Private options (held at Jody's home studio, pictured right):

Yoga Therapy and/or Trauma Sensitive YogaFaith

Openings available: I schedule a limited amount of private, one-on-one yoga therapy and TSYF sessions. Yoga Therapy can be geared towards post-injury/surgery recovery or anxiety and depression. 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 at or through my website to see if you might be a good candidate for this model. This option is also available VIRTUALLY. 

$50/session or 5 sessions for $200. Yoga therapy and TSYF are not yet covered by insurance.

Relax & Renew® Restorative Yoga

Openings available: I schedule a limited amount of private, one-on-one 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 at or through my website.
$30/session or... Come with a friend and save! $25/session (each) .

Embodied Spiritual Direction

Rooted & Reaching Embodied Care: Integrated Spiritual Direction and Caregiving for Mind, Body, Spirit & Soul is a unique combination of spiritual direction and guidance, Healing Care Ministries Formational Prayer, worshipful movement and embodied prayer, and Trauma Sensitive YogaFaith—all with a body-focused and Christ-centered perspective. With close to two decades of experience in both ministry and body-oriented work, Jody works with individuals to live fully-embodied and whole-hearted lives. Read more about this option here.​To schedule a session, please contact me at or through my website.

$75/session or 5 sessions for $300.

* a word about hands-on adjustments: it is very common for yoga 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 cues can be given without physically having to touch the student. Permission is always gained before adjustments are made. She also uses doTerra essential oils in her classes and private sessions, and again, permission is gained before application.
