Founder

Jennifer Cormier (LMT OR #16470, CT # 6951) is an artist and Bhakti Yogi, a yogi of the heart. She was born and raised in New Britain, Connecticut and spent her growing up years in love with dance and all things performance and visual art. She went away to the College of Charleston and there, she took her first yoga class in the college gym in 1997.  This class catapulted her onto the path of self-inquiry and healing where she’s been wide-eyed ever since.

“Jenn brings the gentle, graceful joy of her focused spiritual practice to her skilled hands-on therapy. I always feel so cared for when receiving from her, and experience a great sense relief from muscle tensions and emotional discomforts afterwards.” – Karin Kiteley, Licensed Massage Therapist

Jenn has been teaching Pilates since 2001 and yoga since 2005. She is also a Licensed Massage Therapist specializing in Thai and Cherokee bodywork, as well as the transformational practice of Harmonyum Healing.

Jenn Cormier studied intensively with Sivananda Vedanta International Yoga Center, Jonas Westring, Sara Avant Stover, and has most recently completed a Yoga Therapies Certification with the Naam Yoga Center. Yoga is a lifelong practice of union. Union with body, mind, and spirit. With the Higher Self, with the heart, with the Divine.
She has been teaching Traditional and Contemporary Pilates since her full mat and equipment certification with Karen Sanzo and Coleen Glen in 2001. Pilates “as I know it” explains Jenn,
“is both a skill and a Transformational Meditative Movement Practice that can shift the not only the body and mind but the Spirit as well.” Jenn is also Visual and Performing Artist, collaborator and member on the Board of Directors for Scapegoat Garden – a Contemporary Modern Dance Theater Company.
“Beauty is many things, May we see truth in the mirror art so graciously offers us.”  Jenn has just been ordained as an interfaith minister — studying Traditional Earth Based ways from First Nations through the Center for Sacred Studies.
