Yoga with Jan
Jan works with students to improve posture and stay safe from injury through good alignment. She incorporates the Universal Principles of Alignment which she learned from John Friend, founder of Anusara Yoga, as well as other techniques developed through four decades of person practice and thirty-five years of teaching.
Jan’s intention is to create a personalized yoga practice for each student in a supportive, loving, non-judgemental atmosphere.
