Chester Springs resident Tessa Jenkins, a training director and instructor for Bulldog Yoga, is juggling virtual workout classes while overseeing her children’s online education, writes Laura Brzyski for Philadelphia magazine.
For Jenkins, who began her career as an ICU nurse, healthy living has always been important.
“I have a history of cancer in my family, so I take steps living my healthiest life with an active lifestyle and eating well to allow me to be the best version of myself for my family,” she said.
This means that even during quarantine, she gets up early and works out before her two daughters, Lola and Sloan, even wake up.
To be able to continue working during the quarantine, Jenkins has turned her bedroom into a makeshift yoga studio where she holds virtual classes. For each of the classes, she takes voluntary payments and donates 50 percent to local charities and organizations that support healthcare workers around the region.
With her kids at home, she also spends more time cooking and ensures that their virtual classes are progressing without a hitch.
