She creates a safe haven for students to dive deep, find their edge, and transform. Jeanne teaches with sensitivity, generosity of spirit, and a good dose of humor. Founder of Tantra Flow Yoga, Jeanne brings together her years of studies and teaching skills into a style of yoga inclusive of asana, Ayurveda, and mindfulness, with the added focus of the poses’ energy.
Jeanne was introduced to yoga as a dancer and actress. Facing ongoing pain from scoliosis, yoga allows her tools for physical realignment and acceptance of difficulties. In her quest for a deep and meaningful connection to all that yoga has to offer, she studied extensively in Ashtanga, Iyengar, Anusara, ParaYoga, Vini, and Tantra Yoga, each adding a deeper element of meaning to her practice and teachings. Jeanne tours internationally, leading teacher trainings, workshops, and retreats, and teaches at YogaWorks when in Los Angeles. For more information go to www.tantraflowyoga.com.

The passionate inquiry for Truth at the deepest level
Oh, wow, there are so many! I love to break down backbends and help students discover how to breathe into the upper chest, helping them elongate in that region, which often changes their whole experience in the pose. Backbends are not necessarily depleting; they can elongate us and increase our Prana. I also love to dispell the myth about the core and teach a practice that actually empowers the student in a very integrated manner.
