Professional statement

Jayna is very interested in serving people who have great difficulty finding comfort or acceptance with their bodies. Because she works remotely, she can reach out to folks who are more homebound because of this difficulty. In her latest endeavor, Jayna became certified as a yoga teacher and has another certification in the Subtle Yoga method. Subtle® Yoga is an exceptionally adaptable approach to a Mindful Movement practice which is person centered and can be tailored to clients with differing abilities. It fosters the development of attention and mindfulness, to address depression, anxiety, learning differences, and Trauma. She also will provide an embodiment process specifically designed to help accept one's body.

Jayna has had a long-standing history working within the LBGTQ++ community. In the early days of the AIDS epidemic, she established the first openly identified "gay-friendly" practice in the Merrimack Valley area in Massachusetts. Since that time, she has continued to be a strong and loyal ally. Her most recent concentration of work has been focused on transgender folx on the Autism Spectrum.

Message to clients

Existing in a body that brings on all sorts of triggering feelings is awful. We do all sorts of things with our body to address the discomfort, and our whole health suffers tremendously. I have studied a method called Subtle Yoga which is the opposite of what people think yoga is! It has slow, repeated movements to help support the nervous system, and it redirects patterns of connectivity to create more calm. It is designed for any body in any state of need.

When we are too anxious, scared, depressed, tired, or overwhelmed, it is very difficult to live in a balanced and reasonable way. Practicing this method can help improve emotional states and shift toward more balance. This is what I seek to offer others. Within 1-5 sessions, clients report improvement. I often ask that people commit for 10+ sessions to reinforce the direction in which the treatment is moving. Practice creates the wonderful habits that can sustain the changes made. I also create a written journal of the movements so that clients can have it for reference.

Sometimes change can feel like you are asked to move a mountain. Mindful movement and meditation is a good place to take the first step. My work will stay within the context of the movement patterns and the feelings they illicit.

I am an LBGTQQ++ affirmative provider for many, many years, and welcome any body into my practice
