Jana used her formal education in business to manage various fitness facilities in California and Hawaii and was first introduced to Pilates in 2006. Initially she found Pilates to be difficult but once she understood the concepts and the proper form, she grew to love it… with her favorite exercise being the Pilates Pushup.
Jana’s teaching style is a direct result of her first experiences with Pilates and she wants her students to have fun and feel successful. She teaches her students that Pilates is about form and control; which is developed over time and with practice.
Jana received her comprehensive Pilates certification through Club Pilates and aspires to be a Master Trainer. She has numerous additional fitness certifications through AEA, AFAA, NASM, ISSA, Red Cross, Arthritis Foundation, MOSSA, LES MILLS, TRX, ZUMBA and RIPPED.
Outside of the studio Jana loves to hike, travel and spend time with her family (including 8 sisters and 1 brother!) and she lives by the mantra “Eat Cake for Breakfast”. Lemon pound cake to be specific.
