After two decades of ignoring her body’s warning signals, Amanda Boyce found herself stuck in chronic pain, unable to participate in the activities she loved. Lacking the right tools to equip her body for these sports, Amanda was on the fast track to injury.
In 2015, Amanda separated the right AC joint in her shoulder in jiu jitsu. Next, intense heel pain prevented participation in ballroom dance practice and running. Even a simple task like putting on shoes was a challenge. Hot pink crocs quickly become her shoe of choice!
In her search for answers to fix her injuries, Amanda was presented with responses from the medical community such as surgery, pain-killers and “learn to live with it.” Not content with those options, Amanda held to her hope for relief.
In 2017 Amanda experienced Yamuna Body Rolling at StraightLine Fitness Studio on a friend’s recommendation. After that class, her desire to get “unstuck” was invigorated! A new chapter had begun.
After talking with Shelly (owner of StraightLine and Rossiter coach) about the Rossiter System, Amanda’s hope for relief continued to grow. Deciding to give Rossiter a try, she finally found what she was looking for- a modality that would make real changes in her body and restore what she had lost. Over the next 2 years, Amanda was able to compete in jiu jitsu and Ballroom Dance Competitions, medaling in Gold, Silver, and Bronze.
A fire sparked within her and she knew life would never be the same. Transitioning out of the traditional workplace, Amanda committed to becoming a full-time Rossiter coach and Yamuna Body Rolling Practitioner. Ready to help people searching for answers as she once was, Amanda is excited to meet you!
While in college, Kaitlyn’s body developed immense pain from the repetitive strain of working at a computer, compounded by trauma from a rear-end car accident. Kaitlyn’s pursuit of natural healing led her to RMR in 2016. Through sessions with Shelly and Keith at StraightLine, Kaitlyn was able to improve her body and therefore quality of life. After her lasting results, she chose to learn this system to help her own family and friends reverse traumas and pain.
Shortly after her first workshop in early 2017, Kaitlyn’s passion for this healing work led her to continue her education through Level 4 Rossiter. She has added knowledge of Yamuna Body Rolling, and foam rolling to help her clients beyond their Rossiter session. She continues to seek further ways to help people relearn how good they can feel in their own bodies.
Though Rossiter took Kaitlyn out of pain, Functional Fitness Training with Keith is what’s kept her out of pain. Seeing and feeling the effects of rebuilding her core, Kaitlyn desired to expand her tools. Working with head trainer Keith, she began her training and education in Functional Fitness and added a certification through the AFPA. This offered more knowledge to help all her clients pursue global healing. Rossiter and Fitness Training go hand in hand in maintaining space in a body’s tissue system and making a body strong enough to withstand life.
Joining StraightLine’s drive to help clients learn self care tools and manage small pains at home, Kaitlyn certified with Amanda and Shelly in Yamuna Body Rolling over Summer 2018. The three of them are the first Northern Colorado Yamuna Practitioners and host weekly classes for spreading the body joy that Yamuna brings. See more here.
