“At the center of your being you have the answer. You know who you are and you know what you want. There is no need to run outside for better seeing, nor to peer from a window. Rather abide at the center of your being for the more you leave it, the less you learn.” Lao Tzu


DCF 1.0Jean Marie Hays has a B.S.E. degree in Occupational Health and Safety from the University of Wisconsin. She has honed her skills as a teacher and healing arts practitioner and developed her natural intuitive and healing abilities through more than thirty years of working with individuals and groups. She has taught mindfulness based stress management in businesses and led yoga and wellness retreats in the U.S and in Europe.

Jean Marie was first drawn to yoga for the sheer joy of being in her body. At 13, finding a book by Swami Satchidananda, she began her own practice. Teaching others was natural; she wanted to share. So she began showing her neighborhood friends yoga postures. Her joy became her passion for helping others.


Jean Marie is a gifted teacher, whose work I highly respect and recommend. She has a keen ability to meet the individual where they are, and brings her years of dedicated studies and teaching to each meeting of an individual. Her loving presence provides a nurturing environment for growth, health and healing to unfold naturally.
