Movement & Meditation


This class is taught by:

Lindsay Jensen-Evans

I was drawn to the mysticism and spirituality of yoga and began practicing via VHS tape in the nineties! After finding a teacher, taking a handful of classes and learning to really breathe I was able to quiet my restless mind and find sleep. It was years (and plenty of practice) later that I experienced an “ah-ha” yet pivotal realization: “I am not my monkey-mind and even better … I can quiet it through focus on the breath!”
I have an insatiable appetite for learning and have completed multiple leadership and yoga teacher trainings. It wasn’t until completing Just Be Yoga’s Teacher Training that I chose to share my love of yoga and healing through teaching. For me, teaching is being the ultimate student. It’s the best kind of practice I’ve ever experienced!


Why Yoga
To remember and express who I really am.


Who or what inspires you?
People who are living their best, fully self-expressed lives inspire me. Genuine love and service for others inspires me. Also ideas: I love a good brainstorm.


Three adjectives that describe you and your teaching style
Empowering. Learning. Love.


Where are you most fearlessly authentic in your life?
Self-love and acceptance is my life’s work and it is a daily, moment-to-moment practice. When I am my most authentic self I am on my mat: sweating-balls, singing my heart out, and in community.


What is something not a lot of people know about you?
I have a two-year-old son some of my friends call “Blue Ivy”. Also, I have a degree in Medical Anthropology with a focus on Peruvian Shamanism.

Laura Perkins

I have been on a lifelong journey with Yoga, beginning when I was a child, right here in the Bay Area, with a PBS TV show Lilias Yoga and You. After that introduction my Yoga laid dormant, for decades, until the 1990's, when I began taking classes at a local gym. I immediately fell back in love with the feeling of feeling, and practiced regularly for years. In 2007 I decided teaching might be for me. I took my first yoga training that year and then my second in 2016. I am a believer, and I get such a deep sense of gratitude when I am able to share Yoga with others.
 
 

Why yoga?
Yoga transcends my mind into my body, and lets me feel. I love the feeling of energy moving and flowing, with no expectation of outcome.


Who or what inspires you?
Life's ups and downs inspire me to be my best, and show up in the most authentic way possible. To be of service, and to love fully.


Three adjectives that describe you and your teaching style:
Dynamic. Friendly. Personal.

 

What is something not a lot of people know about you?
I love to spend time talking to the angels.

Kelli Barnett

 
Why yoga?
I love living my life around a system of health. And yoga always has something for every phase of life. Athletic, contemplative, healing, creative. Whatever your interest, or ability, yoga has a branch growing in that direction. One can be introspective and calm or externally manifested. With study and the teachings all can be expressions of a healthy body and mind.
And It's fun to feel your life. It's fun to help other people feel their lives.
 

Who or what inspires you?
All aspects of the natural world when it is free and unfettered. I believe when we love the vivid blue of the sky or the white of snow we are loving ourselves and feeling the sensation of gratitude for our lives. Then I try to invite that feeling of space, and sensation of gratitude to the shapes and postures that are within my reach to teach.


Three adjectives that describe you and your teaching style:
Slightly unpredictable. Spontaneous. I don't know another adjective but I do know the phrase I've heard the most over the years is "I never know where I'm going in your class, but I like where I end up"

 

Where are you the most fearlessly authentic in your life?
When I've done my homework and I call sincerely to the "teachers' and then I just wait for the words and sequence to flow. In short- when I'm waiting and fully expecting the sparks of creativity to fly.


What is something not a lot of people know about you?
I really want to go to cheese making school.

 

Danielle Jackman

I started taking yoga classes when I lived in San Francisco during college. From the moment I left my first class, I knew that there was something that undoubtedly set yoga apart from any other activity I had tried. There was an instant connection and draw to keep practicing. Not long after that first class, becoming a yoga teacher became my absolute dream. I continued to practice through the years at various studios, and finally landed at Just Be, where I found my home. I completed the teacher training in Fall 2016 and shortly thereafter completed a mentorship with Malia Hill.

 

Why yoga?
Yoga allows me to feel at home in my body and allows me to appreciate who I innately am. Yoga allows me to live in love, rather than in fear. Yoga keeps me aligned with my passion, with myself, and with my path.

 

Who or what inspires you?
My teachers inspire me for many reasons, but most prominently for their ability to so powerfully share parts of themselves every time they teach a class.

 

Three adjectives that describe you and your teaching style:
Tenacious. Compassionate. Honest.

 

Where are you the most fearlessly authentic in your life?
I am most fearlessly authentic in my career and in starting my own healing business. I now wake up and love what I do for a living.

 


What is something not a lot of people know about you?
Surfing comes in at a close second to yoga on my list of favorite hobbies. I love the ocean and am convinced I was a dolphin or mermaid in a past life.

Why yoga?
Yoga has been one of the most effective practices to ground, balance, clear, and awaken me to the best version of myself. I come back to my mat over and over to feel lighter, brighter, and more connected. The trainings and intensives light up my soul and empower me in endless ways.

Who or what inspires you?
I am most inspired when I am creating and co-creating with others who are equally passionate about passing along the wisdom and teachings that lead to breakthroughs and awakening.

Three adjectives that describe you and your teaching style:
Flowing, spiritual, and empowering.

Where are you the most fearlessly authentic in your life?
On my yoga mat & in a ThetaHealing® session. These two practices have gifted me with tools to be authentic and fearless and clear the self-limiting bullsh*t. It’s a practice, a daily practice, that I bring into my life as a teacher, mentor, leader, wife, sister, and friend. Living and sharing the teachings requires me to be fearlessly authentic over and over again.

What is something not a lot of people know about you?
I spent 10 years working in the sports industry. I was a professional cheerleader for the San Jose Saber Cats during my junior and senior year of college then went on to work for the Sacramento River Cats in Corporate Sponsorship Sales & Marketing.
