Jean was introduced to yoga in early 2002. Fatigued from the demands of a challenging career, Jean personally experienced yoga’s power to transform not just the body, but also the mind and spirit and decided to become a teacher in to share this gift with others. In addition to hundreds of hours of workshops, Jean has received teaching certifications in two styles of yoga (Integral Yoga Institute and the alignment-based style of yoga known as Anusara Yoga). In the past several years, Jean has studied with nationally known teachers to deepen her understanding of yoga as therapy, which is the application of alignment principles to common injuries and chronic physical conditions. Jean utilizes these profound teachings to provide specific instruction on optimal alignment of physical postures while flowing within a calming, meditative, (but fun!) practice.
