About Jean Mazzei:

 Jean Mazzei in a complex yoga poseJean Mazzei, (E-RYT 500), has logged over 10,000 teaching hours. Often called “teacher’s teacher,” she is an expert in the subtleties of yoga sadahana (practices), and bringing the practices to life off the mat. Her philosophy is to inspire students to better understand themselves and support them in discovering who they really are. In her practical approach to yoga, it is Jean’s belief that one of the keys to enlightenment is to literally “lighten up” so having fun is always a part of the process. Her sense of humor and commitment to non-judgment provide a safe place for students to explore, break boundaries, and release layers of physical, emotional, and psychic weight. She inspires and supports everyone in finding the path that is right for them.


Jean’s quest for healing herself and finding the truth within has guided her education. Jean’s studies include four years with Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen in BodyMind Centering, 14 years with master healer and metaphysician Dennis Adams, yoga with Dr. Albert Franklin (TKS Desikachar lineage), B.K.S. Iyengar, Baron Baptiste, Rod Stryker, Ana Forrest, and Dharma Mittra. She is currently studying the ancient Tantric teachings of the Sri Vidya lineage with Pandit Rajmani Tigunait and Rod Stryker. Being of the school of “Whatever Works,” she believes that one size does not fit all when it comes to yoga. Learn more about Jean here.
