Certified Soma Practitioner, 

KRI-certfied Yoga Instructor 

My name is Jennifer Lovejoy.  I am a certified Soma Neuromuscular Integration practitioner and teacher of Kundalini Yoga.  In my practice, Green Horse Bodyworks, I work with both horses and humans. 

As I child, my dad and I made a study of the natural world.  We spent time walking in the forests shaking hands with the trees and smelling the earth.  We'd listen to streams gurgle and talk about the creatures that lived in the woods.  We would walk to the tops of hills and see the farms, winding one into the next, watch the hawks fly and water glisten, and feel the air move over our faces.  These were my first lessons in interconnection and seeing the environment as one thread tying into the next, a beautiful tapestry of  interwoven connections. The world seemed to me then (and now) as complex connection of countless interactions.  It has always made sense to me that a single action affects everything around it.

I think these early lessons are the very things that guided me to my current practice and the formation of Green Horse Bodyworks.  Soma is a study of wholism, a view of the body as more than a collection of its parts but as a dynamic and awe-inspiring system of interactions where nothing can be isolated and separate.  The mind, the emotions, the soul of the individual are all effected by the state of the physical body.  The physical body is built by what is bouncing around in the mental, spiritual and emotional bodies.  These interconnections are profound and desirable.  They inform and shape one another.  They support and energize one another.  They are our vehicle to radiant living.


     
                                                                                                            

I have always been interested in natural living, alternative health care and a non-chemical lifestyle.  I have spent many years studying herbs, homeopathy, body work, energy work, natural diet, and spiritual living to cultivate an authentic and creative life.  


Therapeutic Riding and Centered Riding

I also teach therapeutic horseback riding. I have the great fortune to work with therapy horses through my Soma work, helping them to stay happy in their jobs and comfortable in their bodies.  I am so grateful for the chance to do such great work!  I am PATH Certified and a certified Centered Riding Instructor.

"Be patient toward all that is unresolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now.  Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answers."

Rainer Maria Rilke
