A life long lover of movement, expression and creativity Jean spent most of her childhood and early adult years dancing and running! Discovering yoga whilst training as a dancer she began to incorporate it into her life and later career as a professional performer.
In 1995 she qualified as a Iyengar yoga teacher and since then she has continued to study different forms of yoga with many great teachers including Geeta Iyengar and Sri K Pattahbi Jois, as well as being self taught and working with more unconventional teachers such as John Stirk and Paddy McGrath.
Jean teaches a deep dynamic slow flow form of yoga. She is known for her unique ability to draw students and teachers beyond limitations and closer to their true potential and confidence through the ancient yogic system of asanas, mindful breathing and meditation with an approach of devotion and playfulness.
We have worked with Jean for 10 years and wish we could see more of her on our destination yoga holidays.
In the meantime, we are hosting a record number of holidays this year with a selection of truly outstanding teachers at a variety of gorgeous, peaceful destinations. Hopefully, you can find a holiday that suits you.
Jean is featured on Movement for Modern Life. Check out a teaser for her Gravity Surfing Vinyasa class:
