Jean has the dream to support the vision of Integrative Yoga by making it accessible to all, especially those who can’t take large amounts of time away from family or work to do the two-week intensive programs. She aims to create a non-judgmental, non-competitive learning environment where the student feels free to explore all the aspects of yoga. Her format is set-up for the students to have a lot of direct experience, practice, discussion, instruction and healing.

Jean has completed the Integrative Yoga 1000-hour Advanced Professional Yoga Therapy (certification) Program. Her main teachers include Kate Pelly (Iyengar), Ian Rawlinson (Desikachar-ViniYoga) and Joseph LePage (Integrative).
