Jennifer Hofmann studied Ethnology, Psychology and Sociology at the University of Heidelberg, Germany. After many field researches in Rastafarian, Shamanism and Tibetan Exiles in North India, she specialized in Medical Anthropology with emphasis on Women’s Health and Reproductive Health.

Jennifer did various studies in West Africa and had the opportunity to work with the local traditional medical practitioners.

Having grown up in an Afro-Caribbean culture- influenced family,  Jennifer celebrates an dhonors West African Malinké Music and Dance Culture, fusing it with the integrative bodywork she has teached and performed for many years.

When Jennifer came in contact with the holistic ayurvedic health philosophy, it was just consistent with her own inner perceiving. She really enjoys the wisdom, the art of healing and the inner touch which is Thai Yoga Massage: every technique melts into the next with total economy of motion; it seems like a beautifully choreographed Sacred Dance.

Jenny, your work was the best. You are a magical Goddess. The knot in my arm is still gone! - Bill Gallagher

I am a licensed massage therapist, and have experienced many different massage modalities from many therapists. Jennifer’s Thai Yoga Massage is truly incredible! She led me through nearly two hours of amazing movement and opening. She was confident and masterful but still gentle. I am not the most flexible of men, so some of the stretches were difficult for me, Jennifer noted this, brought me to my edge, a little further, and then released.  Perfect. Her movement in the session was flowing and smooth. Her pressure was just what my muscle tissue craved. After, I felt lighter, totally energized, and at home in my body. Most of all, Jennifer’s caring heart and presence gave this session its particular specialness.  She is absolutely fantastic — her love is evident. - Mark Balph
