Talking Yoga & Green Drinks with Jeanette Pearson from Haute Yoga

Lauryn Evarts, fitness blogger and health blogger talks yoga and skinny tips.

When I practice yoga, I take Jeanette’s class. Not only is she a challenging teacher, she has taught me how to breathe, tighten up my core, & lengthen my body. Here we talk yoga, yoga, & more yoga:

+ Introduce yourself.

My name is Jeanette and I am a life & yoga enthusiast! I began study­ing yoga at the age of seventeen, then became a ded­i­cated prac­ti­tioner of yoga in Santa Cruz, Cal­i­for­nia, where I under­went a teacher’s train­ing process begin­ning in 2004 & received my yoga cer­ti­fi­ca­tion in War­rior Yoga in 2006. In 2011, I under­went a two hundred hour teacher train­ing pro­gram through Yoga­Works under the guid­ance and instruc­tion of Stacy McCarthy & Jes­sica Seabern. Through­out my yoga jour­ney, I have had the oppor­tu­nity to study multi­ple styles of yoga includ­ing Hatha, War­rior, Ash­tanga, Anusara, Iyen­gar, Vinyasa, Syn­ergy, & Bikram in var­i­ous set­tings includ­ing North­ern and South­ern Cal­i­for­nia, Turkey, & Thai­land. I have had the priv­i­lege of study­ing under and being influ­enced by sev­eral extra­or­di­nary instruc­tors includ­ing Michael Fuku­mura, Rev­erend Tom Kelly, Jes­sica Seabern, Stacy McCarthy, Peri Ness-DeFay, Sen­sei Jeremy Cor­bell, and Sen­sei Kevin Snorf. I am also the Man­ager of the Haute Yoga stu­dio in Solana Beach. She feels hon­ored and blessed to be a part of such an incred­i­ble com­mu­nity of yoga. Check out my website and class schedule here.

+ Best part of yoga?

Attuning to the suttlties of life itself!!! The practice of breaking down the boundaries of the mind & experiencing deep levels of freedom through the breath.

+ How does yoga change your body?

Yoga strengthens, opens & balances the body, promoting the body to function at its optimal capacity!

+ What should you eat before and after yoga?

There are many schools of thought on this. One method is to make sure not to eat within two hours of practice & to maintain a vegetarian diet. This works for many, but NOT for everyone! You do not need to be a vegetarian to do yoga. My recommendation: eat in a way that makes you feel vibrantly alive! Allow food to by your medicine & medicine to be your food.

+ Favorite pre or post yoga smoothie?

YES!!! Water, banana, & spinach is WONDERFUL [ similar to the Yogi Green Smoothie Drink found here ]. You can add rice protein [ Sun Warrior brand, for extra protein if you want go the vegan, raw route ]. One other thing you can use is spirulina protein!

 + Effective yoga move you can do from home?

Cat/cow- opens the spine. It promotes healthy funtion in the spinal highway which makes way for healthy posture & open body!

  1. Great post! I love gym classes, but didn’t get to love yoga till couple months ago. I guess I just didn’t click with the teachers. Now the I found mine, I enjoy yoga so much! I used to have some problems with my spine, and I don’t any more. I also should mention that I used to dance professionally and no cardio workouts or my dancing practices made me look as toned as yoga did. Great workout for body and mind!

  2. my cousin is all about yoga, she’s been trying to get me to do it with her for forever! i’ve done it a few times and it is totally relaxing and awesome.

  3. Yoga helped me find myself, as cheesy as it sounds. I was suffering through an eating disorder and turned to yoga throughout recovery. It helped teach me to love my body and take care of it for what it does for me, not what I wish it looked like. A few years later, I got certified to hopefully give the gift of yoga to others. Lovely post.

  4. Lauryn,

    Thank you for being you!!!!! You are a light and a gift. Thank you for adding presence, peace, and beauty so abundantly on this planet.

    Sending you HUGE Hugs,


  5. Hi Jeannette,
    You are the best! Such amazing flexibility and concentration!
    So much enthusiasm and dedication. Always loved your smiles and upbeat energy in Thailand.
    You had a birthday there I remember.
