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. In 2018, Jeanine created the Trauma Informed sect of School Yoga Institute, infusing Yoga Teacher Training curriculum with a more psycho-therapeutic framework.
Jeanine’s yoga journey began in 2006 in New York City, and she has been teaching since 2013. A long time student of Psychology, Jeanine is adamant about the intersectionality of Yoga and Trauma-Informed principles. With over 2000 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 is committed to her on-going development as a teacher, space holder, and human being. She completed the year-long graduate level program Compassionate Inquiry with Gabor Mate, a year-long Contemplative Psychotherapy program with the Nalanda Institute, and a six-month Introduction to Internal Family Systems with Dick Schwartz.
Jeanine currently resides in Oceanside, CA with her bulldog, Burrito.
