As a life long lover of movement and creativity Jean has spent much of her life exploring bodywork disciplines, travelling and practicing yoga.
Having discovered yoga whilst training as a dancer it soon became an integral part of her life, developing alongside her career as a performer and also her own personal learning and exploration.
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 from many diverse backgrounds including Geeta Iyengar and Sri K. Pattahbi Jois, as well as being self taught and working with more unconventional teachers such as Gill Clarke and Paddy McGrath.
Jean teaches a unique style of yoga and movement that stems from a deep listening within, so that the body’s knowing can be heard, felt and valued. She is known for her creative and fresh approach to sequencing of postures, sequentially unfolding into a dynamic flow, that helps to draw students and teachers safely beyond limitations and closer to their true potential and confidence through the yogic system of asanas, mindful breathing and meditation with a sense of devotion and playfulness.
Her classes focus on cultivating awareness, flow of breath, clear energy and strong alignment to balance and open the body.
As well as teaching open classes in London and being a co-founder of triyoga’s advanced teacher training programme, Jean also leads yoga masterclasses, workshops and retreats in the U.K and abroad.
Jean is a published author of yoga books which have been translated world wide as well as being a contributing writer:
