About Jennifer Wolfe:
Jennifer Wolfe is a Prenatal and Vinyasa Yoga instructor, Doula, clinical and medical hypnotherapist, childbirth educator, and Reiki master. She is the creator of the popular DVD "Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga: Jennifer Wolfe" and has just released a second DVD entitled "Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga: Short Forms with Jennifer Wolfe". She founded the Dolphin Yoga and Doula Center in 2002 to help birthing women and their partners have better birth experiences by providing knowledge, tools and a comforting environment for prenatal health and childbirth. In June of 2007, Jennifer expanded her business by taking on a partner, Tracy Stettner, and together they moved Dolphin Yoga & Doula Center to a larger location on the San Mateo and Burlingame border.

Jennifer has studied yoga for the past eleven years with a variety of instructors including Doug Swenson. As a hypnotherapist for the past eleven years, Jennifer has pioneered Childbirth Hypnosis, a unique methodology she developed for gentle birthing and anxiety reduction. Jennifer utilizes Childbirth Hypnosis and yoga in her doula practice to achieve deep mind and body relaxation. She has prepared hundreds of pregnant women for childbirth and provided doula support in over 160 births at Mills Peninsula, Sequoia, Kaiser, Stanford, El Camino, Good Samaritan, Valley Care Medical Center, Pleasanton Birth Home, and California Pacific Medical Center (CPMC) hospitals.

Jennifer directs the Center's pre-and postnatal yoga classes, incorporating Ashtanga, and Vinyasa Flow style yoga postures. She is an educator at the Palo Alto School of Hypnotherapy, where she offers Hypnodoula and Childbirth Hypnosis certification to doulas and hypnotherapists. Jennifer also provides Reiki therapy, education and certification. She lives on the Peninsula with her husband, Moe and their 8-year old daughter, Sydney.
