Birgitte Philippides

“Through my work with Jena I have lost 37 pounds and kept it off. My cholesterol has gone down from 208 to 128. I now eat to live, not live to eat. Food is no longer a full-time job for me.”

“I used to use food as a drug. It made me feel good, and covered up pain, loss, insecurity, stress, and a myriad of other issues. I was 212 pounds. It was costing me my entire life, to the point where I could barely even function.” Read More…

Sarah Jenks

“I lost 40 pounds AND have completely transformed my romantic relationship. To have the freedom around food has been tremendous–I can AT LAST live my life.”

“I’ve been on and off diets for most of my life. I couldn’t keep foods like cookies or ice cream in the house, because they would set off a binge for me. I’d finish the lot! Weight gain, of course, resulted and constant anxiety. Food is everywhere and when I couldn’t be comfortable around it, I was constantly uncomfortable.

Being overweight was affecting my relationship with my fiancé. Our sex life had diminished. I was really sensitive to any comments he made about my body. If the comment was either negative or neutral, I took it as an insult, and if it was a compliment I never believed him! This created a lot of stress in our relationship!!” Read More…

Thank you, Jena. Your help, along with my meditation has gotten me from a size 10 to a size 2 – 4, just like you predicted, and it’s stayed off for 7 months now, with no dieting, just gentle loving of myself.

“Plus you’ll smile to hear that I’ve never eaten more chocolate than I have this past year! Your Pleasurable Weight Loss approach really does work.”

Megan la Russa

“When I started working with Jena la Flamme I was living in New York, working the fashion industry with a lot of pressure about weight and body image and looking the part.”

“My self esteem was really low. I had put on fifteen pounds, which may not sound like a lot, but I’m short and it just really added up and again, being in the fashion industry I couldn’t fit into my clothes. I felt lethargic and had no energy for my job. I was becoming depressed, especially in the winter months when it was cold and snowing, I didn’t want to leave my bed. It had gotten really bad. ” Read More…

“Lost 7 More Pounds – Finally Down To A Size 12″

I finally reopened my wardrobe boxes of clothes I thought I’d never fit back into. I can’t wear my size 16 jeans anymore — just bought a size 12! I’ve lost 23 pounds since in May! I had reached a plateau before attending Pleasure Camp, but Jena’s coaching, insight, and teaching kick-started my losing streak! I’m finally down to the 150′s, and looking forward to losing more! I thought it was impossible, but Jena gave me hope … and a new attitude! I’m now a flaming red-head with a short cut, and I’m loving it! Thanks, Jena, for getting me started on an exciting, new path! I’m thrilled with this new life! Read More…

“I’ve lost 20 pounds and kept it off without counting one single calorie”

When I came to Jena I was 20 pounds overweight, lost and unhappy about it. I’d tried fad diet after fad diet, run hundreds of miles on the treadmill, but I had not lost a pound.

I knew something was off, but thought if I just had more willpower or made it to the gym more, the weight would come off.

It was a miserable approach. I was miserable because of it. That’s when I found Jena. She was thin, pretty and blond. I figured she must know something I didn’t. Read More…

“I’m finally at peace with my weight and with food. I now feel complete gratitude for my 40-year old body.”

When I met Jena, I’d lived with a lifetime of “supposed to’s” and “not good enough’s” ruling my feelings about my body. As early as the 7th grade I was told that my hips were too big. I was a dancer and this led to a constant battle to stay lean and fit.

As I approached 40, although I knew according to other people I looked “pretty good for my age,” I never felt good enough for my own expectations. As dancing started to hurt more and more, and I couldn’t continue the way I wanted, I felt more and more disconnected from and resentful of my body.

Attending Jena’s Pleasure Camp allowed me to reconnect with the love I have for my body and for food, and to let go of the resentment, the guilt, the “supposed to’s” and the “should’s.” I’ve now found ways to move my body that are enjoyable. I enjoy food without guilt. I lost the five pounds that were nagging me, and because I did it pleasurably, they stayed off.

“I’ve lost 10 lbs. I’m a better mother. I can now finally be a role model healthy body image to my three daughters.”

As a holistic practitioner and coach myself, I still continue to journey on my path towards loving myself, and honoring my body as a divine temple. Attending Jena’s Pleasure Camp was an amazing weekend of growth and transformation for me in this respect.

Since then I’ve lost 10 pounds and have a new relationship with food. I’m now a better mother because I’m finally able to be a role model of healthy body image for my three daughters. This is truly one of the biggest breakthroughs of my life. Jena’s wisdom has changed how I feel about myself, my worth, and my role as a feminine creature on this planet.

Jennifer Purrenhage

“I’ve lost 15 pounds & have let go of the extreme frustration connected to weight loss as far back as I can remember.”

“Working with Jena was one of the best investments I’ve ever made in myself. For years, I’d been unable to lose weight, regardless of diet and exercise. Jena helped me explore my body’s wisdom in holding onto that weight, and she guided me to integrate the lessons of my past fears about weight loss with my current desires. Making this mind-body shift – and reinforcing it with meditation – has made all the difference. I’ve continued to lose weight – I’m down a total of 15 pounds – and, perhaps more importantly, I’ve let go of the extreme frustration that was connected to weight loss as far back as I can remember. My choices are now truly pleasure-based. I feel empowered, at ease, and grateful for Jena’s unique gifts.”

“Jena’s program is truly revolutionary! I’ve already lost five pounds without counting, measuring, writing, balancing, or stressing out.”

“Jena’s program is truly revolutionary! Take it from me: I’ve done every single diet under the sun since I was 9 years old. You would think that years of suffering, denying myself, working out, and obsessing would have resulted in a wonderful figure. But no. At my highest I was 190 pounds. I never reached the “magic number, and then I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, and gained ten pounds seemingly overnight.

Jena’s online Weight Loss Pleasure Camp has been life-changing! It harnesses the power of the feminine, and restores the balance between body, mind, and soul. It’s not about punishment or rigidity. It’s about the “Discipline of Pleasure” and “Honoring your Body.” I’ve already lost five pounds without counting, measuring, writing, balancing, or stressing out. Thank you Jena!”

“Attending Jena’s “Pleasure Camp” opened so many doors for me! She showed me that my body was using weight gain as a way to cry out for attention and that weight loss could come naturally when the right conditions are in place. Pleasure Camp is where you find out exactly what YOUR conditions are and how you can put them into place to have the healthy, sexy body you want.”

Patricia Heard Greene

“Losing weight and feeling great about my body has freed me up to create so many wonderful changes in my life. I’m so much happier.”

“I recently did some blood work and am thrilled to say my numbers were so good I was referred to as a healthy 20 year old!! Really cool to the ears of a 39 year old. I have lost weight and my eating habits are truly wonderful!!! Thank you Jena! I speak highly of you on my personal travels!”

Jenna Ritter

“I’ve never needed to worry about weight since. I re-enegrized and re-fueled me into balance with food any my body”

“I am now feeling consistently great overall!! No more headaches, body aches, cramping – better digestion, more energy. I have a sense of being more grounded and clear in the mind. Feelings of anxiety have dissipated. A feeling of being complete and whole – and able to bring this to activities and relationships in my life – has arisen. I really felt that everything was tailored to my needs and desires. The recipes and literature really helped me to cement my learning. The practicality, the simplicity, and being really supported by Jena and her team have had a tremendous impact on my life. I simply live differently after this coaching!”

Shanda Sumpter

“I looked great to the outside world, but inside weight is something I always battled with, literally my whole life, and now it’s been lifted.”

“When I spoke with Jena I had tears in my eyes. The freedom she brought into my space was miraculous. Literally my whole life I have been working on breaking emotional eating. I’ve been cleansing, and cleansing and cleansing just to keep myself at a size 2, looking great to the outside world, but on the inside it’s something I always battled with. Furthermore being a success coach myself, that’s been the one area where I haven’t been able to find success and that has been frustrating! Jena teachings brought this incredible freedom with food to me, and a weight has been lifted.”

Shanda Sumpter, Success Coach for Women

Anya Kamenetz

“Jena’s approach was excellent from the point of view of being very holistic.”

“The program also maintained a grounding in science and actual insight about nutrition, eating and exercise. I felt like there was continuity and plenty of connection throughout.

In terms of the changes I’ve experienced, pizza and bagels have lost their appeal. By getting rid of these cravings I feel more confident and more in control. I don’t feel like there is an outside force imposing on me to eat more healthy. I simply have a healthy relationship with what I eat! Whereas before my energy fluctuated, I have even keel energy all day. It makes my whole day easier. I’ve lost weight and toned by body in the process.

Over all it’s an incredibly motivating program. If you want to see a personal trainer for your body, or a therapist for your mind, then this is for the mind-body connection. Jena’s program incorporates elements of all of those. I definitely recommend it.”

Journalist, Fast Company,

Lisa Fabrega

“Jena’s Pleasure Camp blew me away and brought me deeper into pleasure than I ever thought possible.”

Since then I’ve seen the ripple effect across my life, in how I’m approaching my workday, my relationships, and how I relate with my body. I’m owning my power and my sexiness more, and I’m owning my that I have every right to have pleasure in my life.

Nobody is teaching the stuff that Jena’s teaching – it is truly revolutionary. Plus she practices what she preaches. She lives her teachings. You can see it and feel it in the room, and you can’t help but be inspired to do the same. If you really want to understand why you’re having trouble losing weight and want to finally get to the root of it, I would definitely recommend working with Jena.

Roberta Lemes

“Thank you for rescuing the woman I always knew was inside me.”

“I’m so different from the woman I was when I first came to Jena. It’s been amazing. Before I started her Pleasure Immersion, I can safely say I was not “in my body.” My body and mind felt completely disconnected. Whenever I had a feeling of happiness, sadness or anything in between, I would stuff it down with food and not really feel it. I would fill up instead of feeling. Now my mind and body are connected, and this connection is here to stay for life. Thank you, Jena, from the bottom of my heart, for rescuing the Roberta I always knew was inside, but up until now I couldn’t bring out. Working with you has been literally a pleasure – pun intended! I’m really glad I found this refreshing approach to weight loss.”

Roberta Lemes

“Pleasure camp was different, special and perfect–one of the more special weeks of my life.”

“I went to Pleasure Camp hopeful, but skeptical, and I left Pleasure Camp, both transformed, and a true believer in the power of pleasure, and a true believer of working with Jena la Flamme.

Yes, I’ve struggled with weight, but ‘heavier’ than weight, I’ve struggled with bad body image and a lack of self-compassion, for as long as I can remember. I’ve explored self-growth retreats and communities before, but Pleasure Camp was different, special and perfect. It provided a safe and sacred space to explore real issues and learn about the true power of pleasure.

Though it’s called Weight Loss Pleasure Camp, and there is a focus on weight loss, the tools and exercises you learn are applicable to any issue or struggle you might find yourself facing.

Jena is a truly radiant and gifted person who makes space for you to learn, love and live. Pleasure camp was one of the more special weeks of my life for which I’m grateful.”

Kate H. Scientist, Brooklyn, NY

“Pleasure Camp has changed everything for me: my confidence, my relationships, my career. I’m now at my happy weight and don’t think about my weight anymore.”

Julia Allison, Journalist, Author, Bravo TV Star

Sacha Lalla, Non-Profit Director
