About Jeanne

Created from my own childhood trauma to give children the tools I never had growing up… My story begins at Uzenmyethu child care facility, GuGulethu Township, Cape Town, South Africa. Teaching yoga to children in the most poverty-stricken area of the western cape. It's here where I decided that I want to teach children life skills that could go beyond school,  and promote health and wellness in other areas of their life.

Over the past 10 years, I have been working with children with all types of backgrounds, sharing the gift of yoga. Noticing this growing need for change,  I wanted to create a training not just for Yoga Teachers, but for Parents, Teachers, Educators and Caregivers, anyone who wants to empower young minds to be in touch with their inner being; anyone who wants to empower young minds to be the best they can be. Anyone who wants to teach children to love who they are, body, mind & spirit. Anyone who wants to invest in themselves in a way that would benefit children and teens for years to come.

TESTIMONIAL from Sunrise School Bali

The benefits of mindfulness and yoga are unquestionable, Sunrise School Bali undertook Jeanne’s services and training this year across all areas of our school. As a result, we now have all of our teachers using consistent language and techniques with our students to support them in their emotional, social and behavioural journeys. At Sunrise, we believe all children learn best when they feel safe and supported, so her program has offered us a way to connect with our students on a deeper level. When children feel connected, they can learn. The Mindfulness activity card sets are a wonderful and practical tool for teachers to use in all classes, and at all times during the day. We often hear the children talking about the 'Sound Detectives' and 'The Belly Breath'.

Our teachers have also been through a personal journey, guided by Jeanne, in understanding how important their own well being and care is to their role as teacher. It was interesting for them to discover that the techniques Jeanne has given them for working with children are just as relevant for them as adults.

We highly recommend the services Jeanne provided and her training and tools for both teachers and children. We are very grateful to Jeanne for working with our teachers and allowing them to extend themselves both professionally and personally.

"...what an experience"

This was my first time taking any sort of yoga training for children and I'm so inspired. 

When I first signed myself up my intentions were to find more tools to work with children in a classroom setting. I have been working in International High Schools as a theatre teacher for many years, so I was hoping to discover more ideas to use with my students to encourage mindfulness, address performance anxiety, confidence and self-belief. 

These tools however not only provided me with a range of useful tools to weave into my work with older children but also an amazing range of ideas to use in my daily life with my own toddler. I hadn't expected such a comprehensive course introducing me to brain, physical and sensory development. 

I have taken several teacher trainings over the years but I have never walked away with such life-affirming and useful techniques - my heart is full. 

I am very grateful for totally recommend this course to anyone and everyone wanting to make a difference in the lives of children. Particularly those who want to more deeply understand their own child's development and parenting journey.

"...beyond expectations"

I booked this course not really having any expectations, I just knew that there was going to be a lot of information to squeeze into that amount of time. I loved EVERY. SINGLE. SECOND. Jeanne really has a way of capturing your attention & relaying information in a way that really makes you want to learn more, she opens a cosmos in your mind & is one of the most inspiring people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Being able to visit the school & really immerse ourselves in the practical part was honestly such a heart- warming experience. Connecting with youth in a different country & community really opens your eyes, I would 10000% recommend this course for anybody who not only works with or has kids but everybody interested in human psyche. This was such an amazing experience <3 Thank you Jeanne, Peaceful Warriors & Serenity for creating a beautiful experience :)
