Let's Practice

Welcome to a community of women who dare to courageously pursue a life of balance and joy!

Here at A Joyful Life with Jennifer, we know two things to be true:

1. Change is the only thing we can be sure of in our lives.

2. Identifying your core values can help you live with abundant joy and purpose!

Hey, I'm Jen!

My work focuses on the energy, mind, body and soul of each and every person.

That is why I believe it’s important to openly share my values with you:

Family – These are the people I love and who love me unconditionally. They’re the ones I want to spend time with daily and who I can be myself around, no matter the circumstances.

Wellness – A lifelong process of consistently exploring and practicing habits to support my energy, mind, body and soul.

Courage – Finding it within myself to take steps into the uncomfortable, especially when no one is rooting for, pushing or watching me.

Connection – The exchange of positive energy between people that has the ability to inspire change, deepen relationships and create lasting impressions.

These values influence every part of my life and I have developed my practice of resilience around acknowledging and holding true to them.

Ready to do the work and unlock your most joyful, balanced self? You're invited to join a group of women dedicated to discovering who they are meant to be in the midst of life's transitioning moments.

Get To Know Me

MSG (ret) Jennifer Ballou’s personal story of hope and healing gave our entire team great insights into some of the challenges of the veterans, family members, caregivers, and survivors we serve. Her journey in overcoming adversity left our team inspired to continue our service to veterans, while giving us the tools needed to strengthen our personal resilience. Jennifer and her family are models for all to emulate.


I scream her name from the rooftops because doing it from space just isn’t possible. I feel so much more prepared to confront issues past, present and future and have a much more positive outlook on my life.

Having only attended one regular yoga class several years ago, naturally I was a little nervous to try a Hot Flow class. I mean, I’m not flexible and 90 degree(plus) temps...? Jenn showed me quickly that yoga is not about being flexible. She makes it a unique experience every time and caters to the needs of each individual class making sure you get exactly what your intentions are for that day. If you are on the fence at all about giving it a try, just do it! Jenn’s your girl! You won’t regret it!

Jen's Jams Vol.1
Slow Down Edition

Music is one of the several ways I find balance. Whether it's listening myself or creating playlists to support classes, workshops and events, I have always found that music feeds my soul. I created this specific playlist as an option for you to use when you might be feeling a bit stressed, overwhelmed or in need of a break. When slowing down is what you (and your nervous system!) need.

10(ish) Minute Guided Meditation

 I have heard from many of my clients and students that they struggle with how to get started meditating so I created this free, short, guided meditation just for you! 

The 7 Levels to Perceiving Change

The one thing we know to be true is that change is inevitable.

I created this guide to help you explore if the way you choose to react to change is serving you. After doing a ton of this work myself, I learned that I am in control of how I perceive life transitions and wanted to share this work with you.
