As part of recovering from years of bookkeeping (and teaching yoga as a hobby) Jean Marie entered the world of mind-body medicine earning her RYT 500 as a Kripalu yoga teacher and is also a cardiac certified yoga teacher (Satchidananda Ashram). As her version of post graduate work, she received certification from The Academy for Guided Imagery and The Muscular Therapy Institute. In these extensive multi-year trainings she developed her passion for psychoneuroimmunology, neuroscience, anatomy and physiology.
After years of working in hospital and hospice settings, her focus of enhancing somatic awareness and consciousness embodiment has shifted to working with individuals taking up the leadership of their lives. She teaches Yoga Nidra as a process called Engaging Your Wholeness and a specialized pelvic floor somatic process for women transitioning into peri-menopause and menopause.
