Since 2010, yoga practice has been an integral part of her life alongside with dance and she continues her practice at now:yoga at The Shala, among others.

    Contemporary Class Description



    Jana’s class can be described as highly physical and technical. The warm up focuses on the body as a whole and in motion, with emphasis on building strong technique as a base to support freedom in any style of dance. Her movement phrases can be fast and percussive or lyrical and fluid, but always technically challenging. Her philosophy: dancers will improve technically and grow artistically when given proper guidance and the freedom to express their unique individuality.

    Yoga Class Description



    An alignment-based Vinyasa flow, synchronizing movement and breath to nourish the body, focus the mind, increase flexibility and build strength and stamina. (All levels are welcome, a foundational knowledge of yoga suggested, but not required.)

    Students should bring their own Yoga matts to class.
