I opened a space of wellness in January 2002 with a life-long dream of serving others and leading them to a more holistic way of living, Jane's House has been thriving since. Led by Grace, I found my teachers, Matthew and Holly Krepps, owners of Circle Yoga Shala located in Jasper, Arkansas, since then we have worked together in a loving relationship to support one another and the students that have crossed our paths.
I have accumulated thousands of hours of studies, primarily through the teaching lineage which stems from Krishnamacharya and the strong influence of Godfrey Devereux, through Matthew. My teaching is also reflective of the years of study in fine arts. For me, teaching is an open canvas to create innumerable experiences designed specifically for my students. I love to dance between effort and ease, so my teachings usually move between intensity and lightheartedness in a natural way. Prior to my formal training in Yoga, I began studying Ayurveda through the American Institute of Vedic Studies. This set me on course to move beyond public class teaching and into a natural pursuit to work individually and more therapeutically with students. Throughout the past 15 years I have worked with professional and college level teams to address the specific needs of the athletes. I completed the Advanced Studies Program with CYS and in 2017 I received certification with the International Association of Yoga Therapists, IAYT.
My passions for teaching led naturally to a passion for training teachers and I have been doing so since 2005, both in St. Charles, Missouri and St. Thomas, VI. Through numerous opportunities to travel and teach, I met my spiritual teacher, Dandapani who has provided a deeper understanding from the tradition, the importance of Spiritual Well-Being. I will always be a student, it is from this perspective that I serve the community. When I am not directing my studio and teaching, I love my time with family, pets and nature. I am on such an amazing journey and hold deep gratitude for all of the teachers who have come before me and the support and encouragement I receive from my loving husband!
