Featured Teacher: Jean Mazzei

It only takes one class with Jean and you fully feel the meaning of transformation. Her instruction, her hands on adjustments, creative flow and sense of humor is the perfect combination of what she best describes as lightening up and enlightenment.

Off the mat, Jean is equally as creative, fun and inspiring to get to know. We hope you enjoy getting to know Jean as much as we do!
