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.
I founded Soma Yoga in 1998 & Soma Yoga & Dance Studio in 2003.
My teaching draws strongly from Somatic disciplines (Hanna Somatics, Feldenkrais,
 Skinner Releasing Technique, Open Source Forms, The Alexander Technique,
Embodied Anatomy, Continuum and BrainDance).
