Yoga is a journey

About me

Hello, my name is Jane Johnston

  • Facebook
  • Instagram

I trained as a nurse and a midwife, working in the NHS for over 40 years. I developed an interest for Yoga in my early 20s which has continued throughout my life. Yoga has benefitted me personally, maintaining my functional fitness and mental health. Since I have retired I had the opportunity to develop my interest further through training to be a Yoga teacher at Newcastle Yoga School. I love teaching and sharing my passion for Yoga.

I recommend Janes yoga classes at Marley Hill. The class is suitable for all levels as Jane explains techniques and adjustments clearly and gives lots of encouragement She has a calm and friendly teaching style that makes you very comfortable. Her demonstrations are clear and she corrects peoples positions with care. I felt she was a very knowledgable and confident teacher I really enjoyed the pace of the class.

Jane is a wonderful inspiring teacher. Her classes are thoughtfully designed to gently build strength and get you connected with your body in a friendly and supportive environment. Last weeks Savasanah was beautiful I nearly fell asleep. Always look forward to Janes teaching
