"I am grateful to have met Jeannie when I first moved to Bend several years ago. I took her Hatha Yoga classes and loved her peaceful presence and clear, concise manner of teaching. I wanted to learn more about yoga and immerse myself in yoga. I enrolled in Teacher Training at Yoga Indigo. The course was comprehensive and steeped in the thousands year old traditions of yoga. My experience was challenging, rewarding and joyful!" - Amy Meader, Bend, 2013

"Thank you for your encouragement to follow my heart and find the strength to overcome my fears and doubts. This training program has allowed me the chance to grow and change and truly become more of who I am.
