Groundwork, LLC

Welcome.  My name is Jennifer.  I am both a counselor and a yoga teacher and I love working with people who are motivated to make a change in their life.     

I began practicing yoga with my teacher Paola Feher in 2006, while recovering from an Achilles rupture.  Yoga became instrumental in my recovery.  After practicing with Paola for almost ten years, I decided to learn more by pursuing yoga teacher training.  The spirit of yoga has been essential in helping me manage daily life with two young children.  

 

I have been so inspired by the benefits of yoga on my whole system, I want to share what I have learned with others.  In my group classes I hope to offer a bit of calmness to your otherwise busy life.  Check out the yoga page to see what group classes I currently offer.  I can also work with you one-on-one to design a yoga sequence specified to your individual needs.  Having a yoga practice personalized to your body and lifestyle is a valuable tool for navigating daily stress.

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) in the State of Montana and I am certified by Yoga Alliance (RYT 500).  I am also a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP).  Somatic Experiencing is a body-based therapy that focuses on the health of the nervous system and teaches ways to heal from traumatic events.  It is based on the life's work of Peter Levine.  In addition, I have a Montana Educator License with a school counselor endorsement and I previously worked as an elementary school counselor.     
 

I offer a variety of tools to help you feel healthy in your body, including yoga (asana), breath work, counseling, and consulting on issues related to being a parent. A healthy nervous system really does lay the groundwork for a healthy life, physically, emotionally and mentally.  I'd be honored to assist you on your journey.
