Jeanne can get you through to your true self just by helping you see your own body from the inside out.  With her encouragement toward conscious work, perhaps after prompting a little tear, her words make so much sense because they speak to your deepest self.

Jeanne is one of the most meticulous and thoughtful teachers I know.  Her classes are challenging because she demands that her students learn the poses in a way that will keep their bodies safe and healthy. Since she has been practicing herself for many years, her knowledge and understanding of yoga are deep. As a result, she imbues her classes with yoga philosophy as well as a warm, fun nature. I recommend her classes to anyone who wants a real understanding of yoga and a way to deepen their practice.

Jeanne is a constant reminder of what a truly compassionate instructor should be. She is an inspiration and one of the most important reasons I had the courage to become a teacher. Thank you for believing in me.

Jeanne is a generous, passionate person and a wonderful yoga instructor. Her knowledge of the yoga asanas and her ability to teach them is exacting. However, it is all the deeper parts of yoga that Jeanne brings to class that make her extra special. In the midst of a very strong workout, Jeanne addresses the whole person: the subtle body, direction of breath, intention, visualization, a bit of mantra and more. Her classes often are sequenced and guided to achieve a particular effect, right when that effect is needed. You leave feeling incredibly centered and balanced.

Jeanne is not what I would describe as your conventional Yoga Teacher and for this reason is why I sought her out as my mentor.  Traditional wisdom would have us think that a Yoga teacher should be teaching us to quell our anxiety and fears.  I did not want to retreat into my comfort zone. I wanted my practice and Self to go beyond what I know as truth and that which I am already comfortable.  Jeanne lovingly guides you to search outside your boundaries to develop, grow and heal.  I willingly accept the path of yielding and growth that Jeanne offers as opposed to one of static development and knowing.  I know I am physically and spiritually stronger, braver and more capable of meeting any challenge in my life as a result of Jeanne's guidance.

I had the pleasure of being one of her students in a Hip Openers workshop at Yoga House in Pasadena.  In a very packed room, I am sure that I was the least flexible person there, but thanks to her support (and a few adjustments in my poses), I never felt out of place.  It was a wonderful experience and I walked out of the class feeling both flexible and tranquil.

What I love most about Jeanne's class is that she is constantly encouraging her students to get in touch with how they are feeling in that present moment and to practice accordingly. There's always wisdom to take off the mat and into the world.

I've been blessed to have Jeanne Heileman as my yoga teacher.  I not only learned yoga, I also learned how to practice balance in my life through my practice.  Thank you for your encouragement to practice love with all that I do.

Before I started taking classes with Jeanne, my shoulder was in so much pain that I was in fear of having to abandon my yoga practice, which I dearly love.  One yoga instructor had advised me that surgery was probably the only route to correcting the problem… and then I took Jeanne’s class, and she made a few adjustments to my alignment, provided some critical tips on maintaining downward dog, and voila! Here I am five years later, practicing pain-free yoga daily and healthier than I have ever been before. Thanks, Jeanne!  You have helped to bring great peace and contentment to my life.

Just as yoga has become the treasure map to lead me towards the inner jewels within my being...Jeanne Heileman has been at times the lens in my reading glasses that helps me see more clearly my path and in other moments a guide when I was lost completely or just needed to rest. Her knowledge of the biomechanics of the postures is only superseded by the message that yoga is more than the pose it is a journey of the heart.

I personally credit Jeanne Heileman and the depth of her yoga teaching for all the good things that have come from my ongoing practice.  Her instruction was the clearest I have ever received from a yoga teacher.  She shared so much with us that I feel if I remember only a small fraction of what she taught, I can be a better yoga teacher than all the other teachers I've experienced in my twenty years of practicing yoga.  I honestly hear comments about the excellent quality of my yoga teaching skills on a regular basis.  Every positive comment that I receive is truly a direct result of Jeanne's teaching. There are many great yoga teachers out there, but none better than Jeanne Heileman.

As a teacher, one of many things about Jeanne that I try to emulate is her humanity. She’s definitely in control of a room, and yet she’s not afraid to expose her vulnerabilities and be a real person, especially if you train with her to be a teacher. I’m very grateful for that. She has a canny ability to tie the philosophy of yoga with real life.

Jeanne is a teacher's teacher. Her specific language, minute corrections, and gentle touch are something to emulate. Jeanne's teaching comes from a place of experience and love, creating a safe place for students to face their challenges and deepen their practices. Studying with Jeanne changed my practice and my life in ways I never could have expected. I am deeply grateful for the tools she has shared with me, and know I will never be the same.
