“Jane’s teaching is accessible and absolutely vital to the times in which we are living. Her style is rooted in ancient wisdom and also embodies our relationship to what is happening NOW. Jane’s classes are unique and are recommended for anyone who cares to know themselves and deepen their relationship to the body.”
– Lauren Brown, San Francisco
About Jane

In the realm of Hatha Yoga, I am thankful to have studied in-depth over decades with master teachers Patricia Walden, Barbara Benaugh, Rodney Yee, Angela Farmer, Tony Briggs & Sofia Diaz. I consider myself fortunate to have walked through my twenties and early thirties surrounded by such hard-working lineage-holders. More recently, my best learning has been won by way of marriage, two natural childbirths, and the day-to-day devotion of rearing little ones.

I have an  M.A. in Counseling Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute (home of Joseph Campbell’s personal library) and a B.A. in English Literature & Psychology from Georgetown University. I have also completed a thesis titled ‘The Yoga of Embodiment’ which is available for download on this site. I currently teach classes & private sessions through Hale Mind & Body in Nashville, TN.

 

“Devoted to the life-affirming process of yoga, Jane’s teaching is a rich integration of the classical teachings and disciplines of Hatha Yoga with a more creative exploration of one’s relationship to Self. Jane’s extensive background in body-oriented therapy and classical Hatha Yoga merge to offer a holistic approach to practice that facilitates health and wholeness on all levels of being.”
