Meet the Hosts

I'm Jennifer Hansen: Founder, Instructor and Heart Behind Metta Yoga. 

I am a certified RYT 200 vinyasa based instructor with a love for teaching slow flow and grounding practices. In addition to teaching and running Metta Yoga, I am a full time Phys Ed teaching in Monmouth County. 

Lake George has always held a special place in my heart. Its serene natural beauty, grounding energy, and the vast, calming expanse of the lake have been a source of inspiration and rejuvenation for me. It’s a place where I often retreat to reconnect with nature, find peace, and recharge my spirit.


I am thrilled to invite you to our retreat at Lake George, where you can experience the same tranquility and grounding effects that I cherish. Our retreat is designed not only to deepen your practice but also to cultivate a supportive and vibrant community. Together, let's create unforgettable memories, embrace the joy and serenity that Lake George offers, and build lasting connections.


Welcome to Metta Yoga – where kindness, community, and the comfort of nature come together.


Hi Metta Tribe! I’m Caitlin and I am a 200HR RYT. I started my yoga journey in 2017 and in 2020, made the leap to take a teacher training to obtain a better understanding for my own practice and I felt deeply called to share this powerful practice with the world. In my classes, I incorporate meditation, breath work and a challenging (but fun!) physical practice. Tapping into the mind, body and spirit because it is all connected- and so are we! Lake George has a way of immersing you in its natural beauty that for me, it’s like my reset button or charger. It is a magical place that I hold near + dear to my heart as I take trips with friends there almost every Summer. The beauty of the Adirondacks reminds us to slow down and be present. It is a way for all of us to disconnect from the external world for a bit and spend quality time in nature together! I can’t wait to experience the magic Lake George holds with you!
