Jen McCarter: Yoga Instructor and Intuitive Energy Worker

Join Jen for a special 90 min Restorative Class at New Yoga Now! We will journey through the chakras using the 5 senses as we go. Expect release, tasty treats, and bliss.


Energy work and Intuitive Readings

Jen's training is based in the Theta Healing technique, but through her experiences and readings has created her own form of energy work.


All practiced in the light and love of Creator, Jen connects with your energy to receive visions and images, all leading to messages for you. Sometimes energy needs to move, sometimes the client needs clarity, and sometimes the client needs help clearing up life's lemons.


Jen enjoys working with and connecting with her clients. There is enough light for everyone.


Nourishment for your soul.

"My 11 year old daughter and I attended the Wise Woman Within retreat hosted by Jen McCarter. It was a lovely weekend devoted to firming the connection between mother and daughter during those rocky middle school years as well as introducing some useful lifelong habits such as yoga, mindfulness, and journaling. Jen did a wonderful job of keeping the weekend fun (and delicious!) as well as meaningful. She is an experienced yoga instructor and gives many options for all levels of yoga practice. I would highly recommend attending her events."

"Refresh, renew, and rejoice! NamaSizzle was just the retreat with friends that I needed to get me back in the game of life."

Audrey Roberts

"A unique and wonderful way to spend a relaxing morning with a group of girlfriends.  The yoga was challenging for the experienced gals but Jen's instruction was perfect for those who were newer to yoga.  And the food was delicious, especially the frittata. We loved it and would definitely do it again!"
