Jean Lacovara, CYT, RYT 200, MBSR Graduate - Jean began her study of yoga as a teenager reading books and trying poses in her bedroom. But without a teacher, her practice was incomplete. In 2000, she started taking all the yoga classes she could find. After many years of practice and study in various styles of yoga, she finally took a teacher training with Barbara Paulsen at Yoga Inspired in Pitman, NJ which helped her deepen her practice and introduced her to meditation. She completed the MBSR course at Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia, PA to deepen her meditation practice and mindfulness training. Her yoga practice has evolved to encompass asana, meditation, and pranayama (breathing) techniques. She is eager to share her long time love affair with yoga, and hopes to inspire others that they can use yoga to build a personal practice that works for them.
When Jean is not on her mat or cushion, she can often be found outside, hiking in the woods with her family, gardening, or tending her chickens. She also loves to travel, read, and make food to eat with friends and family.
