About Jana

I’m a woman, mother, wife, sister, friend, teacher, guide, manager…

…but first of all I’m a human being. In my life I experience joy, peace and love as much as pain, stress and fear – just like everyone else.

I’m grateful I had the chance to study, practice and teach many variations of mindful movement and meditation for over 30 years. These body and mind tools helped me not only to handle my life, work and parenting, but to genuinely enjoy it. And they make a difference in the life of my clients too.

Professionally I’ve helped hundreds of adults, teens and children to feel good in their bodies, be at peace in their minds and feel empowered to live their potential.

I also encourage people to laugh more often and to dance and swing their hips as if no one is watching!
Life can be full of JOY!

I’m passionate about supporting, guiding and empowering people to elevate their art of caring for themselves and their loved ones.
