Yoga

Jan is a professional artist, entrepreneur, non-profit founder, and busy mother who uses yoga in her daily life to improve physical condition, enhance the mind-body connection, and promote optimal physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Currently pursuing certification through the American Association of Fitness Professionals, Jan teaches to fellow military veterans and their families through a non-profit organization that she founded devoted to holistic wellness. She often incorporates yoga into art classes, career counseling sessions, and other offerings to encourage awareness of the physical and emotional bodies, remove blockages, spark creativity, and enhance the overall well-being that is vital to sustained success on any front. As a military veteran, former personal trainer, and former high level competitive athlete, Jan specializes in what she calls "realistic yoga" - that is, poses adapted to account for chronic pain, periodic injury, or other physical limitations; and a "yoga homework" routine that is no more than 3-5 poses and a few minutes a day. Whether your ideal routine incorporates chair yoga, finds you with your feet on a wall, or has you rolling out a mat, your unique yoga experience will be one you can sustain, that leaves you feeling wonderful.
