A word from the founder of
Beautiful Feet Wellness, Jenny Footle:
“You would think getting over a drug addiction or exiting the sex trade would be the hardest part, but honestly, reintegrating back into society is scary and complex. I work with women who are currently in or have completed holistic healing programs reenter “normal” life. Everything from how to answer questions, engage in healthy social activities, and how to feel comfortable in their own skin when it feels like no one understands or can relate to you.
I also help women and girls gain confidence and physical health through exercise. When your life/value revolves around what your body looks like and what you can do with it, reorienting your brain and body is key in the healing & empowerment process.
Freedom doesn’t come with a completion certificate. Instead, freedom is a journey that starts out as hard and scary, but can become life giving as you discover the depths of how you’ve been set free. The heart behind Beautiful Feet Wellness is encouraging people to move from surviving to thriving by discovering healing through fitness, self-care and appreciation, spiritual growth, and wellness practices.”
Jenny Footle received her degree in International Relations with a focus on human rights and Dance in 2013, and holds certifications in Group Fitness, Zumba, yoga, and personal training. She has been teaching various kinds of dance and fitness since 2008, and has been working with survivors of exploitation and the organizations that support them for over a decade, including 7 years in Denver.
An introduction to Beautiful Feet Wellness
Jenny helped form Breaking Chains with Love, an activist group, to help bring awareness to the issue of human trafficking and lobby for policy change in favor of victims. They were able to help pass an Illinois law that gave international HT victims refugee status and benefits.
From there, Jenny moved to Texas where the fitness and dance instructor side of her career really took off. Within months she was bringing dance and wellness to everyone from seniors to at risk youth.
Jenny moved to Denver and began working directly with organizations combatting human trafficking, people exiting the sex trade, and survivors along the front range.
Jenny had been volunteering her time to bring fitness and wellness to human trafficking survivors and those exiting the sex trade in the Denver area for 4 years. In 2018 she had to start turning down requests as she was still working full time to help support her family.
Jenny formed Beautiful Feet Wellness to better serve these populations she has a heart for, utilizing her expertise in fitness, wellness coaching, and spiritual growth.
