Jane Aldiss started practicing hatha yoga in 1991, and has studied with many internationally recognised teachers in India, Greece, Italy, France, Canada and England. She started teaching yoga in 1999. Jane is a Senior Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance UK. She holds Continuing Personal Development (CPD) Courses for Yoga Teachers as well for as those looking for a deeper meaning to life and has been working with complementary therapies since 1984.

In January 2016 Jane attended the 3 month Yoga Development Course followed by the Yasodhara Yoga Hatha Teacher Certification Course at Yasodhara Ashram, British Columbia, Canada and was able to stay on at the Ashram to gain experience of Ashram life. She is now happy to bring her experience of Yasodhara Yoga to Norfolk.


Jane is offering Yasodhara Yoga classes as well as one day, one night and weekend retreats in Oulton, near Alysham in the north Norfolk countryside for yoga students, and teachers.

Jane’s classes will appeal particularly to those who suspect that there is much more to Yoga than is generally taught, and are interested in connecting deeply with “the creative force of the universe unfolding”. No physical aptitude necessary to benefit from these classes, which is tailored to the needs of the individual attendees.

In Oulton, you may experience yoga in the deep peace of the countryside, near Aylsham in North Norfolk, with the opportunity to enjoy the garden, sit by the stream or by the wood stove in winter, and use of the yoga studio for personal practice and relaxation.
