Jay Bartley is a Certified Structural Integrator and the owner of Bartley Structural Integration, located in West Hollywood, California. He offers the classic ten series created by Ida Rolf or individual sessions based on his clients’ needs. His training included structural bodywork, biomechanics and somatic psychology at The New School of Structural Integration. Each session is designed for the individual, we live in a culture that is constantly telling us to work harder. I like to introduce the idea of finding balance and ease in our daily lives.
In 2008 after working in the corporate world for over ten years, Jay made a drastic change, he quit his nine to five job and immersed him self in the alternative health and wellness industry.
Since childhood Jay has been fascinated with the limitlessness of the human body. Growing up, Jay was involved in a variety of sports including gymnastics, which led him to his first dance class. He has been a performer and a choreographer for over twenty five years. He has studied ballet, jazz and modern dance – trained in Graham, Alexander, Klein and Laban/Bartenieff techniques. He was also a touring member of several Los Angeles based modern dance companies including The Stephanie Gilliland Company, Tongue and a founding member of Method Contemporary Dance.
Jay continues to study a variety of movement modalities which he brings to his private practice.
Whether someone lives a sedentary life or is a professional athlete, Jay’s clientele is anyone with a human body. He wants to spread the word of embodiment, we often overthink without feeling our way through. We can live our best lives by listening and building a deep relationship with our bodies and Structural Integration is a path to achieving this.”
