About Me

Jean McDonald

(RYT 200, Certified Radiant Child Yoga Instructor, MFA in Theatre, BMED) has been practicing yoga since 2000, and it has transformed her life. She believes that listening to your body and following your intuition will lead you to health and vitality, and she enjoys teaching others how to tune in to their own inner guidance as they practice. Jean attended The Institute for Social and Emotional Learning in 2018, and she recently finished special training in Yoga for Children with ADHD, Autism and those who are Differently-abled. Jean is a key member of the Create Calm management team as well as a Radiant Child Yoga Instructor, and she spends a great deal of time each week teaching yoga and mindfulness to children in Maryland and Washington DC. 

Before becoming a yoga teacher, Jean had a long-standing career in education and the arts. She taught general music, theatre and creative movement to elementary age students; choral music, public speaking and theatre to middle and high school students; and drama to students with learning disabilities. Jean is thrilled to be blending her experience as an arts educator with her skills as a wellness advocate to empower children of all ages to be their best.
