Hi! I’m Shawn Jones. I have been practicing yoga regularly since 2006 and have been a member of Body Language since 2007. I went through Andrea’s Teacher Training program in 2010. The experience deepened my practice and made me even more passionate about yoga! I love teaching and sharing everything this practice has to offer. I’m so happy to have found this wonderful community. In my spare time, I enjoy working out, reading and spending time with my husband and 2 daughters. I look forward to meeting you and having you in one of my classes!

Susan Brennan

Did you know Susan won an award for designing a dress made out of toilet paper?  Her dream vacation is to go back to Norway, and her favorite book is The Alchemist.
Hello! I have always enjoyed fitness and have been a cheerleader for many years. I'm currently a member of the Detroit Pistons Cheer Team. I began practicing yoga (at Body Language) in 2009 after my lung randomly collapsed. I used it as a way to heal and strengthen my body. I consider my personal practice to be playful with strong determination. That comes across in my teaching as well. I feel it is a great honor to be able to share this wonderful gift with others. I look forward to seeing you on your mat!

Ricky Penn

Body Language has been an important part of my life for a LONG time. I started as a member here in 1985 (!) Three owners and 3 locations later, I am still here - working out, practicing yoga, managing the desk, and teaching yoga. Guess you could say I really like this place! I decided to train for and teach yoga to others because it has had such a profound and positive effect on my own life. When I am not here, I am busy with my business as a fiber artist at home in West Bloomfield. My life is blessed with great friends, three wonderful children, and, as a yoga instructor, the opportunity to help my students find their way into yoga and all it has to offer.

Jennifer Hill

Jen's hobby is to listen to all genre's of music...especially live music.  Her favorite movie is To Kill a Mockingbird and she would like to travel to Europe for her dream vacation.


Hello Everyone! My name is Jennifer Hill. My friend, Chris Lundin, kept bugging me for years to come and try yoga at Body Language. So when I got bored with my fitness routine, I took her up on the offer. I have been active most of my life...running, aerobic classes, weight training, etc. but when I took my first yoga class, Vinyassa, I was completely hooked. It felt perfect to my body and spirit. Vinyassa is my favorite form of yoga. It is physically challenging, creative, and juicy! It became my calming refuge as I was raising three children, working and taking care of a sick parent. Now, I want to assist others in finding the joy on their mat as well as off their mat that I have found while practicing yoga. This fall I plan on enhancing my teaching certification by becoming Yoga Alliance Certified. Namaste'

I received my certification in August of 2004 after training with Jonny Kest at the Center for Yoga in West Bloomfield, Michigan. I have been teaching Yoga for 7 years. I started at Body Language in April of 2005. My specialties are Better Backs, Short Form Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Slow Flow Vinyasa. I come from a strong fitness background and have done it all from kickboxing, stepping, spinning, aerobics and running. After receiving knee surgery I began my yoga practice and the rest is history. I still continue to power walk and am a major lap swimmer. I have given up any impact workouts. I was a school teacher for 33 years. This is my second year of retirement. I have been married for 34 years and my husband Don and I have 2 wonderful grown boys. I thoroughly enjoy teaching at Body Language and feel so lucky to have met so many genuine, kind and friendly people.

Jamie Oldfield

Jamie’s journey of yoga began over 10 years ago, culminating in her certification as a Yoga Teacher. To Jamie, yoga is about revealing your own inner happiness through good music and compassionate surroundings, to find the joy yoga has brought her. She is inspired daily by her husband, 2 children and dog. She believes that what you put out is what you get and that everything we learn on the mat helps us to be healthier and happier off the mat!

Robin Mantay

Hi, I’m Robin – I have been doing massage since 1999, and been with Body Language since April of 2004. I am a Nationally Certified Massage Therapist. I attended Irene’s Myomassology Institute in Michigan. Then went on to get my National Certification through the NCBTMB, and am also member of the AMTA. I often take continuing education classes to keep my certification up to date and expand my modalities. I work with my clients to maintain pain control, help with relaxation, circulation and create an overall sense of well being. I use all of my modalities to tailor each session to the clients needs at that time. I truly have a passion for massage. In addition to my massage practice I am an herbal practitioner and spend much time researching and trying new all natural remedies that our good earth supplies us with. I have a very large family that stays well connected, but spend most of my time with my husband (Tom), 2 children (Jacob and Kaylyn) and 2 cats (Cassidy and Tazz). I also enjoy traveling, especially to warm sunny climates, biking, yoga, going to movies, and lots more!
