Jeanie (she/her) first understood that yoga was for her over 20 years ago when she was having trouble balancing in tree pose. In that moment, she realized that everyday we have different challenges and yoga is a practice that can help us gain perspective. Every moment is an opportunity to learn about ourselves. Through movement, breath, meditation, mantra, and joy in community, we can dispel the illusions in our life. Jeanie is deeply honored to be teaching at Mother and looks forward to sharing your practice with you.
