who am i?

Well, hello there!  Thanks for stopping by. 

My name is Jeanette and I'm a yoga instructor, detoxification specialist (ISOD),  plant-based advocate, blogger and podcaster over at ‘Planted in Miami’.

Over ten years ago, I fell in love with the practice of yoga and it has changed me for the better. I'm not a gymnast, or a dancer or contortionist that can bend into beautiful, elegant poses.  I'm just someone who loves to practice yoga, do breathing exercises and meditate. Our bodies crave movement and breath, yoga allows you to release what doesn't serve you and invite in what does. 

I became a Registered Yoga Teacher because I want to help everyone feel the amazing feelings I've felt and continue to feel on and off the mat. In 2014, I became a Detoxification Specialist because I feel passionately about living a plant-based lifestyle and actively detoxing our bodies from the constant bombardment of toxins (read my healing journey here).

I’m also the co-host of the podcast ‘Planted in Miami’ where every other week we interview inspiring locals who are moving the city forward through their actions.  The podcast was named an iTunes ‘New and Noteworthy’ and has been written up in the New Times and recognized on various blogs.    

So where did "OM the moment” come from? It's my philosophy, or way of life. In yoga, we say OM at the beginning and ending of class as a way to connect our mind and body. This notion of complete presence, regardless of what's going on, is what led me to this philosophy.  How can I carry this into my daily life?  By checking in (and I don't mean to Facebook) and finding balance each day via mind, body and soul.

We can't control what happens to us, but we can control how we react. Visit the OTM blog for weekly inspirations.
