"No creature ever falls short of its own completion.

Jean Hindle is the founder of Soma Yoga and Soma Yoga & Dance Studio

  I have been a somatic movement educator, dancer, yoga & meditation teacher,
 in Seattle for 30 years.
My teaching draws strongly from Somatic disciplines (Hanna Somatics, Feldenkrais,
 Skinner Releasing Technique, Open Source Forms, The Alexander Technique,
Embodied Anatomy, Continuum, Body Mind Centering, BrainDance neurodevelopmental movement patterns),
meditation practices within the Zen and Tibetan Buddhist traditions, yoga and dance.
I founded Soma Yoga in 1998 & Soma Yoga & Dance Studio in 2003.
