"My true teachers are my students.
They are the ones showing up and doing the work. They are the ones responsible for where I am on my yoga teaching journey today.
I am grateful for every student, for every class."
Jane has been practicing Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga since 2002, teaching since 2004, and training teachers in the Baptiste method since 2012. Jane recently completed a year long leadership program, Fit To Lead, with Baron Baptiste graduating April 2019.
While teaching the physical practice designed by Baron Baptiste over 20 years ago, Jane incorporates the complimenting methodology; the what Baptiste yoga is, the why we do Baptiste yoga, the how we practice this yoga, the pillars of the practice, and so much more. As Jane says, ‘there is so much that I have learned and now so much to be shared’.
Jane’s personal experience with Baptiste yoga has been life changing and life anchoring. ‘I had no idea when I walked into my first Baptiste class that it would lead me on this path, and to this place of: deep passion for the practice, utmost respect and gratitude for my teacher Baron, and deep love for the Baptiste community of certified teachers all over the world.
