JENNIFER RUIZ GOUPIL
“My vision for Caelo is to be true to what I believe yoga is about, to be authentic and sincere in that offering, and not to have a “gym” orientation to yoga. Yoga means union, and that union involves body, mind, and spirit. Healing and balance can happen on so many levels through yoga. We store mental, emotional, and even spiritual disease in our physical body. This focus on yoga’s power to bring about transformation and healing is very important to me. At Caelo I want to support students of all levels, and to make yoga accessible to everyone.”
FOUNDER, THE CAELO STORY
CAELO YOGA is the result of Jennifer’s desire to share her strong belief that yoga has the power change lives – both collectively and individually and to bring about transformation, healing and a greater sense of unity amongst all sentient beings. Jennifer’s ultimate aim through CAELO YOGA is for every student to be supported on their own yogic journey and through this to connect with a greater sense of their own unique gifts, path and purpose in this life that comes through Self-realization. Whether it is in her own classes or those of her incredibly talented team of teachers, she hopes that each student’s advancement on the path of Yoga will enable them to find a greater measure of peace and well-being within their own lives, while simultaneously realizing their unique ability to positively impact the lives of others.
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 29 years. Certified Jivamukti, Vinyasa, Yin, Trauma-informed yoga instructor, Sound Healing apprentice, and entrepreneur, 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. Prior to leaving the corporate world in 2007, Jennifer led a many-yeared career as an international marketing executive, initially coming to the physical practices of yoga
in 1990s Paris seeking relief from chronic insomnia stemming from the pressures of her corporate career and life as a big city-dwelling, single mother. 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.
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.
