Journey To Better Body Awareness.  Reduce Pain, Increase Range of Motion and Improve Functional Movement In A Compassionate And Long-Lasting Way. Let’s Take a Fascial Deep Dive Together!

Monday, Jan. 8th: Whole Body
In-Studio:  {REGISTER}
Online:  {REGISTER}

Let’s enjoy a 90 minute  full body massage from head to toe.  We’ll get a little goopier  from the inside out and create an internal fascial slushy! Rolling can be one of the easiest and fastest ways to shift from high stress overload to recovery mode.  Let this workshop pamper you with mindful breathing techniques, creative prop options, deep stretching and of course, a full “ROLL” out with the intended goal of moving you into a state of deep relaxation.  This workshop will be full of surprises with novel therapeutic approaches focused on pain reduction, generating ease, giving us the skills and sense to truly embody our bodies! You’ll get some time to pick your own  “body hot spots” and with Jen’s guidance create a sequence for your home practice. Let’s get curious in our self care, body laboratory!

Stepping onto the mat everyday has allowed me to stay grounded in the things that are truly important. Diagnosed with an autoimmune disease over a decade ago, my life took an unpredictable turn. Things that were easy became difficult and I felt as though I had lost part of myself. It was during this time that I deepened my spiritual practice. Yoga helped to heal the aches and pains that came with autoimmunity, it improved my energy, my mood and it allowed me to show up each day for my friends, loved ones and most importantly myself. Yoga’s transformational abilities led me on a new path to become a yoga instructor combining my past work as a Licensed Social Worker with my new path in yoga therapy, functional movement through yoga and myofascial release. As we bring all levels of a person’s being into balance, true healing occurs. Moving beyond illness and discomfort, we are able to live life to our fullest expression.

Jen completed her 500-hour at Kripalu with Integrative Yoga Therapy (IYT) in 2016 where she trained under Joseph and Lillian LePage and Maria Mendola (Integrative Functional Yoga Therapy). Jen furthered her study and attended an intensive training with Maria in Tucson, learning various techniques for myofascial release, therapeutic movements and exercises to rebalance alignment and long held patterns. In 2018, Jen completed a weekend training in The Roll Model Method® and a Ball Rolling Techniques Workshop with David Vendetti – both for myofascial release. Her extensive work with athletes, injuries and chronic illness in both group and private settings inform her teaching style which infuses safety, mindfulness, alignment principals, unique uses of props and functional therapeutic movements, and of course a lot of humor and fun!  Through the pandemic, Jen has continued to train and deepen her own practice with Susi Hately, Functional Synergy™ and a Monthly Mentor Workshop with Jill Miller, Roll Model Method™.
