Quickly identifying that city office life was not for her, Alice moved to Valencia where she now offers regular group and private Yin sessions.

Jana discovered yoga in 2013 while living in China. She soon started to feel that there was something extra ordinary in it and that it is no way just a physical exercise.


As she dived deeper into regular practice over the years she decided to deepen her knowledge in a teacher training in India where she discovered how beautiful it is to get in touch with our bodies, listen to their wisdom, quiet the mind, find the vibrant resonance between our inner and outer worlds and recognize the divine within.


Soon after she fell in love with the practice of acroyoga which combines yoga, acrobatics and therapeutic arts. She currently offers acroyoga workshops with her life partner and a passionate yoga/acroyoga practitioner Jorge. She also teaches Hatha and Ashtanga yoga in Valencia.


Jana has completed 200 hours of Hatha Yoga training, 100 hours of Ashtanga Yoga training with Yoga Alliance Certifications, Adapted Yoga training for people with disabilities with Arunai Method and AcroYoga teacher training by AcroYoga International.
