"I only did one therapy weekend with you, but it has impacted my teaching for years!!"
— Amy Reed

“I took a workshop with you in New York. I am still processing all of the information that you shared with us and I must tell you I have not stopped using so many of the things you offered that weekend. I really can’t say enough how much I appreciated your approach and commitment.”
— Jonathan G.

"Thank you for an AMAZING and truly transformative workshop at Oasis on Saturday (the Anatomy of Breath). As a yoga teacher, I had thought I had gone deeply into my physical and emotional layers but, until your workshop, I have never felt such release, freedom and inner stillness. I plan to implement your tools into my own practice and share it whenever possible. Looking forward to your next visit to Cleveland!"
— Deb Bradt

"Jenny, I loved your workshop and creative ideas to help us align but the motorcycling tips were just what I needed. My husband and I went riding Sunday and everything you suggested worked like a charm. My husband had no back pain and neither did I. Thank you so much for the added bonus. Ride safe and see you next time."
— Molly K.

"I just want to let you know that my body hasn't felt this good in years. I have been working with the ball and dowel, doing most of what we covered in the workshops and it is almost two weeks and my left hip and ankle feel great. The hip adjustment you gave me is unlike any other I have received and I want to thank you for giving me this new found freedom in my body. I have brought the ball and dowel work into some of my classes and the students, while a little resistant at first, have all found the benefit of opening the web of fascia. Thank you, thank you, thank YOU!"
— Denise Roche Rounds

"You have certainly been my most inspiring and thought-provoking teacher. Thank you for your expertise and passion."
— Kristi S.

— Jackie Prete

She is the ultimate professional and all of her workshops are packed with valuable information and tools. Her yoga classes are a delight; she inspires you and leaves you feeling uplifted!"
