“Health is Wealth. Peace of Mind is Happiness. Yoga Shows the Way.“ Vishnu-Devananda
Jane Harper‘s Yoga teaching is intuitive and fluid – responding to the needs and energy of a group, or specifically an individual, in order to restore balance. The idea that each time you practise it is a whole practise in itself. There is a flow between dynamic movement to warm the body and stillness of holding postures steady, to build strength and balance. These are interlinked with meditative postures of rest and relaxation and working with the breath is a constant throughout. Jane Harper teaches Yoga postures from feeling the alignment within which encourages a total presence and helps to tune into the more ‘subtle energetic’ qualities of each asana (posture).
“I have been attending Jane’s classes for several years now and always get so much enjoyment out of them, coming away feeling a blend of exhilaration and relaxation. The atmosphere is fantastic: she is incredibly patient with people approaching yoga for the first time, while also stretching and challenging those who wish to push further. I am more relaxed and flexible than I have ever been and I would highly recommend Jane Harper for her totally holistic approach. More please and many thanks.” Bev, London
“An ounce of practice is worth tons of theory.” Swami Sivananda

“While having my second cataract removed the anaethetist remarked on my calmness. We talked of yoga and my being more flexible in my seventies than my thirties.” Barbara, London
“Jane introduced me to yoga four years ago…from the very first of her classes I became aware of a calming and soothing energy that she brings to her yoga practice. Having initially joined Jane‘s yoga classes in order to improve my physical flexibility and balance, I quickly noticed the additional benefits to my health…a more flexible, balanced and positive outlook, improved energy levels and a general enhanced sense of well being. I particularly enjoyed Jane‘s one to one classes and found her intuitive and attentive approach to her teaching helped my yoga improve greatly and quickly…” Graham, Gloucestershire
