Jeanette is empowered by the healing and calming nature of yoga to stay in the moment, welcome change and to manifest opportunities in life. As a physical therapist she expertly understands how physical alignment, muscle strength and flexibility affect our lives. Her classes are deliberate and challenging with an eye to bolster an awareness of inner connections within sustainable postures. Students experience growth, a lingering stillness and energy in their practice that extends beyond the time on the mat. She continues to be fascinated by the complexity of the human body and motivated by her patients and students to learn. Jeanette has studied with Shannon Paige, Gina Caputo, Mary Taylor and Loren Fishman. Her teachers inspire her to cultivate creativity, face adversity and offer herself fully. Jeanette’s experience as a physical therapist and yoga teacher has taught her that the power of traditional therapies combined with mind-body awareness developed through the practice of yoga can empower people to build a sustainable path to a greater level of well being. She strives to facilitate a client’s return to the activities they enjoy.


More about Jeanette. Practicing physical therapy with the intent to help her patients return to the activities they enjoy, Jeanette, offers a unique skill set. She has earned multiple certifications as a manual physical therapist, in yoga for osteoporosis, functional dry needling, strength and conditioning specialist, and prenatal/postpartum exercise instructor. Her practice focuses on male and female pelvic health and muscle and joint dysfunction in the spine and extremities. Patients gain a sense of empowerment to manage their symptoms, to increase strength and mobility and to return to their activities. Jeanette is truly committed to learning and professional growth. She has lectured in the Boulder community on incontinence, pelvic pain, prostate cancer, prenatal/postpartum exercise, osteoporosis and workstation evaluation. Outside the clinic she enjoys numerous outdoor adventures on foot, bike and skis with her husband.


A personal note on yoga in my life. A number of years ago, I suffered a shoulder injury and was unable to attend regular yoga classes. I instead signed up for a series of privates with my teacher, Shannon Paige Kenney, ERYT-500. She taught me a standing sequence that I practiced at home. It was carefully designed to address my imbalances, offered core awareness and quietly supported my shoulder as it healed. Most of all it gave me something to “do” while my body healed. I offer yoga-based rehab sessions to create a practice to support your healing process after an injury.
