"Jolyn Hope Arisman changed my life. I live in the world differently because of her. She taught me how to connect with my body, to move with happiness, and to feel the space around me as a joyful and dynamic place. I cannot say enough about her. Very very lucky is the person who has Jolyn as a guide to the world. I have had that privilege for ten years."
I am a 75 year old woman who started working with Jolyn about one year ago. I have more strength, better balance, better posture, and, most importantly, more body awareness. I wish I had found her years ago.
Working with Jolyn Hope was a revelation. She formed my introduction to thinking about the body, my body, as a different experience and challenge. Her knowledge and understanding of the musculature and structure of the body, her knowledge of Far Eastern therapeutic techniques, her years of study of dance and movement all informed her approach to taking someone in his later 60's and bring him take movement and physical activity as a most essential and serious aspect of the responsibility of being alive.
