Jen McCoy - Owner/Licensed Aesthetician/Licensed Permanent Tattoo Artist/ & RYT 500 YOGA Teacher
Bringing out your inner glow through the skin begins with a well balanced lifestyle. I've spent eighteen years as an esthetician treating, educating, and helping to improve my client's skin. My treatment approach is to understand the cause and educate first, then to address the skin & body's the reaction in a targeted and holistic way. I believe in finding the balance of proper care for the skin and body with a healthy lifestyle in conjunction with using the latest skin treatment technologies to achieve the most vibrant skin. My focus in treatments is optimal relaxation with a results driven outcome. The confidence in a person when they start to see results from treatments is what drives me!
Traditional yoga has guided people through the ages because it was passed down teacher to student. One on One. With each session working to help you to achieve completeness within.
Your personalized yoga sessions will help you to find your true personal path to awakening. Whether your goal is to open your shoulders or to open your heart.
Sixteen years ago, I was honored to have been granted the authority to teach the awakening benefits of yoga to students from all walks of life(It wasn't easy to go through what I did to be granted that privelage to teach the sacred practice of yoga through two separate ancient lineages). My formal teacher training(s) -Deva, Connie, Bikram- they have their different yoga philosophies. My philosophy is to honor your body and hearts calling so that you are ready for meditation on what is calling you..(your "gut" intuition/different from your heart) My true molding came from intense study with many world renowned yoga gurus, Tibetan Ambassadors, my fellow insightful yoga teachers, and my students, and is forever ongoing! I am blessed to have taught over 3000 plus classes around the US from beginners to professional athletes and I look forward to helping my students find their first BREATH!

"I've never had a treatment quite like Jen's. I'm in the beauty industry and have had countless facials and skin treatments. After I found her, they have all paled in comparison. I will never go to another esthetician! She is hands down the BEST." - Karen (Spa Client)
"I've been seeing Jen for about 8 years now. I see her for facials and have ventured into yoga with her! She is so knowledgeable and has helped me tremendously with my body and my skin. My own personal guru! Plus I feel like I'm on a cloud after I see her for facials. Love you, Jen!"

"I've been working as a massage therapist for over 6 years. My massage style can be best described as firm and flowing. I enjoy working with regions such as the neck, shoulders and gluteals. I love massage therapy for many reasons, but in particular I thoroughly enjoy when I focus on troublesome areas and my clients feel immediate relief or when we maintain their sessions to prolong health and wellness. I look forward to meeting new clients and helping them with their full body or site specific work. "
