(Wellesley, MA) According to Boston Magazine's 2001 Best of
Boston survey, it's "a style that's at once soothing and energizing"
that captured the annual award for Jennifer Harvey as Boston's Best
Exercise Instructor (West). Now Ms. Harvey, along with a group of very
talented teachers, is bringing the best to her new Laughing Dog Yoga
Studio opening this month in Wellesley.
The new studio will offer a convenient daily
schedule of yoga for all levels including
beginning and continuing students whether
they seek gentle, flowing or power yoga
classes. In addition, both private and
semi-private instruction is available in yoga
and Pilates as is Yoga Therapy for those who
have either an injury or specific concerns.

fitness scene, Ms. Harvey has been on the
cutting edge of mind/body exercise and is an
accomplished teacher of yoga, Pilates and

yoga traditions, she holds a Blue Belt in NIA
