Jenny Dowling (DYT, DPN, SHNS)
Welcome, I'm Jenny Dowling and I am the founder of Hands on Harmony Yoga, Health & Wellness. Let me tell you a little bit about myself and my journey.
In all, my yoga practice spans over 20 years and I have now experienced the joy of teaching for over 7 years. I am a qualified Yoga Teacher and I completed my training with The International School of Dru Yoga.
My work in yoga and wellbeing has led me down a winding and wonderful path and I have been lucky enough to be interviewed and featured in Om Yoga Magazine to recently teaching a sunkissed field full of people at Stonehenge Solstice Festival and even more adventures are around the corner!
I am proud to have won Spa & Wellness Awards Yoga Instructor Of The Year 2019 and been a finalist for Bolton Health & Wellbeing Awards 2019 and The Hive Awards.
I also hold diplomas in Meditation, Nutrition, Herbalism, Aromatherapy, Massage, Indian Head Massage and I am attuned to Reiki Master level. I have also completed Level 2 Counselling Concepts from Manchester College as I felt it important to develop my communication skills when helping and working with others.
I was first introduced to yoga at the age of 11 years old when I attended a class with my mother. Even then I was captivated by meditation, holistic living and the idea that we are more than just our physical form. My passion was ignited and throughout my teenage years I would explore different yoga disciplines, reiki and meditation.
I attended University and studied Law with Spanish. I enjoyed my university years immensely - my yoga practice serving me well during times of exam stress. Following graduation, I embarked on a career path in litigation. Whilst I found this intellectually stimulating, I always felt that something was missing and I was not being true to who I really was - I could not find my purpose at work. My yoga practice was strong and steady - providing me with a sense of truth and balance at a time when I felt lost. After four years of the legal profession I made the decision to say farewell. I followed my heart and my intuition founding Hands on Harmony in 2012 and in doing so I discovered my dharma. Building Hands on Harmony Yoga, Health & Wellness has been one of the most rewarding things I have ever done and I am very excited to see what the future brings.
As an experienced teacher with a caring and intuitive approach I can cater for whatever your needs and goals are. Whatever you are looking for, there will be a class or service suitable for you.
Everyone will be welcomed at my classes, workshops and retreats. No need to be "bendy", just come with an open mind, listen to your body and be true to yourself.
