A skilled yoga practitioner, Jana did her teacher training in Tokyo, Japan. Her training is rooted from a style of yoga that looks at individual anatomy and structure and based on those observations specific postures and breath patterns are prescribed: adhering to the needs and demands of the individual.
Jana’s competitive and athletic background influenced her teaching methods and attracted a very specific type of cliental. Although she continues to teach in a studio setting with private clients from all backgrounds, she has found her niche market in the realm of high performance and elite athletes.
Webb began at the National Sports Development Centre where she taught varsity basketball, volleyball and hockey teams. Since then she has worked with the Calgary Stampeders of the CFL in their off-season and then into their regular season. She has also worked with the Toronto Argonauts, Players from Edmonton Oilers, Calgary Flames, Pheonix Coyotes, Ottawa Senators, Montreal Canadians, Florida Panthers, Colorado Avalanche, Team Canada Rugby, and Team Canada Volleyball.
Part of her program has evolved into the creation of sport specific yoga sessions such as “Yoga for Golfers”, “Yoga for Runners”, and “Yoga for Triathletes”, concentrating on pacific movements and postures that benefit these sports. Jana is an ambassator for LuLu Lemon Canada and a representative of the Darren Kwik, an organization that raises funds for Arthritis and autoimmune research.
