Growing up I was very active and participated in sports. I got married, had a beautiful daughter and my focus quickly changed to taking care of my family. As the years passed, my age and weight inched up and I realized I couldn’t do all the things I used to. It wasn’t until my mom became ill and passed away that I realized it was time to take care of ME! At the age of 50, I hired a personal trainer and began working out 3 days a week. I lost weight and inches and felt so much better. With the support of my family and the encouragement of my trainer, I became a Certified Personal Trainer over 3 years ago and currently do in home personal training. I was introduced to hot yoga in the spring of 2010. I was surprised and pleased how yoga complimented my weight training regimen increasing my flexibility, balance and strength. I found yoga to be therapeutic, and learning how to breathe correctly further helped relax my mind and body. I love people and wondered how I could get involved. In April 2011, I received my Prenatal Certification from Blooma and currently teach the Relaxation class at Heat Studio and Prenatal Yoga at Synergy in White Bear Lake. I am thrilled to be part of the Heat family. Take control of your life…it’s never too late to start! Jeanne completed her 200 hour yoga certification through YogaWorks in June 2012.
