Featured Photo: Chair Reverse Warrior Pose

Yoga teacher Jenni Salomon sent us this beautiful photo of her demonstrating Reverse Warrior pose using a chair. This energizing pose builds upper body strength and improves flexibility both in the hips and the sides of the body. To come into the pose, start by taking Warrior 2 pose on the chair. —Nina

Jenni Salomon, RYT200, retired from direct patient care due to having sustained a number of injuries over the course of a paramedic and fire service career. She continues to lecture locally and regionally, writes, teaches, and consults for a first responder continuing education company. In order to rehabilitate from her job-related injuries, Jenni began practicing yoga. She eventually obtained her 200-hour registered yoga teacher certification from Soma Yoga institute and has trained with the Veterans Yoga Project and Yoga For First Responders. She obtained her WPA instructor certificate and Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga training in Aruba at Island Yoga. Teaching yoga, specifically restorative and beginner and to trauma-sensitive populations has given Jenni the opportunity to continue to help people, just with fewer flashing lights and sirens.
