Amy and Jen first discovered (and fell in love with) the healing properties of myofascial release while recovering from injuries and found it to be the perfect complement to their yoga practices. They have shared this rejuvenating practice with people of all ages and stages of life. Whether you are a “desk jockey”, preparing or recovering from surgery or just want to feel and move better, this work can be a real game changer. Incorporating their knowledge of specific self-massage techniques along with years of experience working with students, Jen and Amy have created their own unique rolling workshop based upon awareness, healing and prevention.
If you love the idea of rolling but want a gentler approach, this practice is for you. Join us in our “self care laboratory” as we learn about “body blindspots” and how it feels to bring more balance into our bodies and our lives…all from a chair!
“Jen & Amy….you are both just amazing!!! I spend a lot of time in front of a computer and have developed chronic back pain. This practice is soooooo good for me!! A new tool for my toolbox. It’s an amazing class!!!”
-High School Educator
“OMG Amy and Jen, these balls are MAGIC!!! I have been so uncomfortable these past couple of days. Lots of trouble sleeping and back pain…this work makes a world of difference.”
Jen Mast, RYT 500, LICSW, Lifeforce Yoga Lvl 1
Jen completed her 500 hour with Integrative Yoga Therapy (IYT) where she trained under Maria Mendola (Integrative Functional Yoga Therapy). Jen furthered her study and attended a week long intensive training with Maria in Tucson, learning various techniques for myofascial release, therapeutic movements and exercises to rebalance alignment. Jen also competed an anatomy training with Ray Mucci in 2014. Her extensive work with athletes, injuries and chronic illness in both the group and private setting inform her teaching style which infuses safety, alignment principals, unique uses of props and functional therapeutic movements.
When Amy first tried a yoga class as a busy, young elementary school teacher many years ago, she decided it “wasn’t for her”. Ten years later and recovering from some serious health challenges, she decided to give “that yoga thing” another try. It was that second class after a decade hiatus that profoundly changed her life. She walked away standing taller, breathing better and knowing she had found something integral to her future. A born teacher, Amy couldn’t help sharing what she had experienced with others and began teaching yoga in 2003. Amy is honored and grateful to have completed her 200 hour teacher training with Shawn Shaw, Johnny Gillespie and Diana Hoscheit of Empowered Yoga . Always focusing on healing and prevention, Amy’s teaching has a strong foundation built upon core work, alignment-based poses and tension relieving breath work to restore and empower her students at their own pace. She believes in challenging herself and those around her, but is committed to listening to the body and making sure every class has a healthy dose of fun. Delight and connection are at the heart of every class.
