Ann MacMullan Jeans is a certified yoga instructor (RYT 200) and teaches in the Philadelphia area.  Ann believes in the healing power of yoga and meditation for everyone, no matter what age, level of fitness, or life circumstance. She is especially passionate about working with the non-traditional yoga population that may not be able to make it to a yoga studio. Ann has also completed Trauma Informed Yoga Training. More about Ann.  Team Sun Yoga owes it all to Ann’s grandmother Ellie, who had been very active and became wheelchair bound.  As a way to bring more activity into Ellie’s life, Ann decided she wanted to teach yoga to seniors, and so with her partner Brian, they started a yoga program that has expanded to diverse locations in the Philadelphia area.
