A "new" kind Of Yoga teacher!

What I appreciate MOST about Jeanne Heileman is, in addition to her VAST knowledge of the body and the breath and alignment of the postures, she is one of the most authentic and honest Yoga teachers I've been in the company of and you will ENJOY being with her! She was my student years ago and now she is this accomplished teacher. I am SO proud of her!

She's the best...

Jeanne is the perfect yoga teacher. She is spiritual, knows her stuff, but is real and present on all levels. She can take you on a spiritual journey...but at the same time leads you in safe and focused manner. You witness her journey and tag along which I always find fun and inspiring. I've worked with her in class as well as privately...but were joys....

A Genuine Senior Teacher

Jeanne has studied intensely - both on her own and with excellent teachers - and it shows. In particular she is well able to adapt asanas to individual bodies because she has also learned to work with her own injuries and oddities. I am completely failing to do justice to her teaching skills here. Jeanne is simply excellent.

Unique yoga teacher

Jeanne helped me knock down mental barriers and fears I didn't know I had, but were in some way interfering with living an authentic life! Once you take a training with her, transformation is inevitable. It doesn't matter how full her room can be, she manage to connect with all of her students! She is amazing!

Jeanne Rocks!

Jeanne is certainly a spiritual person and I love her energy. She brings a wealth of knowledge and keeps the body safe. She will challenge you and you will sweat. Not to worry though, laughter is often part of the program.

Jeanne helped me truly understand yoga

Jeanne is the best! She's such a thoughtful instructor and takes time to individually get to know her students. I had done yoga here and there for years but she helped me discover its true essence and made me fall in love with the practice. She gave me time to come in to my own in her classes without overwhelming me.


She slowly started giving me tidbits of useful info when she knew I was ready for it, fixing my alignment in chatarunga and saying "there, you graduated." If you know her, you know her playful humor makes a very challenging class seem fun. But she doesn't treat yoga like some kind of exercise, she goes very deep in to what yoga does for your mind and spirit without coming off preachy or pretentious. She's a real person and relatable, and the wisdom she shares is more valuable than all the money in the world. She is the best teacher I've had, of anything really, and she gave me the tools through yoga to completely transform my life.

Jeanne is one of my favorite teachers. Her years of experience and extensive knowledge of yoga asanas and philosophy have been a big part of my journey and transformation. She holds a very safe space allowing me to explore myself physically and spiritually. Her hands on adjustments help to deepen my practice and are always effective. She's an amazing teacher.
