Neen completed a 200-hour interdisciplinary yoga teacher training at Mind the Mat in Alexandria, VA. The curriculum included a study of yoga history and philosophy, yogic lifestyle and ethics, anatomy and physiology, teaching and practice of asanas, meditations, pranayamas, chants, and mantras, yoga business, and a basic understanding of therapeutic yoga and prenatal yoga principles. Curious at heart, they continue learning through daily practice and other training opportunities. Neen has attended trainings on yoga for eating disorders and therapeutic yoga. Most recently they honed their skills in hot hatha yoga.

As a teacher, Neen has over 1000 hours of experience and strives to offer yoga experiences that allow students to discover sattva,or balance both during practice and in their daily lives. They share classes and workshops in the Washington, DC metro area, and delights in sharing the mindfulness practices that have brought positive focus, peace, and a deeper connection with others into their own life.
