Jennifer Ruiz Goupil

Biography:
Born in New York, and arriving in Paris by way of Los Angeles in 1990, Jennifer has been calling the City of Lights home for over 25 years. Founder of CAELO YOGA, a Certified Jivamukti & Vinyasa yoga instructor and entrepreneur, prior to leaving the corporate world in 2007, Jennifer led a 17-year career as an international marketing executive. A life-long spiritual seeker with a zest for living, yoga entered her life in Paris in the late 1990’s as she searched for relief from chronic insomnia. With Jennifer East & West coast and European influences, along with both American and Mexican family origins, merge and give rise to a desire to create an atmosphere and an experience of yoga that generates warmth, sharing, connection, joy and love for students - like a family. While running CAELO YOGA and teaching play an important part in Jennifer’s life she considers herself above all to be a devoted student and inquisitive traveler on the path of yoga, continually seeking to further open heart and mind to the teachings. She is forever grateful to all of her teachers and especially to Sharon Gannon & David Life, co-founders of Jivamukti Yoga and to Rima Rabbath and Moritz Ulrich for their guidance, support and inspiration.
