Blooma Nashville Yoga
is a locally-owned sister studio to Blooma Inc., which is based in Minneapolis. Blooma Nashville Director Jennifer Derryberry Mann has been part of the Blooma Inc. family from the very beginning, when she helped dear friend & Blooma founder Sarah Longacre Ehlers bring the vision for a prenatal/postnatal yoga studio into being in 2007. After helping open the doors to Blooma Minneapolis, Jenni taught there for two years, falling deeply in love with the support, the community, and the connection to birth, babies, and women becoming mothers.

When Jenni and her family moved to the South shortly after the birth of their second child, Jenni deeply felt the loss of the Blooma community. The support and love she’d experienced there was her introduction to the importance of self-care. The next two years of motherhood — with two little ones and a dose of postpartum depression — set the stage for the birth of Blooma Nashville Yoga in 2014.

Jenni is honored to hold space for women becoming mothers in Nashville. It is a blessing to join together with yoga teachers, wellness professionals, educators, and passionate mama advocates to weave a sweet web of Blooma love here in middle Tennessee! The studio brings together the most helpful resources for pregnancy, birth, parenting, and women’s continued self-care and self-discovery.
