“Have you ever walked away from an experience and realized that you might never go back to who you were before? After an 8 hour one-on-one intensive with Jennifer, I walked out of her studio and into a world where the possibilities were limitless. Every aspect of my life has been touched – my playing, my teaching, the gait with which I walk. With simple take-aways, like “My breathing is free” and my daily practice of constructive rest, I know that the positive effects of our work have just begun. I feel incredibly blessed to have found a teacher who clearly loves what she does, believes in the work, and has the gift to clearly share it with others. If you have the opportunity and the inclination, take the plunge, ask the questions that you have no intention of answering and surrender yourself to the possibilities.
