Teacher Spotlight Tuesday

Name:  Jeanne Clauer

Hometown:  Coon Rapids

Classes taught at Heat:  

Gentle Flow, Heat A

How long have you been teaching?

3 1/2 years

Why became a teacher?

Teaching and helping people are a passion of mine. I love people!

Favorite pose and why?

Savasana.  Because it allows me to absorb my practice, relax and renew my body.  I always feel better after practice.

Favorite tune to hear in class? 

I like all kinds of music. 

Motivational tip or favorite quote?

Courage doesn’t always roar.  Sometimes courage if the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, “I will try again tomorrow”.

Advice to beginners? 

Pay attention to your body and how it feels.  Remember to breathe.   

Where can we find you when not at Heat?

Spending time with family and friends

Who knew (fun bit of info about you)?

I was the high school mascot in my sophomore year

What do you emphasize in your class?

Breathing    What would you like students to gain from your class?  Staying connected to your breath calms the body and quiets the mind. Helps to slow down the beating of your heart and lowers blood pressure.  So focusing on breath is not only good in class but helpful outside of class as well. 

Tell us about other jobs (other than yoga teacher) that you do or what you did before teaching yoga:

I was a Development Specialist (trainer - teacher) for CenterPoint Energy until recently retiring.

What have you learned about yourself, on the mat that is applicable to life off the mat?

Every day is a new experience.  Live with patience and stay connected with breath. 

What difference have you noticed in your body or overall health since practicing yoga?  

I am more flexible, my core is stronger and I’ve learned how to breathe correctly.
