PRIVATE TRAUMA SENSITIVE YOGAFAITH: Virtual OR in-person! I schedule a limited amount of private, one-on-one Trauma Sensitive YogaFaith (TSYF) sessions. TSYF is a faith-based method aimed at exploring the somatic impact of trauma in a person’s body. If you (or you know of someone who) might benefit through this body-oriented work, please contact me through my business number at 419-528-5956 or through my website to see if you might be a good candidate for this model. I am happy to work in conjunction with your counselor.
$50/session or 5 sessions for $200. TSYF is not yet covered by insurance.

PRIVATE RELAX & RENEW® RESTORATIVE YOGA: I schedule a limited amount of private and semi-private Relax & Renew® Restorative Yoga sessions. Restorative Yoga helps one learn to rest deeply and completely. Your private session involves personal assessment and 2-5 poses hand-picked for your personal needs. It is also a great way to recover from injury or surgery. To schedule a session, please contact me through my business number at 419-528-5956 or through my website.
$30/session or 5 sessions for $120. Do this with a friend and save! $25/session (each) or 5 sessions for $100.

Jody’s teaching philosophy can be summarized in two words:
ROOTED & REACHING…

ROOTED or grounded in form, alignment, intention, inclusion, safety, and a shared-experience between teacher and student.
REACHING or stretching towards personal goals, dreams, destiny, and the God-given design in each of our lives.

STUDENTS of ALL shapes, sizes and abilities are welcomed and encouraged to reach their full potential through this BEaUtiful thing called yoga. All classes are also taught with trauma-informed philosophy* in mind.

*In a traditional yoga class, it is very common for teachers to offer hands-on adjustments to help students with alignment and form. With trauma-informed yoga philosophy in mind, Jody offers very little hands-on adjustments, finding that many visual and vocal cues can be given without physically having to touch the student. Permission is always asked before gentle, compassionate adjustments are made. She also uses doTerra essential oils in every class and private session, and again, permission is asked before application.
