About Jennie

Hi, I’m Jennie Dodd, born in Edinburgh in 1971 and now living in on a farm in rural Devon. In the past I lived and worked in Athens, Amsterdam, London and more recently Brighton. I’ve been living in Devon closer to my family for several years now and don’t plan going anywhere else for long! Although, I am planning a trip back to India soon to continue my Yoga studies.

My passion lies in teaching Yoga, relaxation classes and dance from a converted barn on our farm and at festivals and retreats.

Devon is an ideal place to come for some R&R; space and fresh air mean there are some fab retreats here. I am lucky enough to teach Yoga at some of them including Reforge Retreats, Retreats for You and Yeotown Health Retreat

Otherwise, I am to be found at work in our community for Wolf and Water at Beaford Arts who organise therapeutic artistic work in areas that most need it. I also run the work experience week and produce an evening of dance at The Plough Arts Centre in Great Torrington and work for our local dance agency Dance in Devon.

Professional development is really important to me and I’m fully qualified, DBS and insured. I am a Post Graduate Secondary Dance Teacher and have BA Hons in Dance and related arts. My Yoga teachers training was at Chandra Yoga

Call me on 01409 282842 or jennie@nimblelimbs.com to find out more.
