Jan is the owner and main instructor at the Fish Tree Yoga Retreat Center in Pensacola, Florida. The amazing facility and grounds have been architecturally designed and built in the Japanese Tea House Style, utilizing bamboo as the central focus throughout the interior of the 1,100-square-foot studio. Fish Tree Yoga offers Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga classes, hot yoga, retreats and workshops.
While researching yoga for football players, Jan was drawn to the great yoga master Baron Baptiste, who was on the coaching staff of the Philadelphia Eagles for years.
After reading more about the Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga developed by Baron, Jan decided to attend the teacher trainings offered by Baptiste Power Yoga Institute. Level One Training was completed in February 2008 in Hawaii, and Level Twp was completed in June 2008 in Helena, Montana. Jan completed all the requirements for certification, and in January 2009 she was certified as a Baptiste Power Vinyasa Teacher.
Jan is the mother of five and has five grandchildren. She lives with her husband and a 20-pound cat named Earl. Besides her passion for yoga, she also plays the piano and paints. Her artwork is just as colorful and unique as her personality.
