Jeanine Talento, E-RYT 500, is a Trauma-Informed Educator, Yoga Teacher Trainer, Emotional Freedom Facilitator & passionate writer. Jeanine believes in the power of healing through a reconnection to Self, authenticity, vulnerability, and an honoring of our unique human experiences.
An outspoken and unconventional facilitator of 1:1 mentorships, Yoga Teacher Trainings, Retreats & Women’s circles, Jeanine brings a light hearted approach to Trauma Informed work that normalizes and releases shame around the difficulties of being human.
Jeanine’s yoga journey began in 2006 in New York City as a way to seek relief from mental health struggles including anxiety, OCD, and insomnia. Little did she know, the same perceived suffering that brought her to Yoga would be exactly what she alchemized into her power, purpose, and personalized offerings.
A long time student of Psychology, Jeanine is adamant about the intersectionality of Yoga and Trauma-Informed principles. With over 1000 hours of Trauma Informed Training, Jeanine weaves the powerful topics of Yoga for Mental Health, Addiction, and Trauma into YTT curriculum in a way that is accessible, inclusive, and allows for integration.
The foundation of Jeanine’s work is that liberation from trauma requires a collaboration of compassionate inquiry, somatic curiosity, releasing shame, and recognizing our limiting core beliefs all through creating a safe space where folks can explore their inner landscape with patience and permission.
Jeanine currently resides in Oceanside, CA and teaches weekly group classes at Black Sheep Yoga. She completed the year long graduate level program Compassionate Inquiry with Gabor Mate and a six-month Introduction to Internal Family Systems with Dick Schwartz. She is currently studying Contemplative Psychotherapy at the Nalanda Institute.
Jeanine is committed to her on-going development as a teacher, space holder, and human being.
