Bottoms Up! Glutes and Hips
Does your SEAT need a treat? This workshop will take you through a fascial release sequence that will help with proprioception (knowing where our body is in space and time) and understanding the role of the glutes and surrounding muscles. We’ll then work on mobilizing, strengthening and moving the muscles in the hips as a way they are meant to move. In the words of Shakira – “Hips don’t lie”. Learn about common hidden issues that can arise from hip asymmetries like: SI, Knee, low back and even shoulder pain! IT’S ALL CONNECTED!! Let’s give the tush a little squish!

It’s the PITS! Shoulders, Armpits, Upper Lateral Seams
I love the saying, “Pain is not where the problem is”. Susi Hately.  There is so much truth to this. This workshop will help us to address how pain can be referred to other areas of the body. Our shoulder girdle is a complex grouping of muscles, tendons, fascia, ligaments that move the arm bones in the glenohumeral joint. Our  shoulder blades are meant to slide and glide on the rib cage with ease and support  arm movements. Respiration can be affected by the rigidity or suppleness of this region. This  juicy sequence is designed to improve ROM, strength, and functional movement  of the shoulders and may have a positive impact on breath and the surrounding areas above and below. Let’s spend some time in this workshop gaining understanding of our true range of motion and limitations with the goal of designing our own personal sequence to address these needs.  This is one of the most requested workshops!!

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™.
