Jenny Ashe and Andrea Goyan met in Toluca Lake nearly two decades ago.
“We clicked, we believed in the same philosophies,” Ashe said.
“And we’ve been working together ever since,” Goyan added.
After moving to a busy location on Ventura Boulevard in the middle of Studio City for 15 years, they decided to move their Bodies in Balance studio to a new location in Tujunga Village (not far from the Moorpark and Tujunga intersection) at 11413 Moorpark St.
“It’s a bigger location, we can do more things here,” Goyan said.
“There’s a lot of parking, and we have room for many more offices,” Ashe added. “And yes, there’s more elbow room.”
There are more things to offer in this one-stop shopping of health professionals. Not only can the team offer private and semi-private exercise sessions, but they can educate people in Pilates, Gyrotronics and pain reduction.
There’s chiropractic care, kinesiotaping, neurofeedback brain training, acupuncture, massage therapy, homeopathy, far-infrared sauna and more.
Their team includes Rose Thomas Kauper who is a homeopathic consultant, John Mekrut who runs a neurofeedback clinic at the site, and Dr. Caty Van Houten-Williams who is a chiropractor.
“We are looking to expand what we have to offer,” Ashe said.
“That way we can help each other and fulfill all the needs for anyone who needs help,” Goyan added.
They have about 100 clients, some of them have come for a few decades, and some come from as far away as New Mexico. Some have Parkinson’s disease, Fibromyalgia, arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis and other ailments. Some are into strengthening or pain management. A few are recognizable and have Emmys. They have clients in their 20s and a woman in her 70s.
Goyan and Ashe are listed among the PMA Pioneers, among the first 250 teachers in the world to pass the Pilates certification test. They also are certified in the Gyrotronic Expansion System and Yamuna Body Rolling.
“We love Studio City, we want to stay here,” said Goyan.
“And this is a perfect location for people who want to grab a good bite to eat or coffee,” Ashe said, pointing out that they’re near where Henry’s Tacos used to be and a new Cactus Tacos is coming in. “Or a taco.”
