soul needed that. You are
truly a gifted girl. The way
you balance sincerity
You are one

"Inspiration. Let me express my gratitude to
Jennifer who led me to the Yoga Retreat in Tuscany.
Encouraging me, inspiring me, as a beginner, to try
those poses (and yes, Jen, I laughed when I fell!).
Sun salutations in sunny Italy, yoga every day,
great food and wine, watching the sun set in
the Tuscan hills and touring medieval
towns..it was a great experience.
And I owe it to you Jen!"
"Jennifer Pastiloff is no ordinary yoga teacher. She
infuses her classes with the scents of sage and
lavender and the sounds of rock n' roll music and
laughter. She makes kicking your butt seem fun!
And having been to will inspire you and even turn
your life around if you will let her. She did it
for me. Then she'll ply you with wine and
chocolate. It really doesn't get better
co-star of the ABC drama
|"Jenn! I am so thrilled our paths
crossed....I really needed you
and to breathe again. It was
truly inspirational and uplifting.
I feel awake and for the first time
in a long time have some clarity.
Faith is restored and I have a
lot to do!! I love you

"I've been practicing yoga for 20 years. Along the
way, I've had some pretty remarkable teachers.
But, I can say I've had none like Jen. Not knowing
what to expect, I hopped a train in Rome (where
I currently live) and headed up to Tuscany for
her retreat on the recommendation of a friend.
I headed into class expecting all the normal
twisting and adjustments, but what I got was
so much more. She takes you to another place
entirely. Yoga for me has always been grounding,
a place to struggle and rest, to release and
search. Jen gave me all that and also made it
fun like only Jen can. You may walk in with
an ego, but you won’t walk out with one.
What she’ll leave you with instead
is pure joy.”

with Jennifer Pastiloff so much so that I just signed
up for her next retreat in Mexico one day after I
returned from Ojai with her."

Reading online and blog-surfing are entirely different animals than meeting someone in person, and meeting you was my first
chance at marrying the two. We make our own impressions of what the writer might be like based on the words themselves.
I am happy to note that the Jen I met last weekend only enhances the Jen-words I have been reading for nearly a year.
First, thank you for creating such an inspiring experience. The branch of yoga you have designed is ingenious, and I was having
so much fricken fun---you can tell by the goofy grin I am wearing in one of Shannon's pictures. The music, the dancing, your
enthusiasm made each movement a decadent dessert. While I was in those classes, I forgot about my humble demons and
the stresses that drive me a little too much throughout the day---worries of food, timing, feeling guilty about not being
what other's need, etc.
Continuing with your writing, I am so looking forward to getting a copy of your book. So, keep writing! No pressure though.:)
At Kripalu last weekend, this all expanded. I made so many incredible connections, you being one of them. I hope that we
can continue the connection. You are still on my vision board, along with the likes of Wayne Dyer, Jackie MacMillan,
my Grandpa, & Oprah.
Thank you for teaching me the power of being truly authentic and vulnerable. This was a big attempt of mine at doing

Kripalu Retreat Jan/Feb 2013
I attended your workshop at Kripalu last weekend. Coming back to the "real world" after last weekend has been hard, being a
responsible adult, returning to work and showing up to life feels like a big time challenge after consecutive days of feeling
cracked open and raw and human and beautiful.
I'm a nanny, and the Monday I returned from your workshop I worked 12.5 hours with teething four month old. He was insatiable
and screaming and kept falling asleep for 10 minutes and then waking up screeching miserably. I left work and sobbed on the
phone with a friend, talked about how I spent the weekend rooting into myself and my dreams and humanness, and then felt
totally toppled by the task of showing up for life. When I got in the shower that night, I saw the tattoo you had us put on that
first night of the retreat. What I'm manifesting is a stronger connection with my higher power, a deeper unconditional love
for myself. I saw that tattoo and my whole body softened. I remembered how gentle I could be with myself in that room, I
remembered sobbing into yoga, I remembered Rachel putting her hands on me with Lavender on them in Shavasana.
I want to tell you because I need to say thank you. Thank you for reminding me how deeply I am loved in the world. That
I am imperfect and vulnerable and lovable and human. I feel like one of the biggest lessons I'm learning right now is that
there's no such thing as arrival. But just so you know, last weekend, I got that warm glow in my heart that made me feel
like I was gonna be okay forever. I felt so raw and cracked open and filled with light, and I believed that I got to stay there.
And I'm softening into the reminder that not staying in that warm glow is part of what makes it so magical. I know that it's
the balance of screaming babies and warm glow that makes life exactly as beautiful and messy and fucked up and magical
as it is.
So thank you for being a human in the world. Thank you for reminding me that I can show up and be my fullest self and be
loved for it. Thank you for the reminder to be vulnerable. Thank you for this tattoo that helps me to feel like a piece of
my heart is still crying on my mat in Lenox, Massachusetts.
I have a map on the back of my bedroom door that's kind of like a vision board--a wide heart that branches into all the ways
I want to be in the world--learning, growing, playing, creating etc. When I came home, I wrote 'keep manifesting your
dreams' under ways I want to grow. I needed that reminder. I needed that retreat. I feel such deep gratitude for
sharing that space with you.
So much appreciation, love, strength and serenity.

|Making Sh*t Happen: The Experience of a Lifetime.
By Martha Meyer Barantovich
"A perfectly perfect day. A perfectly perfect time of year. A perfectly perfect opportunity for relaxation. It would seem that flying to LA and driving the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH for all the
cool kids) while watching the sun set into the water was a brilliant idea. Ojai, Ca..was the backdrop for an amazing retreat with Jennifer Pastiloff, of the New Jersey Pastiloffs and of Karaoke
Yoga/Manifestation Workshop fame. I had signed my beloved husband Joe (heretofore “My Lobster) and myself up for Jen’s Iaugural Manifestation New Year’s Retreat. I walked in feeling like
I was hanging onto my last ounce of sanity and left more than transformed, with enough life changing memories and lessons that will stick with me forever."

|I am not a yogi. My vinyasa are more ‘interpretive’ than anything else and my warrior poses are wobbly -- even my child pose lacks charm.
But none of that mattered. All that mattered was that I could be present and that I could breathe.
This past weekend, I stepped farther out of my comfort zone than I ever thought I could. I’d signed up for a Manifestation Yoga/Writing
retreat with no real expectation of whatI would experience. As soon as I met Jennifer Pastiloff and Emily Rapp, I knew it would be amazing.
The yoga and writing sessions challenged me physically, intellectually, and emotionally. I connected with strangers and reconnected with
myself. I found a placewhere others felt as strongly as I do that kindness matters, grace can be contagious,and that there is more beauty
around us than we realize.
During the course of three short days, my world slowed down for me and I was able to give love, to receive love, and when I left I
could say “I have done love.”
Thanks to both Jennifer and Emily for making me stretch in all kinds of ways, and thanks to my new tribe for letting me be me.

|Now in its third year, Other Voices Querétaro, launched by longtime Sunday Rumpus editor Gina Frangello, and boasting a host of Rumpus regulars as faculty, including Emily
Rapp, Rob Roberge, and the newly added Jennifer Pastiloff, announces its 2015 dates: May 15-25. All participants have the ability to take Pastiloff’s experiential writing/yoga workshop
(no previous yoga experience necessary) and then choose between Rapp (nonfiction) and Roberge (fiction/CNF) for a smaller, “traditional” workshop format. The program, which
offers guests like OVQ co-founder Stacy Bierlein and journalist Kent Black, also features an Evening Series focusing on special topics like “writing the body,” “journalism in the
online age,” “Publishing 101″ and “building a platform.” An excursion to the nearby artists’ haven San Miguel de Allende is included, as is a closing party in which OVQ
participants \share their work with the local English speaking community. Private consultations are also available
