Jennifra Norton, the owner of Chatham Lighthouse Beach Yoga, teaches yoga on the beach every morning from June to September at 7:30 am. She is a great example of “aging enthusiastically” and how not to stay in the box. Her life has always been one of gratitude and giving to other people.
Though she had been active and athletic her entire life, Jennifra was first introduced to yoga when she was studying martial arts. She remembers the time she found, on the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine, a photo of Kareem Abdul Jabbar in an Eagle pose. She thought, “Whoa, that’s pretty fabulous” and was intrigued by the physical shape of the body being able to do such a pose. This image stayed with her, and her interest in yoga was sparked.
In 1999, Jennifra made a New Year’s Resolution to go to eight yoga classes, two times a week for four weeks. After the 8 classes, she signed up for another 8 classes and then another and another. After many years, workshops and hours of training she became an instructor and has expanded her practice and teaching to benefit and inspire others.
