Certified iRest Teacher
Jeanne is an IAYT Certified Yoga Therapist and Director of Yoga for Wellness, LLC. She is a Certified Yoga Teacher through the Integrative Yoga Therapy program, a Certified iRest® Meditation Teacher with the Integrative Restoration Institute®, and a faculty member and lead teacher for the 300-hr. program of Shanti Yoga teacher training school. She is registered with Yoga Alliance with the designations of ERYT500 and YACEP. Long-term health issues led Jeanne to yoga where she rediscovered her True Nature of joy and found tools for healing and living that dramatically enhanced her quality of life. She’s been practicing yoga since 1989 and in 1998 opened Yoga for Wellness, LLC, to share the many benefits of this tradition with others. Passionate about teaching yoga and meditation, she loves inspiring others to find health, healing and enhanced wellbeing. Her teaching style is gentle and accessible to anyone. Jeanne compassionately works with people living with MS, Parkinson’s Disease, cancer, infertility, chronic pain, as well as other challenging conditions.
In her personal practice and when teaching, Jeanne is guided by the non-dual traditions learned from Richard Miller, Ph.D., founder and Director of the Integrative Restoration Institute, and, also, Joan Ruvinsky . Her asana and pranayama teachings follow the disciplines of T.K.V. Desikachar, the son and primary student of Krishnamacharya, a prominent yogi who helped bring a resurgence of hatha yoga in recent decades. The teachings of these yoga masters have brought profound transformation and well-being.
Jeanne’s yoga studies have also been influenced by many renowned yoga teachers including: Joseph LePage, Founder of Integrative Yoga Therapy; Jon Kabat-Zinn, founding Director of the Stress Reduction Clinic and the Center for Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction; Gary Kraftsow, Director of the American Viniyoga Institute; and Sonia Nelson, Director of the Vedic Chant Center
