JENNIFER RUIZ GOUPIL
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, Entreprenuer, a Certified Jivamukti (300HR), Vinyasa (300HR), and Yin (200HR) instructor, and Sound Healing practioner, with Jennifer East & West coast and European influences, along with both Mexican and American 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. Her classes reflect this same spirit and are accessible to all levels, infused with yoga philosophy, mantra, (her passion!) dynamic Jivamutki sequences with eclectic playlists, or deep dives into the the gentler subtle body practices of Yin, Gong or other sacred Sound Healing instruments.
A life-long spiritual seeker with a zest for liviing, yoga entered her life in Paris in the late 1990’s as she sought relief from chronic insomnia and the pressures of her corporate career and life as a big city-dwelling single mother. Prior to leaving the corporate world in 2007, Jennifer led a career for many years as an international marketing executive. Along the way and prior to opening CAELO YOGA Paris in January 2016, she also founded and operated an international wine company focused on small-producer, biodynamic French wines. In addition to a never-ending desire to deepen further her yoga and sound studies, Jennifer holds an MBA focused on International Marketing & Environmental Management, a Bachelor’s Degree in International Relations and WSET Advanced Certification in International Wine & Spirits.
While running CAELO and teaching play an important part in her life, Jennifer 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 – human and otherwise – for their guidance support, at times trials, and inspiration.
