Meet The Team

Elise Ackerman

Elise Ackerman has been entertaining audiences of all sizes her whole life. From the time she could walk, she lit up the stage and mat as a rhythmic gymnast, dancer, and actor. She has always been passionate about teaching and leading, which led to a career as a corporate trainer, where she taught everything from software skills to personal skills, and became a mentor.
 
Her ability to connect on a personal level, and her exceptional communication skills paved the way as she started her own business helping small businesses and individuals get organized, clear clutter and maximize productivity.

Elise’s entertaining continues today as a speaker and motivator on topics related to self-empowerment, authentic living, clutter clearing, and finding peace in the process.

Jayna Klatzker 

Jayna is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker with over 25 years of experience. She has a strong history working with people from older adolescents through elderly adults.  She has helped people who struggled through Anxiety, Depression, Life Adjustments, Disordered Eating, Trauma Recovery, Life Adjustments, Gender and Sexuality Issues, and those living with Autism Spectrum differences.  She is compassionate and innovative.  Her work is strength-based, helping folks find and build on their strong points, while looking at ways to address vulnerabilities.  

 

Through the years, it became very clear to Jayna that when our minds are overloaded or overwhelmed, our bodies can become symptomatic. When we are emotionally hurting, our bodies can end up storing our feelings that show up as headaches, inattentiveness, rigidity, irritable bowel syndrome, eating issues, and other maladies.  Our bodies reflect our life stories.  We often do not “just get over it.”  Issues and habits don’t just disappear if we ignore them.

 

Jayna’s first yoga teacher certification is in yoga that is more commonly offered to enhance physical self-exercise. The second teacher certification is trauma-informed “Subtle Yoga” (™)  that is more for mental wellness-innercise!  It is taught in slower repetitive patterns, like in neuro-muscular or somatic movement. This helps the brain renew ways of connectivity to calm, or energize, depending on what is appropriate for the yoga student.
