Jeanne’s journey to Bikram Yoga began with a deep realization that if she were to save her life she would need to change it, entirely. An actor, she arrived in NYC in search of fame and fortune but instead found drugs and alcohol. Penniless and homeless she checked herself into a long-term residential rehab facility where she would finally detox all drugs. But when she re-entered the world, the physical damage to her body from intravenous drug use was taking its toll as well as her inability to focus and concentrate and that is when her friend stepped in and bought her a 30-day Bikram Yoga introductory package, which turned out to be the missing puzzle piece in her recovery. Jeanne is the proud recipient of Bikram’s 2010 Teacher Training Scholarship. Her mission is to teach all people, especially recovering drug addicts, that no matter how bad you think it is, it's never too late to start from the scratch, one posture at a time. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/13/fashion/13Mirror.html
