Thank you Jeni, your classes are really helping me get reacquainted with the feeling of slowing down and bringing more mindfulness to moving through life and practice.

I always feel much happier and energized after our sessions-as if I had a very good rest and night's sleep, and they give me a wonderful boost for the rest of the week. I already recommended kinesiology with Jeni to my friends and my family, and will surely recommend it to someone who is looking for a holistic approach to health.

The way I catch myself sitting and standing when Iā€™m not even aware of it is quite a remarkable change from when I first came [to see you]. I never knew it was possible to retrain the body and mind like this. Thanks so much for your help Jeni!
