Did you know One Down Dog is now offering Massage Therapy?!

We're so excited to announce that we are now offering massage therapy once again! We'd like to introduce, Laura Jenkins, our new massage therapist.

Laura moved to Silver Lake, Los Angeles this past January from Philadelphia, PA where she lived for twelve years.  She grew up in Poughkeepsie, NY and moved to Philly for college at the University of the Arts. Here she graduated in 2007 with a BFA in Modern Dance Performance.  She then began a collaborative dance company PINK HAIR AFFAIR, and co-directed, choreographed and performed for various projects and productions. Laura also performed and toured with Brian Sanders’ JUNK dancing on/in/and around doors, scooters, garbage cans, sand, aerial contraptions, others bodies and more junk! Between all of that she was an NFL Cheerleader for four years, ending her final season as Captain for the Philadelphia Eagles. She even had the honor of being one of the select five cheerleaders to perform for the troops in Kuwait & Iraq.

Along side her dancing, choreographing, and creating, she went back to school to become a Massage Therapist.  She wanted to use her experience and knowledge of the body to help other movers of the world maintain their movement through massage. After becoming certified she started working at a fitness and rehab facility with Physical Therapists, and Exercise Physiologists. Here she learned and practiced most of her techniques with corrective, injury, sports and rehab massage work. She also worked at various spas and yoga studios. She then opened her own practice, Massage Studio of Philadelphia and was once again employed by the Philadelphia Eagles as a Massage Therapist for the players 2014-2015 Season.

Laura is excited to venture into the Yoga world a bit more. Taking a pause from dance to settle into this new city, she reluctantly turned to yoga for the sake of her movement sanity. Turns out, she is really starting to enjoy it!  She is so thankful to have found One Down Dog, and is beyond grateful to offer massage therapy to all ODD yogis (and of course others!).
