About Jean

I am a yoga teacher living in Vermont. I started taking yoga classes when I was a free spirited hippie in my early 20’s in a rural town near me. On that Saturday morning, I had no idea that yoga would later become an integral part of my life. I just knew at that time that I felt great when I did yoga. I continued for quite some time taking classes. Eventually, I realized I wanted to make yoga something more than an occasional thing in my life. I attended my first yoga certification training to teach kids about yoga at Omega Institute in Rhinebeck N. Y. in 2001. After that, I started offering yoga classes in my local library for children and teens. This led to more student classes. Adults began to ask me if I would teach them so I started teaching adult classes. I have led workshops and yoga classes ever since then.

Fast forward to present day where I am still teaching tween, teen and adult yoga and mindfulness classes. I have seen the power of yoga and meditation to help people develop better flexibility but more importantly they find peace in their minds after practicing. My goal is to have you feel better after class than how you felt when you started.

Testimonials

I have been fortunate to be able to experience Yoga with Jean for the last 3 years through my workplace wellness program. Jean is able to break down instruction in a manner that feels comfortable to the beginner as well as the more experienced Yoga student. She combines strength, flexibility and calming experiences that always leave me looking forward to my next class! Mychelle Rieder


"I like yoga because if you are really stressed out then it calms you down." Ben C. - 5th Grader


"My first ever experience with yoga was a few years ago with Jean Campbell. Her pace and ability to give direction to a physically coordinated challenged person is quite incredible. The benefits I get from participating in her yoga classes are both physical and mental in nature. Yoga impacts my mind in a peaceful yet focused way. Yoga also gives me the needed stretching that ends up having a lasting effect. I love the time spent on the focus of breath and pose. You do not have to think about anything else yet what you have to think about can feel immense. It feels good and positive that I have spent time on myself and that has a physical benefit. It lifts my spirit and I think about my breathing, my posture and opening my heart. I think the key for me to keeping a regular yoga practice is joining Jean’s class. The other area yoga helps me is something to look forward to during the day!" Mame Grossman – MMUHS Special Educator, Jericho, VT


I love downhill skiing, water skiing, road and mountain biking. Recently I went back to practicing yoga in a class setting with Jean Campbell. Her classes are serious fun! While the origins of yoga are spiritual, and its quiet, meditative aspects should be honored, Jean manages to be light about it as well, and so we also laugh in class. I am 63 years old and my job requires me to make presentations and carry myself well in front of others. Yoga keeps me moving with good posture and a positive attitude. My mind feels more focused when my body feels strong, loose and alive from an hour of yoga. What keeps me regular in my practice is how good I feel doing it, and knowing I will feel good for the rest of the day. Most importantly for me, a consistent yoga practice has improved my performance in the sports I love. This goal, this reward, is probably the strongest motivator for getting me out of bed so early to attend class with Jean. I still enjoy keeping up with, or even leading, younger skiers on a powder day! Randy Rowland - President - Teamworks, LLC Shelburne, VT


Hey I really enjoyed doing yoga. Even though it was harder than I expected it to be, it was fun and I felt strengthened. Emilie C. - 8th grader


"Yoga has been very helpful to me both physically and spiritually. I love the focus that it gives me first thing in the morning to block out all the daily crises and just focus on centering on myself. While this sounds selfish, it is not. It makes me a better person at home and at work as I am able to focus on the needs of my family and my business after I have centered myself early that morning. From the physical perspective, I have improved my flexibility and strength tremendously by performing yoga in Jean’s class over these many years. Thanks for keeping me on track at yoga!"
