Welcome! I’m Jen. I teach yoga and meditation classes at Black Dog Yoga in Sherman Oaks, through private classes and individual sessions and in the workplace through specialty classes and workshops on self-care and preventing burnout. I also offer Reiki healing sessions. You are already whole and have everything you need to create a life you love. There’s nothing I love more than guiding students back to their innate wisdom, one practice at a time.
Jen is so much more than a yoga teacher. She is a genuine human, with love and compassion for her clients and their pains, bringing heart and soul to her teachings and tailors to both the emotional and physical needs of her clients. During a transitional time, perpetuated by sadness, loss, and severe panic attacks, Jen’s teaching helped guide me to make many life changing decisions. With consistent practice and dedication, I have learned to breathe, to be with my feelings, to meditate 30 minutes daily, and most importantly to know my body. Through her guidance and teachings of yoga philosophy I have not only made positive life changes but I have found myself and a sense of inner peace, and purpose. Private yoga with Jen is a gift!

Our company hired Jen Netherby in early 2014 for one company and then we extended it to our other company in early 2016. I have seen amazing results! Our employees are more focused and productive after each class. I feel it is well worth it to offer these yoga classes and I would recommend it to any other company! Namaste.
Jennifer creates an environment that’s comfortable, supportive and welcoming for students at all levels of their yoga practice, from beginners to those who have been taking classes for years. They ensure all their students move deeper into their practice while remaining aware and respectful of their individual limits. I left the class feeling both refreshed and invigorated.
Ms. Netherby has delivered classes in a patient yet encouraging manner, she has worked with beginning and experienced students and in all cases, Ms. Netherby has far exceeded our expectations.

At times my job can get very stressful. Having yoga at work with Jen has been a great way of releasing stress from the day. Jen really knows how to open up the body, work it out and bring it back to a relaxed state with meditation.

I first took the “Nail It-Handstand Workshop” last year with Niki and Jen. At that point, I had been suffering from severe tennis and golfer’s elbow for about 18 months…At their handstand workshop, I learned how to connect my hands to the muscles in my back and lats, instead of relying so much on my forearms. By practicing their technique, I found the pain in my elbows lessening until one day I forgot I even had a problem.
The thing I’ve discovered through my yoga practice is that things are not always what you think they are or expect them to be. Sometimes when you are trying a new pose or even a not so new pose, you alter your breathing or make small adjustments and they really transform it for you.

I am on a mission to expand the modern-day definition of self-care because it is something we all so desperately need in our everyday life. There’s a whole self-care industrial complex that has sprung up over the last few years to convince us that self-care means...read more
C U R I O S I T Y ✨ I’ve been thinking about it as a thread that leads us into our own path. Curiosity invites in the mystery of life. We can’t always explain what draws us to something and often we only know once we follow our curiosity through. ✨ I snapped this pic...read more
I remember in my 20s wishing I could live a multitude of lives. It seemed like I would need to live more than one so that I could experience all the different possibilities I wondered about. What would it be like to live in California? What about New York City? I was...read more
