All of my events are created with care and love and are unique opportunities to grow as a yogi and human.

One of my most favorite things is bringing different people together and seeing them enjoy each other’s company.

You will find a variety of experiences to learn more about a specific topic or share elongated time together on a journey. Each event is a created community where you can feel welcome, safe, and make new friends.  No one is left out.

My heart bursts when I see a group be touched by the teachings and care for each other. It is also a joy to be immersed within a unique culture for it expands our view, bringing more flavor and sensitivity to other ways of living. All of my events come from a desire to dive deeper into an untapped direction or topic in the world of yoga which will enrich our life and practice. Nothing is offered unless it truly is worthwhile.

Bringing the Stories of Yoga to Life

Bringing the Stories of Yoga to Life

2 Days: April 29-30, 2023
Sat: 2:30 – 7:30 pm |  Sun: 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

There will be breaks throughout the day.
Live in person in Athens, Greece.
Also available livestream and on demand.

Did you know that many of the names of the yoga postures are in reference to a deity or animal that had a specific role in the Hindu mythology? When we learn the background for a name, it helps us embody the intention for the posture. This increases the value of our experience as we cultivate that specific energy and focus in the pose.

Come join Jeanne Heileman as we move through two days of yoga practicing asana from the rich historical perspective. After a break we spend time talking about the sages, deities and supporting roles in the day’s practice. We close with a mediation practice influenced by the theme.

Day One: The Warriors and Their Friends
Day Two: The Ancient Sages and Their Wisdom

Hosted by Anna Zorzou

Spain Retreat arch

Retreat: Magical Yoga Escape to the Southern Tip of Spain; Journey Through the Five Pranas

8 Days: May 4 – 11, 2023
Thursday (4) 6:00 pm – Thursday (11) 10:00 am
Spain: We will stay in a majestic large villa at 8km from bohemian Tarifa and its wonderful beaches, in the province of Cádiz, Southern Spain.

When we think about breathing, most of us think of simply inhaling and exhaling. According to the traditional yogic perspective however, there are actually five specific channels for breathing. These breathing pathways can have either a positive or negative effect on a pose, on the function of our body and how our mind operates.

Join Jeanne Heileman on a journey through the Five Pranas while we bask in a glorious region of Spain that is full of Prana. Each day will be devoted to one of the Vayus through asana, Pranayama and meditation practices. Morning yoga sessions will offer stronger practices with insights to continue Walking Practices throughout the day. Afternoon practices will weave in more Pranayama and Meditation to feel the subtle effects of each direction. On our last day we will weave all five Pranas together, the ultimate experience of respiration and Pranayama practice.

You will leave knowing how to get more out of each breath, enriching both your yoga practice and your life.

Students who attend all of the classes and any fun assignments will be eligible to receive 25 hours of Continuing Education credits through Yoga Alliance from Tantra Flow Yoga™.

Retreat with Jeanne to Spain

Retreat: The Bhagavad Gita; How to Practice Yoga While Living in the World

3 Days: May 19 – 21, 2023
9:00 am – 12:30 pm and 2:30 – 5:00 pm
Spain:
The practices will take place at Earth Yoga studio in Palma de Mallorca.

Palma has a variety of Airbnb and hotel options and the city is filled with wonderful restaurants, a beautiful beachfront, and more to explore on your time off.

Come join Jeanne Heileman in three days of exploring this beautiful scripture through asana, pranayama and meditation, as well as pouring through the poetry. You will learn how Arjuna’s struggle mirrors our personal struggle of doubt and faithlessness. By applying Krishna’s wisdom to our own problems, we can find a method of defeating the enemies in our minds and live peacefully, amidst our current challenges. This knowledge is vital as the world continues to change in ways that we cannot fully understand.

We will meet in the city of Palma, on the island of Mallorca, Spain, at the Earth Yoga studio. There will be ample time to explore the city and taste its delights, from wonderful restaurants and shops, to beautiful beaches, and time in nature. This is a perfect opportunity to practice with some of the lessons from the Gita as we manage the dance of study, practice, and play.

Due to the inner focus, Participating Yogis are encouraged to have a minimum of one year of steady asana experience to ensure their safety, or be approved by the Earth Yoga faculty.

We will be using the translation of the Bhagavad Gita by Eknath Easwaran; all other translations are also welcome.

Students who complete the whole course will receive a 20-Hours of Continuing Education Credits certificate from Tantra Flow Yoga™ that is approved by Yoga Alliance. (A small homework piece will round out the hours.)

Falling in Love with the Bhagavad Gita Workshop

Workshop: Tantra and the Yoga Sutras; Magical Energetics

3 Days: June 9-11, 2023
9:00 am – 4:00 pm / 1 hr lunch

In person at YogaKula, Austria

The Yoga Sutras from Patanjali are some of the oldest scriptures on yoga, written as aphorisms, (short sayings or proverbs,) which have layers and layers of meaning within the lines. The Sankhya Philosophy, a dualistic perspective, was very popular at the time so many see the Sutras as a dualistic text. However, there is a strong presence of Tantra, a non-dualistic perspective, woven throughout the scripture. This course takes students through the first three chapters to clarify any misunderstandings and then to see the Tantric messages woven within the lines.

The great concept of Samadhi will be illumed, clarity will be brought to complicated verses, and Tantric practices will be taught that support the text’s messages.

Each day will open with an hour and half of asana, pranayama and meditation that supports the day’s themes. You will learn how the messages of the Sutras apply to our practice and to our life off the mat. There will be group discussion, stories, and inner discovery; all mixed with lots of humor. Afternoon sessions will close with Pranayama and Meditation practices influenced by the lessons learned.

You will leave with a newfound appreciation for this scripture as a resource for living life meaningfully.

We will be using The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali translated by Sri Swami Satchidananda as a group. Students are welcome to bring additional translations for comparison.

It is such an honor to be invited to participate in an online yoga festival hosted by one of my dearest teachers, Kofi Busia. (https://www.kofibusia.com/index.php)

Kofi Busia is one of the world’s foremost teachers in the Iyengar tradition. He has been teaching for nearly 40 years, and has held his Advanced Certificate for 35 years. He has taught, and is recognized, all over the world. He began yoga as a student at Oxford and has taught professionally ever since. Throughout the 1970’s and up until the mid-1980’s, he studied regularly with B. K. S. Iyengar, and directly from him on a regular basis at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in Pune, Maharashtra, South India.

I met Kofi many years ago and was moved by his profound passion for the practice while also teaching with the ingredients of humor and gentleness. Kofi has helped me through a number of physical limitations and I am ever grateful for his wisdom and care.

This festival is filled with leaders in the world of yoga and I am humbled to be on the same faculty level. There has not been an event like this in a very long time, it is worth every effort to participate.
