoga – leading yoga retreats in the most beautiful places around the world.

She teaches inspiring and uplifting yoga classes with careful sequencing in a joyful atmosphere. Known for her ability to break down challenging poses to make them more accessible, offering something creative and different in every class, providing illuminating assists and smiling through the most challenging of core work. She encourages you to be courageous and kind to yourself so you can SHINE.

She is passionate about travel and journeyed to the birthplace of yoga, Rishikesh, a holy city on the banks of the Ganges in India to study traditional Hatha Yoga and gain her 200hr RYT certification.  After her teacher training she continued to teach and practice whilst traveling the world and experiencing many different styles and methods of yoga. After trekking through the Himalayas she studied meditation in Nepal, and in Chiang Mai Northern Thailand she trained in Thai Yoga Massage. She is also trained in Yin Yoga with Sarah Lo.

Her love of travel led her to hunt out the most beautiful locations and stunning accommodation from which to run unique yoga retreats for travel and fun loving yogis.  A beach lover and keen surfer Jen is based in Cornwall. She introduced Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga classes to Cornwall and loves to teach this new, challenging and exhilarating style.
