Jenny Thomas

Jenny has always had a passion for health and wellness. She first started practicing yoga in 2006 while working on her Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science, and was amazed by not only the physical, but the mental and emotional benefits of the practice. To share her love of yoga, she began teaching classes to the employees at Sandia National Laboratories in 2009. In early 2011, Jenny discovered her love for practicing in the heat when she tried Bikram yoga, which she practiced consistently for two years. Later, she also grew to love other forms of hot yoga. After completing her Master’s Degree in Exercise Science in 2013, Jenny completed her 200-hour Ayuryoga Teacher Training from the Ayurvedic Institute in early 2014. She continues to work full time at Sandia National Laboratories as a Health Educator and Fitness Professional to teach and promote healthy lifestyles.


Jenny Thomas instructs the following:
  • Restore 90
  • This 90 minute class is where a student goes to dial it way down. Expect a very relaxing experience in a warm, but not hot, room. Practitioners will use props to find full body relaxation in postures, allowing gravity to do its work. This is a fantastic balance for a vigorous practice, and also a great weekly class for anyone who has physical limitations.  Environment -- 80 degrees/30% humidity

  • Flow 75
  • In a flow class, postures are strung together in multiple series. As the name suggests, a practitioner can expect to “flow” from one posture to the next in this style of class, synchronizing the breath with the movements. The pace of this class is generally quicker than a static sequence, leaving less time for focus on form and alignment, but providing a vigorous cardiovascular workout. Expect up-tempo music and a more playful atmosphere. Generally, this wouldn’t be the best choice for your first yoga class, but new practitioners are always welcome. This is a great complement to a static practice because it offers variety in addition to greater focus on upper-body and core work. In the 60-minute version, expect to be on your feet almost the entire time. The 75-minute version will include a floor series. Environment – 98.6 degrees/70% humidity
