Jennifer-Lynn is a Certified Rolfer™ and freelance dance artist. As a Rolfer, she brings an in-depth understanding of physical change and movement education from 15 years working as a professional contemporary dancer, yoga practitioner/teacher and lecturer in the UK’s conservatoire system of HE vocational training.
She first encountered Rolfing Structural Integration as a dance artist, hoping to unpick some patterns of strain that were becoming increasingly familiar both in the studio and out. Although important and useful positive changes happened in her dancing experience through the Rolfing series, the more important changes manifested in day-to-day experience: breathing, walking, standing and everyday relationship all became more spacious… easier in a way that seemed spontaneous and un-forced.
A transatlantic transplant, Jennifer-Lynn initially trained in Canada at Quinte Ballet School and the School of Toronto Dance Theatre before gaining her Pg-Dip and M.A. at London Contemporary Dance School. She completed her Rolfing training at the European Rolfing Association in Munich, which is also affiliated with the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration in Colorado.
Also a keen cyclist, she is always interested in helping cyclists understand how they can minimize postural strain on two wheels.
My favourite place in Yorkshire is… MALHAM. All the parts of Malham, the cove the pavements the pubs the cycling in and out and up and down…
You wouldn’t know that… I’m half Bajan. No, I can’t do the accent.
