Jeanette Doherty

A NYC transplant from Detroit, Michigan, Jeanette came to the East Coast and to yoga through her first passion—stage acting.  A practicing yogi since 2002, Jeanette transitioned from student to ever-learning teacher in 2014 through Tattva 200-hr teacher training with Keri Setaro and Paula Loose. In 2017, she completed her advanced training through Laughing Lotus NYC’s 300-hr Love School and began studying Katonah Yoga with the practices co-creator Abbie Galvin. Jeanette’s classes combine vigorous, creative flows with storytelling, inspiring students to take the curiosity, freedom and playfulness they find on the mat into the rest of their lives. In addition to fluid asana, classes include restorative elements, as well as deeper spiritual study through dharma, meditation, chanting and breath work. Expect to dance, sweat and surprise yourself as you safely explore challenging shapes and learn a little practical magic along the way. Outside the studio, Jeanette shares her life with a wonderfully nerdy data scientist, a playful pup named Stevie Nicks and a snaggletooth cat named Rufus.
