As Jane says, ‘there is so much that I have learned and now so much to be shared’.
Jane’s personal experience with Baptiste yoga has been life changing and life anchoring. ‘I had no idea when I walked into my first Baptiste class that it would lead me on this path, and to this place, of deep passion for the practice, utmost respect and gratitude for my teacher, and deep love for the Baptiste community of certified teachers all over the world.

In Baptiste Yoga we heat the room to approximately 90 degrees using the heat as a tool to get deeper into the body. Heat softens the tissues and muscles and makes the body more malleable.
