“I trust Jen and love how informed I’ve become about my own body and in my practice as a PT.”  ~Rebecca Brown, Physical Therapist, Certified Pilates Instructor

“Jen Kelly has an extremely thorough knowledge of the Alexander Technique and I found studying with her to be extremely beneficial to both my dance technique and my overall approach to posture. Her holistic approach is helpful to anyone, not just actors, dancers, or athletes. Her aim is to aid in the overall physical experience to enhance a person’s well-being, both mentally and physically. I would recommend her to anyone seeking a new approach to how to carry him or herself throughout his or her daily life.” ~Nina, Apprentice, Charlottesville Ballet

“Not only did Jen help my  teenage daughter recover from a back injury, she improved her carriage in dance noticeably. During her last performance we saw a great improvement in her form. I know that we will continue to consult Jen throughout her study of dance.” ~Sally McDowell

“Working one-on-one with Jen was wonderful‹our sessions gave me the time and space to relearn how to breathe, sit and walk. Jen is a fantastic instructor, providing great visual cues to help one see the connections between and among the different parts of the body. She goes above and beyond, providing articles, books, and videos to extend knowledge of Alexander Technique beyond our sessions. From constructed rest to walking like a monkey, I enjoyed every moment in Jen¹s peaceful studio.” ~Stephanie Van Hover, Associate Professor, University of Virginia Curry School of Education
