    "I truly enjoyed the yoga retreat with Jen. We had the chance to practice different styles of yoga but there was also a lot of meditiation and personal development. The villa was very nice and the food was excellent. Jen has been looking at all details to make sure we all had a great experience, and I thought the week was very well organized. As a yoga beginner, there was a lot I could bring home, especially the desire to start practicing regularly. I have a smile in my face whenever I think about the retreat."

    "Jen’s classes have a connection that allow us to share her gift and her light for yoga. Classes are physically and spiritually rewarding and I would highly recommend them for all levels. I’ve yet to find another teacher that provides the same balance and harmony as Jen. She shines. I am very grateful to have shared her guidance."

    "I attended Jen’s Lanzarote Retreat and I had very few expectations of this retreat as I had no knowledge of this island to speak of prior to going there. I have to say the island is beautiful and the yoga with Jen is life changing and inspirational. She not only is a great teacher of the various asanas, she expands your thinking and confidence each time and teaches in such a way that you gain knowledge of yoga and how it has evolved too."

    "My favourite activity apart from the yoga was the surfing day. We all had so much fun and learnt so much with our wonderful instructor Peppe. The long, straight waves breaking and lapping the shore against the backdrop of the volcanoes was spectacular."

    "I would highly recommend this retreat in Lanzarote with Jen, it was inspirational and the landscape also adds an indefinable element that one has to experience for oneself."

    "What a treat for Jen Warakomski to enter my life! After completing my Reiki Level One Training, I felt so much richer in terms of my self awareness."

    " Anyone can take a Reiki Course, even if you do not have any idea what Reiki is from the beginning. Jen answers everything you ask her about in such a good & understandable style. Her teachings compare the information with things you really can relate to, and it was very easy for me to learn. Her methods also encourage you to ask any kind of questions and leave you hungry to learn even more."

    "Jen has such a warm personality & desire to make us aware of our own importance in this world, and in this life."

    "I also attended a private study course in Tuscany with Jen. She created a custom learning program where I could take time to study, practice and also spend time enjoying La Dolce Vita in Tuscany."

    "No day was the same and I always had time to explore both myself and experience the sites, sounds and tastes of Italy. Jen had scheduled my stay to be “the best of both worlds”-I learned more in depth details about yoga, practiced yoga & meditation daily and also had a vacation!"

    "Even though we live in different countries, Jen continues to keep in touch with me & guide, advise & help me keep going with my practices. I feel I can reach out to her no matter what. "

    "Everyone should have “a Jen” in their life."

    ""Jen Yoga Joy". I've been practicing Yoga for many years and for this very reason I'd like to say that it's been a total Joy to have met Jen. It's not often that you come across such a soothing & effective method of teaching yoga. She has her own creative way of being mindful & soft, yet pushes your boundaries ever so gently that she takes you beyond your own expectations. I cherish her classes and love the variation of styles that she offers."

    "The opportunity to practice with Jen is a yogic gift! Jen's sessions bring together movement, breath, spirituality, and philosophy. She teaches with a fresh and easy interpretation of Yoga, so her sessions are ideal for both novice and experienced practitioner. She pays attention to each person in her class and both praises and advises in equal measure. Jen radiates an energy and warmth that is infectious. After each Yoga practice I felt both calm and energized. Highly recommended."

    "Jen was my first yoga teacher and I probably will always think of her as my one and only tutor. Kind hearted and dedicated to her students practice and wellbeing, I can not recommend her enough if you are considering taking a class or attending one of her retreats. Jen has a special way of connecting with all of her students and is not adverse to change. Alternative options for beginners and more advanced students are always included in class, where both parties feel welcome and challenged."

    "Genuine Yogic Spirit! My husband and I have practiced yoga for many years in different parts of the world. While we were living in Tuscany, we were delighted to take classes with Jen. Her experience level, especially coming from a New York background, clearly put her in the league of seasoned practitioners. We also appreciated her spiritual consciousness. Her classes were very engaging and challenging."

    "More than a yoga instructor! I have been practicing yoga with Jen for almost 6 months now. I enjoy each and every class for many reasons... I'm not only learning the physical aspects of yoga, I am learning SO.MUCH.MORE! She has taught me about ancient traditions, helps me to keep my mind clear and to think in much more positive way. She's very welcoming and down to earth. She's truly a kind soul and I recommend trying a class with her if you have the chance!"

    "Great teacher! Jen is truly a wonderful teacher. I've been practicing yoga and meditation in her class for over a year now and it is always a joy. Jen is incredibly warm and kind, and devoted to creating a safe and caring environment for her students. She accommodates all types of students and has created a lovely community of yoginis. I always feel comfortable during class and strong and centered upon leaving. Cannot recommend highly enough!"

    "Jen is the best yoga teacher I have come across in over a decade of living in Italy. She has already helped me deepen my practice in significant and important ways. Jen is caring, generous, tranquil, engaging, clear, down-to-earth and relatable, while at the same time extremely professional. One private session of yoga with her- feels like getting twenty group classes at another studio. After practicing with her I always feel entirely rejuvenated. I am unspeakably grateful that she is teaching here in Tuscany."

    "After many failed attempts at a consistent yoga routine, I have finally found a class I can and will stick to. This is due to Jens focus, energy, and teaching. She calmly and gently guides the class through body opening poses all the while reminding us to breathe which is something we all forget to do. I feel energized, strong, and focused at the end of every session and look forward to the next one instead of dreading yoga as I had in the past. I also had a Reiki session with Jen. She expertly addressed the problem areas I was dealing with in my chakras while finding other places on her own to help heal and open that I did not even realize I was dealing with. Her energy was tangible from the moment she began and I felt electrified and safe all at once under her care. My biggest issue was a hiccup in my deep breathing and Jen tenderly led me to the issue, helped me address it, and gave me the final push I needed to let it go. I felt a closure and peace that I had been seeking for quite a while. I highly recommend Jens Reiki private sessions."

    "I did a retreat with Jen in Tuscany. It was a great week. I could focus all my attention on my yoga practice. Jen is a very precise and attentive teacher. I decided to work on my core and shoulders this week, but I learnt a lot about plenty of other topics to increase my confidence and the effectiveness of my practice. We were encouraged and empowered to address self-care and how to keep this practice with us in daily life. If Jen holds retreats again in Europe, Ill find the time to participate. I already recommend this week to my friends who know that they should take care of themselves but struggle to make it real in their daily life. I think people with any yoga level can benefit from such a week. Everyone can benefit from a practice that explores more depth, precision and slowing down to balance his or her karma."

    "My 7-day retreat experience with Jen Warakomski was one that I will always cherish. The retreat I attended was held in Tuscany at a property just outside of the city walls of Lucca. The villa itself was beautiful and serene which created a wonderful atmosphere for an escape and respite from the regular day-to-day activities of our lives. It also matched Jens style of teaching yoga, which is both challenging and relaxing. Generally speaking, Jen has a very kind and gentle style, which is welcoming for a yoga beginner, but equally challenging for an advanced student. Her retreat is relevant to anyone looking to attend to his or her physical and mental health. The schedule of the retreat was well planned - our schedule had 2 hours active yoga in the morning hours and 2 hours of a more relaxing, restorative yoga in the evening. During the day we went on walks, hiking, biking, or simply read and relaxed during our free time. In the new and trendy yoga world, there are many yoga teachers, however, I believe that Jens interest in yoga is not a fad, but one that she studies and shares with a sincere passion. She is knowledgeable and has studied yoga from both the physical and mental aspects. I hope to attend another retreat hosted by Jen and would encourage anyone who is interested to make time for this wonderful experience!"

    "I loved every single minute of my retreat and classes in Costa Rica. Jen is an amazing teacher with a really positive and soothing energy. The classes were well thought out, had a great flow and excellent music choices! It was my first experience with restorative yoga, and after busy adventurous days in Costa Rica with morning Vinyasa, surfing, hiking, it was perfection to take Jens restorative class to unwind after the day. I came back from the retreat feeling more centered, more confident, and happy! I wish I could go on a retreat like this monthly! I plan to attend more of Jens retreats in the future, when I can. Since I consider myself new at yoga, Jens classes seemed great for all levels. I was totally comfortable the entire class and she was great walking around helping to adjust and assist students throughout. I would also recommend Jens retreats to experienced yoga practitioners, the classes were set up so you could stay in poses or deepen poses accordingly."

    "I participated in a yoga retreat in Costa Rica and had the fortunate opportunity to participate in restorative yoga classes taught by Jen. After each class I felt rejuvenated and inspired. I would highly recommend a retreat or classes with Jen whether you are a new beginner to yoga or already an experienced yoga practitioner."
