Yoga Spring provides a peaceful setting where you can nurture your body, open your heart, and quiet your mind. We practice continuous breath and body awareness and approach our postures with compassion and acceptance.
And as your practice deepens beyond physical movement, you'll come to know the connectedness, awareness, and love that is yoga.
Yoga is like breathing fresh air. I look forward to Jeanne's classes. She does a great job instructing and keeping things mindful and calming. Susie C., Edmonds, WA
Yoga Spring's teaching format encourages students to choose from a variety of specific-focus sessions, workshops, series, and events. You can choose or request offerings that most directly speak to your heart, interest, needs, and budget.
Whenever I visit Seattle, I practice with Jeanne. I love her instruction and it's a travel ritual I would never miss!

Postures are sequenced in a simple, elegant, and harmonious order to create an integrated practice. Whether it's a slow-paced, grounding YIN sequence, or stronger poses mindfully grouped to develop muscle tone, you'll be offered modifications throughout class so you can adapt your practice to your body and what it needs on that day.
Anyone can realize the quiet mind and balance of yoga. I invite you to step onto your mat and see where your practice takes you.
Yoga Spring classes (and private instruction) are suitable for most individuals who are mobile and have an overall basic level of physical fitness. Potential new students who may be working with physical issues, challenges or injuries, please contact me prior to attending so we can gauge if the class or session will be a beneficial yoga option for you.
Have you ever considered treating your friends to a yoga class? Or maybe your co-workers or book club would like to learn and/or practice yoga together. How about your wedding attendants? We can create the yoga program that speaks to the interest, intent, concerns, schedule and budget of your group.
If you prefer instruction in a private setting and sequences designed specifically for you, please contact me. We'll discuss your desired yoga focus, length and number of classes, schedule and fee. For example, your intent may be to improve your balance. Or perhaps a quieting evening flow designed to release muscle and mind tension for a good night's sleep.
If you know someone who does yoga or has expressed an interest in learning it, yoga makes a thoughtful, beautiful gift. We can design any type and number of classes based on what you'd like to spend.
YANG + YIN Yoga
Sunday, July 28, 2019
9 - 10:15 am $17 drop-in
Pre-registration not required but helpful to know if you plan to attend; class size is limited.
We'll first move through an active standing sequence...think Warrior I, Goddess, and Tree; stronger poses that are dynamic and physical.
In the second half of class we become meditative and move closer to the earth...think passive, deep and lengthening stretches coupled with meditative breath.
The combination of both Yang and Yin movement brings balanced energy and the beneficial (and necessary!) combination of both strength and flexibility.
Please check here often for announcement of special classes and series.
In my twenties, I discovered the joy and benefits of yoga and practiced several years. I came back to yoga 15 years ago, and know that my practice will be life-long. In 2009, I was compelled toward a deeper study of yoga and became a certified yoga instructor to share with others the harmony of a mind-and-body connection.
Now, as the owner and instructor of Yoga Spring, I currently teach Instruction and Inspiration, a format of private and semi-private sessions, specific-focus group workshops (such as Build Your Yoga House and The Benefits of Balance), and a grounding YIN sequence each last-Saturday of the month.
Through communication, adaptations, and modifications, I believe that anyone can do yoga. Each student is unique, as is each day they practice. I meet students "where they are" and together we step onto the mat to gently move toward well-being and a peaceful, quiet mind.
Yoga with Jeanne is a relaxing interlude in my otherwise full schedule. I have a feeling of peacefulness come over me the minute I walk in the studio. Cindi C., Lynnwood, WA
200-hour certification, trained in the Viniyoga tradition.
Continuing education has included a five-day examination of optimal health with Gary Kraftsow (an internationally known educator in the Viniyoga lineage), and consistent participation in Whole Life Yoga's various Yoga for Yoga Teachers classes that examine in-depth, specific yoga principals. For example, Expanding Your Awareness Through Backbends, Yoga for Low Back Pain, and Yoga for Anxiety and Depression.
Other recent yoga and well-being education efforts include Inclusivity Training for Yoga Instructors, Strength Training for Adults, and Fall Prevention.
I truly appreciate Yoga Spring. Thank you Jeanne! As a golfer, my overall flexibility has improved, and specifically, my driving distance has improved by at least 15 yards...Yeah Baby! Mike G., Kirkland, WA
My students are also a valuable source of on-going knowledge. Watching and listening informs me of what's appropriate for individual students, what brings students into the present moment, and the yoga environment that allows them to grow with support and acceptance.
I've been practicing yoga with Jeanne for over seven years. As a 68-year-old guy, her encouragement to "work at your own pace" and offering modifications works beautifully for me. Limberness and balance, as well as mindfulness, are huge benefits to the more senior yogi. I will continue yoga with Jeanne as long as I'm able! Jim B., Kenmore, WA
I worried a lot. Will the garden grow, will the rivers flow in the right direction, will the earth turn as it was taught, and if not how shall I correct it?
Was I right, was I wrong, will I be forgiven, can I do better?
Will I ever be able to sing, even the sparrows can do it and I am well, hopeless.
Is my eyesight fading or am I just imaging it, am I going to get rheumatism, lockjaw, dementia?
Finally I saw that worrying had come to nothing. And gave it up. And took my old body and went out into the morning and sang.
