Hi I am Jennifer, I established the 'The Byron Yoga Studio' the first yoga school in Byron Bay This centre became the hub for local and international workshops. My enquiry then moved into the somatic and remedial fields and it was my own health journey which led to a deeper self-enquiry. I subsequently, completed my Feldenkrais training in Brisbane 2000. Attracted by Dr. Ruthy Alon’s somatic discoveries, I spent the next couple of decades studying the Movement Intelligence program (this is Feldenkrais but with different strategies). I teach throughout Australia, Taipei, Kaohsiung and Seoul.
I offer Movement Intelligence Training Programs/Workshops/Private Lessons along with my private practice, teaching postural re-education. I assist clients to "Tune up their Sphincters", as an anti-gravity project for developing a "Spring in your Step". This is a special approach learning how to engage pelvic floor health and core stability. The Sphincters often known as the "Ring Muscles" and they are one of the tools which can help regulate the nervous system - quieting the "Fright and Flight Response". The sphincters when well coordinated and synchronised with the other muscle systems and the skeleton and helps with pain management, mobility and ease. Over the past 20 years I have worked with Anxiety & Depressive Disorders using the Anxiety Behavioural Program along with the Sphincter System, Feldenkrais and the Movement Intelligence programs.
My passion is to reignite an enthusiasm for movement, as "Nature Meant" (Dr. Ruthy Alon.) My clients vary from having had a stroke, hypermobility, whiplash, post-traumatic stress disorder, chronic pain or autoimmune disease and dyslexia. Clients ages range from children through to the elderly, also people involved in other movement fields such as dancing, yoga and pilates. I have also worked with a team of therapists in private rehabilitation centres, including: The Buttery, The Bay Retreats and the Sanctuary, all located in the Byron Shire.
