About The Founder

Jennifer Quevedo is a 200HR Registered Yoga Instructor and the founder of Soul Empowered Yoga, a wellness space for BIPOC that focuses on slowing down and soul-care.  

As a first-generation  East Los Angeles native, Jennifer understands the pressures BIPOC face to hustle out of poverty while holding down a community and home


After graduating with a Master's in City Planning from MIT, Jennifer realized that while she had achieved academic success, she lacked the skills she needed to care for herself. Practicing yoga taught Jennifer how to prioritize her mental, physical, and emotional well-being. Jennifer created Soul Empowered Yoga to provide opportunities for other BIPOC to also prioritize their well-being, because we deserve to heal.
