#103 | The Embodied Woman: Honoring Your Body and Going with the Flow with Jenna Ward
About This Episode
Special episode with the coach of the coach! Feminine Embodiment Coach & Founder of the School of Embodied Arts, Jenna Ward lives between Australia’s Sunshine Coast & Europe. As an ex-pharmacist turned embodied woman Jenna intimately understand what it’s like to live life feeling disconnected & dis-embodied. Through her own personal experience & guiding hundreds of women back into their body, Jenna equally knows what’s required to get out of your head, feel empowered by your emotions & claiming your sensual power. Together with an international community of women, the School of Embodied Arts is redefining what it means to be fueled by the feminine.
“Feminity is concerned with love, with creation. I see everything that exists as the living dance of the feminine in action.”
Anna Rova is a proud student of Jenna’s Feminine Embodiment Coaching Certification program. By using her methods, women are able to learn to be present in their own bodies and to strive for deeper connections with their physical selves. The Embodied Woman Program tackles 6 issues facing women today: the lie that our dark side is problematic, the lie of feminine inferiority, learning to work through thoughts in an embodied way, cultivating sensuality, enjoying the wild nature of pleasure, and understanding magnetism.
Join us for a delicious conversation about movement, honoring your whole self, and being an embodied woman. Jenna will share her journey from pharmacist to embodiment coach and teacher.
“Our strengths can be born from our weaknesses.”
While Jenna started out as a pharmacist, she realized that the job was taking too much of her energy, was putting too much emphasis on her mind, and was disconnecting her from her body. She shifted to working in kinesiology, a type of energy practice that focuses on acupressure. However, Jenna soon developed the same overly structured habits that she had hated in her previous job. She was trying to find her purpose in her career, and soon Jenna found that her purpose couldn’t be external, it needed to come from her own development and personal growth. Jenna started trying out ideas on her clients, and soon her embodiment practice began to solidify.
“I am successful because I define my own success. I’m not interested in anyone else’s version of success. I don’t need anyone’s permission.”
