Jeanette's Bio

Jeanette's passion and enthusiasm for teaching yoga is a delight to be a part of. She first experienced the numerous positive benefits of practicing yoga in the mid 90's. and started teaching in 2002. With a background in Group Fitness (since 1988), Jeanette has discovered that bringing unity and balance to the mind, body and spirit, is just as important as keeping the physical body in shape.

Over the years, Jeanette's yoga journey has shifted to one of deep inner healing. Her mat has been, and continues to be a safe haven for tapping into suppressed emotion. Insights, healing, and a profound inner peace have surfaced through her explorations on the mat.
During an extended yoga teacher training in India (2009), Jeanette's knowledge and understanding of yoga was deepened and enriched by her teacher, Yogi Vishvketu. She considers it one of the most transformational experiences of her life, and is deeply grateful for the profound healing received.
The Sanskrit word for contentment is 'Santosha.' Given this name by Yogi Vishvketu, through the practice of yoga, Jeanette continues to search, and at times, find contentment in her own life. It is an ongoing journey.

Always a student herself, other teachers Jeanette has studied with are: Donna Farhi, TKV Desikachar, Mark Whitwell, Rodney Yee, Shiva Rea, Rameen Peyrow, and David McAmmond.

Jeanette's awareness of the energetic aspect of the human body has been enhanced through the practice of yoga. She has taken numerous courses in energetic anatomy, is a Reiki Practitioner and has experienced first hand, the power of hands on healing.
In 2014, Jeanette discovered Rosen Method Bodywork. She had been looking for something to offer in conjunction with teaching yoga. After several months of receiving her own personal sessions, she decided to become a practitioner. She is currently working through her internship (yes, clients are needed to work on). Jeanette continues to shift, transform and grow through her yoga practice and Rosen Method Bodywork.
