Jenni Gritters is a health journalist and certified yoga teacher from Seattle, WA. She writes regularly for mindbodygreen, REI Co-op Journal, Gear Patrol, Experience magazine, and more, and her work has also appeared in The Guardian, Greatist, Outside magazine, Upworthy, FiveThirtyEight, Boston magazine, and elsewhere. She has a degree in psychology from Bucknell University and a master's degree in journalism from Boston University. She received her yoga teaching certification with Sendatsu Evolution.

Gritters covers the science of healthy living, focusing on the newest scientific research about living a satisfying life. She's especially interested in looking at which new health trends are legitimate and which are bunk. Lately, she’s been working to understand how the newest technologies are impacting our brains. She runs a weekly column for Medium’s health magazine Elemental, called The Health Diaries, and she previously worked as an editor at The New York Times' product review site Wirecutter, where she edited longform health, fitness, travel, and outdoors content.

When she’s not at her keyboard, you can find Jenni teaching yoga and mindfulness, hiking, running with her puppy and husband, and cooking.
