Yoga for Healthy Backs

This class is taught by:

Jane Stelboum

Describe yourself in three words: Optimistic, determined, direct.

Why do you teach Yoga? It’s made such a difference in my own life. I really wanted to share.

Something surprising about you: Tough marketing professional by day. Confident, compassionate yoga instructor by night.


What inspires you? People’s ability to see the best in any situation, to overcome challenges and adversity and to experience life to its fullest.

What's the scariest thing on your bucket list? Hmmm, dying to do flying trapeze but not sure I have the nerve.
