What our dancers say...
"As a classically trained dancer, Jayne helped me understand what dance is and what place dancers should come from. There is basic honesty and truth to everything Jayne teaches, which is not only refreshing, but makes everyone she influences more free to be more of who they are. Working with Jayne through BRIAH/E.A.S.E has completely changed my anatomical shape and alignment. Now I look for the ease in movement as evidence of the most natural or appropriate way to move. As a scientist, I am naturally always on discovery and exploration. I have learned so much about my anatomy and what it takes to move in my own body and in my own way. "- Valerie Williams; Scientist
"Jayne is a miracle worker! Her understanding of the human body is extraordinary and every class is a journey into it's mysteries and wondrous capacities. Working with Jayne has allowed me to re-engage with ballet (a passion from my much earlier days) and continue to learn and grow. I never would have imagined being able to dance at age 61, with severe scoliosis no less. I feel stronger and more connected to my body than at any other time in my life and I owe this to Jayne and her BRIAH/E.A.S.E work. Her depth of knowledge and commitment to the growth and health of all her students are hallmarks of her teaching. She's simply the best!" -Deborah Malden
