We believe yoga is a life-altering journey, not just a physical practice, an opportunity to find your authentic self. We hope your practice will foster the love, peace and light that already exists within so that you can let it shine outside the walls of the studio. 

We love our Bench Neighborhood Yoga Studio and aim to create a sense of health and wellbeing for all of our wonderful neighbors. We offer classes, workshops and services that nourish our community and it's members. 

This yoga is for everyBODY! Let's start a Zen RIOT!

JENN CRAWFORD

Yoga Instructor, Intuitive Energy Guide

Jenn Crawford is a certified Yoga instructor and owner of Zen Riot Studio. She aims to create a community that is united by leading healthy, happy, body positive lifestyles. The motto at Zen Riot is "Yoga for Every Body", and it is something Jenn is very passionate about. Yoga is not about putting your body into shapes, it is about taking your body and mind out of the shapes that society and the modern world has put you in and creating space inside to foster, honor, and grow the love within. Jenn hopes to lead a practice that feeds the soul through body and breath awareness, and to emphasize that the physical postures themselves are a way to nourish the vehicle our soul travels in. Jenn is a 500 E-RYT and a Continuing Education provider as well as a Reiki Master and Bodyworker.  Jenn offers Integrative Healing Sessions and Therapeutic Bodywork at the studio. She looks forward to meeting, practicing with, and guiding the wonderful people in the neighborhood!

SANDRA WOOD

Yoga Instructor, Women’s Transformation Coach 

Sandra is a 200RYT certified instructor trained through the Kundalini Research Institute. Yoga has been a part of her routine in some form or another for much of her adult life.  Sandra is excited to be a part of the Zen Riot community that embraces everyBODY and everyone. She strives to help students feel calm and self nurturing through yoga, meditation and mantra practices. She loves using the concept of integration and embodiment of the mind, body and soul into each practice because of how easy it is to be disconnected from ourselves in our modern culture. She is a certified life coach and has been helping women navigate challenges for over seventeen years. Sandra offers support groups and personalized coaching for women of all backgrounds who are going through difficult life transitions to have less anxiety, feel better and be more confident. Sandra is also a writer and in her spare time loves to spend time with her family or hike in the Boise foothills. She has two adult daughters (that she is tremendously proud of), one very active grandson and lives with her best friend who happens to be her husband.

LINDSAY CROWTHER

Yoga Instructor

Lindsay Crowther is a sage of spirit and science. She couples metaphysical healing systems with modern research-backed science to identify misalignment in the mind, body, and spirit. As a registered yoga and meditation teacher and experienced Akashic record reader, Lindsay’s courses and programs create a nurturing space to discover the whole self.

 

As the founder of The Big Ass Yoga Class, Lindsay creates space for women of all sizes to form deep, meaningful connections to their bodies. Her small group and 1:1 online programs use modern science and ancient energetic philosophy to heal limiting beliefs, past trauma, and negative karmas while cultivating a deep and unwavering sense of self. 

 

Lindsay uses the Chakra system as a roadmap to both deep healing and intention creation. It is within the energetic body that all things are created or not created. 

 

You can catch Lindsay leading movement at Zen Riot on Thursday nights, or to get on the wait list for the next Big Ass Yoga Class, click here https://www.lindsaycrowther.com/mobile-connect

RACHAEL BARRON

Yoga Instructor

Rachael’s yoga journey started 13 years ago with the desire to connect with her body after the birth of her son. It took her a few years of home practice before working up the courage to go to an in-studio class. She has been a student at Zen Riot for five years prior to completing her 200 HR YTT. When not in the studio she can be found in the laboratory where she works as a scientist in the field of agriculture. She advocates for wellness and mindfulness in the workplace and brings the practice of yoga to her coworkers by teaching regular lunchtime sessions.

FERRYN LOGAN

Yoga Instructor

I have a PASSION, for MOVEMENT… for LIFE I discovered my passion for yoga as a teen but really began to have a regular practice and a desire to teach and share that passion in 2018. A Career Photographer & Art Teacher, my life changed as many others had during 2020 and I hung up my camera and canvas to begin to pursue my dream of becoming a Yoga Instructor. I find peace, spirituality and personal growth in my personal practice and want to help others find their inner strength and passion as well. After becoming a 200 RYT I continued my education with a fresh desire to learn, concentrating in Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Chair Yoga & Children’s Yoga areas of study. I am a naturalist who enjoys the study of holistic health solutions, nutrition and I create clean, green eco friendly products in my free time. I LOVE to read and learn. I have three amazing children and one sweet corgi that have my whole heart. I dream of my own homestead someday to practice yoga among my flowers with nature all around me and animals at my feet.

JOHANNA SCHANBACHER

Yoga Instructor

Johanna places a strong emphasis on your responsibility to be an active participant in your health journey. Physical Therapy (PT) is more than recovering from injury or illness. In working with Johanna, you will learn tools and methods to maximize your body’s potential and improve your quality of life. Yoga has many interpretations; but effectively, works through synthesis of body, mind, and soul, to create a pleasant internal environment. Johanna works to bring together these two complementary worlds of PT and yoga, guiding you to shift your life in a positive direction. She collaborates with and empowers you, as the client, to design a plan of care to fit your goals and lifestyle.

In 2019, Johanna found yoga… or really, it found her. Realizing that yoga was far more than a physical practice, she enrolled in RYT-200 level training, to deepen her understanding of yogic philosophies and lifestyle. She then completed the RYT-500 hour Ayurvedic Science and Yoga program through ZenSpot to continue on her life-long path of learning. As she continues down her own scenic route of discovery and exploration, she would love to work with you, on finding yours.

JESSE JARVIS

Yoga Instructor

Jesse J. Jarvis was raised in Massachusetts, attended college in Florida, lived and worked in New York, and moved to California where she changed the course of her life. In 2016, she left her comfortable corporate job as a large-scale event planner to travel to Rishikesh, India, where she became certified as a yoga instructor—and she’s never looked back.
Over the course of the past four years, Jesse has completed several continuing education courses, including Kidding Around Yoga® Kids Yoga, meditation and mindfulness, yoga biomechanics, yoga nidra teacher training, and several online workshop modules relating to anatomy and breathing practices. She established herself as a yoga instructor living in San Francisco by guiding public, office, and kids classes around the Bay Area for two and a half years. In 2018, Jesse moved to Boise with her partner since college days, Jeff. She is excited to share her learnings and practice with as many people as she can reach.
Mindful awareness has been a part of Jesse’s life from a very young age, and she is grateful to be able to hone in on her awareness as life continues, as well as share with her students.
Jesse is excited to bring a Family Mindfulness practice to Source, where she will share her knowledge of meditation, mindful awareness, and self-love with all who walk through the doors.
For Jesse, the word “family” is not linear. Everyone is welcome to her classes as they are—with kids, cousins, friends, partners, roommates, or simply as an individual—where they will use their senses and learn how to more mindfully connect with themselves and others.
Let’s be mindful, together.
