"Yoga therapy with Jennifer has been a wonderful compliment to my journey! I am grateful that she is in my life. She shows up in multiple ways and shows that she truly cares and empathizes with my process. Jennifer brings personal experience with recovery to the mat and that experience is so valuable. Although Jennifer is not a therapist, she has been a fantastic asset to my therapeutic process as I have been able to bring things that come up in yoga back to my therapist that have helped to advance my healing process. This form of expressive and spiritual movement is one way I nourish my soul." — Kaitlin
"Working with Jennifer has had such a positive impact on my life--mentally, spiritually and physically. While Jen and I have only been working together for a few months, I consider Jen one of my greatest supports. I am able to confide in Jen with whatever I bring to our sessions. In return, I receive positive, non-judgmental feedback and homework that aligns with my intentions, standards and goals. Jen's responsiveness and ability to leave her clients feel 100% supported is a rare find. I truly recommend Jen to anybody who is looking to heal, develop and deepen their mental, physical and spiritual relationship with themselves and others!" —Erin
"Compassion. This is an emotion that before working with Jennifer I applied to others but never to myself. How could I allow myself a break or give myself compassion for where I was or what I was facing? Throughout the short time that I have worked with Jennifer on my eating disorder recovery, she has taught me how to be kinder to myself and incorporate yoga beliefs and tools into my life to ease the negative voice in my head. Working with her has not only given me more power and confidence, but has also given me valuable insight into the physical, mental, and emotional steps I can to take every single day to help me find my breath and spirit." —Lavinia U
"I never thought I would voluntarily be in yoga therapy! Not only am I still warming up to the mere idea of therapy, but being still and calm enough for yoga is a challenge for me. However, after almost thirty years of struggling with an eating disorder, I decided to try another approach to support my recovery. I am so glad I ventured out of my comfort zone and met with Jennifer! Jennifer is kind, caring, compassionate, and a good listener. She makes me feel comfortable and safe. An added benefit is that I know she "gets it" because of her own eating disorder history. Whether we are practicing yoga or simply talking, I always leave feeling better than when I came in. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with Jennifer and count her as a blessing in my life." — 39-year-old woman
"I have struggled with disordered eating for over 15 years. It has, for a long time, been my safety blanket, a veil of deceit that protected me from the feelings that were too intense for me to begin to understand. Yoga has provided a safe outlet to explore those emotions without judgement and has allowed me to use my body in a positive way. Finding Jennifer and beginning yoga therapy has been a beautiful experience. Her gentle energy allows me to feel safe exploring those painful feelings without fear. Jennifer's unique and creative way of building individualized asana sequences has changed my time spent on my mat. From inversions to help change my perspective to strong power poses such as fierce pose to give me strength when I feel weak, each session provides hope and courage to continue moving forward on my journey." — Heather J.
"I’ve been dealing with food and body image issues for what feels like my entire life, and have been in and out of psychotherapy for decades. I’ve processed and dissected and discussed and analyzed my issues from every angle. I didn’t think at this point in my life there was any way to re-hash those issues any more meaningfully. Then came Jennifer. I found her on a whim, stumbled across one of her blog posts, and thought, why not? And it has been one of the best decisions I’ve made. Yoga therapy has provided a new lens through which to view my stuff and new tools to add to my self-care arsenal. Therapy is no longer just about words--getting on the mat has helped me connect with my body in ways that traditional talk therapy never could. I now have a renewed interest in doing the incredibly difficult work involved in this elusive thing called recovery, and Jennifer is a wonderful partner to have along the journey. She is warm, thoughtful, honest, genuinely cares, and best of all, really understands what’s going on. I’m so glad I found Jennifer, as she has become an essential part of my healing process." — Ellen L.
"Before sessions with Jennifer at Chime Yoga Therapy, internally I had an army of voices in my head that would beat me up saying, 'are you going to feel like this your whole life,' 'you feel so lost,' 'this isn’t living,' or 'you’re not good enough.' I really felt like this fight with food, my body and my emotions were holding me back to live the true life I crave and in my business getting in the way of the important work I was put on this earth to do. After only 4 sessions with Jen, I feel hopeful, alive, happiness, strong and confident. I have made more progress in life in these last 4 weeks than I had in a long time. I am conscious of why I make my choices around emotional eating, and Jen has taught me tools on how to deflect a tough situation and get out of it winning. Jen has helped me come to understand that forgiveness, gentleness and love are SO much more important that willpower or even eating perfectly. Food is not the enemy, getting back in the kitchen to create is what nourishes my soul. More important is that I feel better in my body and I’m more proud of it...no more pain and lots more strength! My mind is much more clear, I am more focused and more grounded. I stand stronger and taller and I can feel my thoughts and choices are much more intentional and present. I walk into a room like I own it! One of the most aha breakthrough moments is when I trust myself and we dig deeper and I find that I can trust myself and that the answers truly do lie within me. I look forward to meeting with Jen every week and I just wish I had started this journey sooner with her." — Erika I
"I first met Jennifer after about a year of inactivity due to back and wrist pain as well as chronic fatigue. I was very athletic and active in earlier years, so I was frustrated and not sure how to move forward. Very early on, Jennifer and I bonded over talking about the goings on in my life, yoga teachings, and our shared college connection. That bond helped me to work through my fears and desires and build confidence. We worked on breathing and steadying my mind and a few key poses that did not trigger or worsen my pain. The was such a big win for me, because I realized that I was a capable human again. After about 2 months, while working cross-functionally with other doctors on my orthopedic problems, I have progressed not only in my physical capabilities, but in my ability to handle stress with mantras, breathing, and movement. I have also developed self-knowledge and awareness, and I feel like I am on a more positive path in my life. I am so glad that I met Jennifer! She has been a critical part of my healing, and I wholeheartedly recommend her for yoga therapy." — Monica
"As a new yogi, Jennifer's classes are a place where I can learn, stretch my body and my mind, and feel safe enough to try new things. Yoga is so much more than a workout, and Jennifer teaches that, if you are open to it, everything is possible." — Melissa Z.
