My name is Jen Warakomski, and I’m passionate about guiding others towards creating clarity, healing, and fortitude in every aspect of their life.
I am a Yoga and Meditation teacher, Reiki Master Healer, Ayurvedic consultant, and wellness advocate. I’m also a New Yorker who happens to LOVE Italy, so I moved to Tuscany a few years ago.
My passion and mission are to help you embody the changes you have always wanted to make. You know those changes – the small changes that add up and allow you to take charge of your life when you start building new, healthy habits.
The teachings, tools, and techniques I share are the same methods that provided my own personal transformation and awakening. In fact, it was my holistic practices, but specifically, yoga and meditation that helped me to recover from PTSD (Post-traumatic Stress Disorder) and substance abuse after witnessing September 11 in New York City.
I’m known by most of my clients as the “walk your talk” teacher because I’m all about sharing the “what” has worked for me, and the “how” you can do it, too. When you work with me, you are never left to figure out how to do it on your own.
Here’s who I really am. I’m really a “wellness nerd” who has dedicated her life to the power of yoga, meditation, energy healing, essential oils, and self-care techniques.
I love studying and teaching about the systems of the body, plant medicine, yoga anatomy, breathwork techniques, Ayurvedic eating by body type, energy work, and personal development.
What I learned so far on my journey can be easily summarized: So many of us let taking care of ourselves become last on the list of things to do every day.
My passion for holistic health and healing, coupled with helping others, is the reason I am here.
On a more personal note…
I believe in taking chances and saying yes to life. Six years ago I turned up the volume on my life when I left my yoga studio business, my corporate fashion career, and New York City, to pursue life as a wellness entrepreneur in Tuscany. Here is where I feel deeply connected to my Italian heritage and Mother Nature’s rhythms. There is tangible spiritual energy living in the lands and people of Tuscany, hence I understand why the world travels here for a visit. I consider myself lucky to call Tuscany home.
Along with my fine arts degrees, I hold an advanced E-RYT 500 teacher designation from Yoga Alliance, and several ancillary certificates. These certifications are in Pre and Post Natal Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Therapeutic Yoga, Yin Yoga, Freedom Style Yoga, and Anatomy and Breathwork. I am also a Usui Shiki Ryoho Certified Reiki Master. The summary of my formal educations has shaped who I am, and what I do, today. My work has been featured in Yoga Journal Italia, OM Yoga, Mantra Magazine, Origin Magazine, la Repubblica, and Elephant Journal.
I feel incredibly fortunate to have studied with many great Eastern and Western teachers over the years. My most powerful influences are from my personal studies with HH the Dalai Lama, Erich Schiffmann, Yogi Sivadas, Leslie Kaminoff, Jillian Pransky, Carrie Parker Gasteau, and Dharma Mittra. In addition, my current practices are influenced by my ongoing mentorship with Elena Brower and doTERRA Essential Oils. I continually study new and old traditions and implement this combination in both my teachings and practices.
You can find me teaching private yoga classes, teacher trainings, retreats, and practicing Reiki healing in Florence, Italy and the surrounding area in Tuscany. I also travel to share my work and enjoy teaching in Asia, the Americas, and throughout Europe. Currently, I am working online with clients in several different countries and love the flexibility of connecting in the virtual realm. For my weekly public yoga classes, I welcome you to join me at Radici Yoga.
