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 until the end of May to gain experience of Ashram life.

Jane returned to the Ashram in August 2017 to attend the celebrations for the new Temple and for further training. She is now excited to be offering Yasodhara  Hatha, Kundalini and Dream Yoga workshops, retreats and courses to yoga students and teachers and her community in the north Norfolk countryside at Oulton near Aylsham Norfolk, and beyond.

Jane’s classes will appeal particularly to those who suspect that there is much more to Yoga than is generally taught.

No physical aptitude necessary to benefit from these classes, which is tailored to the needs of the individual attendees.

Jane also offers retreats at Harnsers End. You have the opportunity to experience yoga in the deep peace of the countryside, 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.

The Retreat offers Self Catering Accommodation and is available for personal retreat, one to one retreats, and holidays.
