MY NAME IS JENNIFER LOVAS, BUT YOU CAN CALL ME JEN.
I AM A YOGA INSTRUCTOR AND MASSAGE THERAPIST, A LOVER OF FORESTS, FAIRIES, SUNSHINE, AND THE SEA, AND A GIVER OF GOOD VIBES. I SERVE AS A CONDUIT FOR TRANSFORMATION AND HEALING, THOUGH I HAVEN’T ALWAYS BEEN THIS WAY.
At the age of sixteen, I had back surgery to correct severe scoliosis. Treatment involved two rods, ten screws, a metal cage surrounding my spinal column, and the removal of one rib, which was re-purposed and placed between vertebrae. The road to recovery was not without complications. While most of my friends were testing out their new driver’s licenses and staying out until curfew, I lay flat on my back for one full year. In the meantime, I suffered a collapsed lung and nerve damage, and accumulated immense amounts of scar tissue.
I once heard someone say we have to dive all the way to the bottom of the sea in order to push off of the ocean floor. What they failed to mention is that the decision to swim to the surface is ours and ours alone. From the depths of my daily pain and emotional and mental suffering, I made the choice to restore my entire being.
I turned to yoga for rehabilitation. Movement and breath became my medicine. And through this work, I unearthed a newfound spirituality and witnessed growth, awareness, and unity.
IT LED ME TO THE REALIZATION THAT WE HAVE THE CHOICE TO DECIDE – IN EVERY MOMENT, IN EVERY DAY – HOW WE WISH TO LIVE. THROUGH MY OFFERINGS OF COMPLETE RESTORATION, THIS IS WHAT I AM HERE TO SHARE.
