Jinjer Stanton is a yoga teacher in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She is also an amateur naturalist and photographer. It is Jinjer's passion in life to observe the world and, if she can manage it, make sense of it. She wrote Yoga for Every Room in Your House because of her own struggles with finding a way to do yoga on a regular basis. She wrote her new book, Mousenapped for three reasons: 1) because she has recently met a number of people who had talents when they were young that were, essentially, beaten out of them, 2) because she herself always felt like an outsider in her family, and 3) because she is fascinated by both grasshopper mice and the capacity for creatures of differing species to befriend one another.
She is the author of the Midwest Book Awards finalist Yoga for Every Room in Your House. She served as a minister for several years. She has been teaching yoga for more than 15 years, working in adult education through the Minneapolis school system, Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, Nokomis Yoga and private classes. Before that she studied yoga for more than twenty years. She founded Just One Percent, an organization dedicated to promoting meditation as a way to bring about world peace. Her writing appears in a several publications including
The Edge: Soul of the Cities (www.soulofthecities.com) and Essential Wellness (www.tcwellness.com). Articles by Jinjer have been translated into both German and Italian. She is an herbalist and an astrologer
