In my twenties, I discovered the joy and benefits of yoga and practiced several years. Remembering the peace and calm that yoga affords, I came back to yoga thirteen years ago, and know that my practice will be life-long. In 2009 I was compelled toward a deeper study of yoga and became a certified yoga instructor so that I could share with others the harmony of a mind-and-body connection.

Now, as the owner and instructor of Yoga Spring, I currently teach Instruction and Inspiration, schedule private and semi-private sessions, and specified-focus workshops and series, such as Build Your Yoga House, Let Your Breath BE Your Guide, and The Benefits of Balance.

Through communication, adaptations, and modifications, I believe that anyone can do yoga. Each student is unique, as is each day they practice. I meet students “where they are” and together we step onto the mat to create sequences that work toward both well-being and a peaceful, quite mind.

Yoga with Jeanne is a relaxing interlude in my otherwise full schedule. I have a feeling of peacefulness come over me the minute I walk in the studio.

200-hour certification; trained in the Viniyoga tradition by Tracy Weber, former owner and founder of Whole Life Yoga in Seattle and a certified yoga instructor and yoga therapist.

Continuing education efforts have included a five-day examination of optimal health with Gray Kraftsow (an internationally known educator in the Viniyoga lineage), and consistent participation in Whole Life Yoga’s various Yoga for Yoga Teachers classes that examine in-depth specific yoga principals. For example, Teaching Flow Yoga Viniyoga StyleExpanding Your Awareness Through Backbends, Yoga for Low Back Pain, Teaching Yoga for Emotional Wellness, and Yoga for Anxiety and Depression.

Other recent yoga and well-being education efforts include Inclusivity Training for Yoga Instructors, Strength Training for Adults, and Fall Prevention.

My students are also a valuable source of on-going knowledge. Watching and listening to students not only informs me of what’s appropriate for students as individuals, but it also enhances my awareness of what fosters students’ experience of the present moment and the yoga environment that allows them to grow with support and acceptance.

I’ve been practicing yoga with Jeanne for over seven years now. As a 66-year-old guy, I find her encouragement to “work at your own pace” and offering modifications works beautifully for me. Limberness and balance, as well as breathing-centered mindfulness, are all huge benefits to the more senior yoga practitioner. I plan on continuing yoga with Jeanne as long as I’m able!
