About the Instructor
Jeannie Faulkner is a licensed massage therapist, yoga teacher, and certified Ayurveda therapist with a Master’s degree in Education from Ohio University. She received her Ayurveda Therapist’s certification at Chakrapani Clinic and Research Center in Jaipur, India, and has studied bodywork and alternative and herbal therapies with several teachers in India and the US.
She embraces the philosophy that we all have the innate ability to heal our emotional, physical and spiritual bodies through our connection with the natural world and through a deeper understanding of our own nature, we can bring balance to our lives. The role of the practitioner is to be present and allow this awareness to take place within the client for true healing.
She is a lifelong learner and is currently attending Maharishi International University with the goal of receiving a Master's in Ayurveda. Jeannie has over 15 years of teaching Massage Therapy and Ayurveda and loves to share this ancient knowledge, while keeping her classes approachable and interesting.
