Jean helps create, or further develop, a mindfulness practice that is realistic for ones’ lifestyle and is aligned with personal intentions for the practice. This is open to youth, teens, adults, and educators.
Through games, activities, music, movement, and food tastings, Jean helps a family to understand what mindfulness looks and feels like and how mindful moments can be found and celebrated throughout the day.
Working with pre-school through college-age students, Jean teaches mindfulness courses using the Mindful Schools curriculum intertwined with custom lessons designed around the intentions and goals of the faculty and administrators.
Mindful Movement Classes
Classes are created using YogaEd’s thoughtful yoga curriculum that engages the students in an interactive and playful practice, while incorporating Jean’s creative mindfulness practices. The combination of mindfulness + yoga provides the students with an opportunity to build an insightful awareness of their mind, body, and emotions.

My students were always so excited when they saw Jean coming into my classroom to teach mindfulness and garden lessons. Jean makes learning fun. Her lessons are engaging and age-appropriate. Sometimes she brought in props and made a game out of the lessons. Sometimes she brought in food so we could learn to eat mindfully and even taste new foods. Her lessons were always delivered calmly and thoughtfully. I didn’t know my class could be so still and quiet! She taught lifelong skills. I know I still use the lessons I learned from her. I’m sure the children do too!
