Yoga teacher trainer JEAN CAMPBELL
Jean has been teaching yoga for over 20 years and training yoga teachers for 13 years in Australia, Malaysia, China, Germany and Switzerland. Over the years she has taught and practiced Iyengar yoga, Ashtanga yoga, Vinyasa yoga and Pre and post-natal yoga. She specialises in teaching anatomy and structural yoga therapy.
Jean’s approach to teaching:
“All the information we learn can only be useful if we are able to apply it in our practice and our lives. This is the basis for my teaching. Practical useful information that can be directly applied to your yoga practice to create a stronger, healthier, more mobile body as well as creating calmer states of mind to help us live a full and meaningful life."
What she enjoy about training teachers and future teachers:
"People who decide to do a workshop, course or teacher training obviously have a great interest in yoga. I love to share my passion for yoga with others and explore all the possibilities that yoga offers. Seeing the dedication and enthusiasm of students is inspiring. These times give us the opportunity to be in a ‘yoga bubble’, allowing time and space for introspection, learning and change that we rarely experience in our day to day lives. To be a part of this process is a joy and a privilege."
