INSTRUCTOR EXPERIENCE AND TRAINING
Jenifer Trivelli began teaching yoga to children in public schools in 2007 and in the community in 2013. In 2009, she completed a master's degree in Counseling while working as an elementary school counselor in Central Oregon. After moving to Salem, Jenifer taught yoga classes locally and completed YogaCalm's 100-hour Youth Instructor Certification Training. In 2018, she became a Registered Yoga Teacher and began teaching yoga and mindfulness classes for adults while also integrating mindfulness and movement into her trainings for educators. Taking the Trauma Center’s Trauma Sensitive Yoga 20hr workshop in the fall of 2018 provided formal integration of Jenifer’s loves of neuroscience, trauma resolution, and yoga/mindfulness. Most recently, Jenifer developed TIME:IN | Resiliency Training for Adolescents - an integrated mindfulness, neuroscience, and movement curriculum to address the gap between social-emotional curriculums in our schools and mental health services in our community.

TIME:IN | Resiliency Training for Adolescents
A unique blend of mindfulness practices (through sound awareness, movement, and breath awareness) and neuroscience; distilled down into each category’s most basic elements for maximum accessibility, and written from a trauma-informed lens.
This 8-week curriculum provides students with essential training in evidence-based stress management: the knowledge of what’s happening in their brains and the experiential live practice of guiding themselves towards regulation and balance.
