For over twenty years, Jamien Rose (Cvjetnicanin) has been helping people come home to themselves through the process of embodiment. She began training in GYROTONIC® movement in 2004 and Pilates in 1995 and has studied multiple complimentary techniques. With a B.A. from UNC-Chapel Hill in Human Movement Science (self-created through Interdisciplinary Studies), teaching in corporate wellness, rehabilitation experience as a PT aide and OT volunteer, and years in professional ballet and modern dance, she is effective with many people. Jamien is currently completing the Masters in Occupational Therapy at the University of Washington. Jamien honors each person's unique priorities and aims to join them through deep listening and attunement. She offers empathic, intuitive and knowledgeable guidance to people with Neurological Movement Disorders and Special Needs (MS, Parkinsons, Brain Cancer, Stroke, Post-Polio Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Blindness, Autism, ADD...), Elders (so far, up to age 96!), HSP (Highly Sensitive People), Movement Teachers, Dancers and anyone desiring a deep feeling of Inner Strength, Integration, Freedom and Presence.
