Jana Cole

Jana walked into her first yoga class with a friend in 2003 and was quickly drawn into a regular yoga practice. She initially appreciated yoga for its physical benefits, and as time passed she became more intrigued by the connection between mind, body, and spirit that yoga helps create. The increased sense of inner peace and mental clarity that her practice fostered helped Jana respond to the stresses of her career, and later, raising young children. Jana has a background in dance, and although she has studied many forms of yoga, she identifies strongly with the Iyengar-inspired practice, with its emphasis on precision and focus on alignment. She loves teaching and witnessing students create more ease in their own bodies.

Jana earned her 200 hour RYT studying with Kate Coughlin at Downtown Yoga in 2013, and is currently pursuing her 500 hour RYT. She loves to learn and continues her studies through workshops with Carrie Owerko, H.S. Arun, Jason Crandell, and others. When she's not on her mat, Jana enjoys traveling, cooking, reading, gardening, hiking, and chasing her two kids.



Jana Cole instructs the following:
  • Sunrise Yoga (all levels)

Inversions are an integral part of this practice. Get up and get the day going. This 6:00 a.m. class is a perfect way to stretch and wake up.
