A former competitive athlete, Jana created Joga (an athletic based style of yoga that incorporates a unique blend of postures and breathing techniques). Although she continues to teach in a studio setting with private clients from all backgrounds, she also works with some of the best Strength Coaches in North America incorporating Joga into their athlete’s training regimen. This includes NHL, NFL, MLB, NBA, and CFL teams as well as many Olympic athletes.
Jana trained in Tokyo to become an Ishta certified yoga instructor. Now aiming to help other health professionals achieve their goals, Jana has developed a certification program that allows yoga instructors, physiotherapists, athletic therapists, and strength coaches to become Joga certified. The rehabilitation and pre-rehabilitation components of the program have spearheaded a recent partnership with Physiomed Health and there are now over 200 Joga certified instructors worldwide. She can be seen regularly on CBC’s Steven and Chris show as their Fitness Expert and has also appeared on CTV, CityTV, Breakfast Television, Rogers Television, iTunes and GaiamTV.
