Jan is a native of Pennsylvania but has lived in the Greenville area for 22 years. By day, Jan is a CFO for a local manufacturing plant but during evenings and weekends, she enjoys yoga and long distance running. Jan discovered Yoga after many years of being an ultra-distance athlete. She began running when she was 35 and she has since completed eight ironman distance triathlons, over fifteen marathons, six 50K ultra marathons, one 50-mile ultra-marathon and a 100-mile ultra-marathon. Yin seems to be a great offset to her Yang way of life.
Yoga started out as a way to find flexibility and rest after long training weekends. Later yoga became a regular part of her training plans. YIN Yoga has helped her find stillness and peace and helped her to develop a solid mediation practice that has kept her grounded over the past few years as she is learning to navigate into a gentler way of life. Focusing on stillness and breath has been very therapeutic and restorative to not only her body but her state of mind.
Jan has recently completed her 200 RYT certified yoga training from Soul Yoga Studio, Greenville, SC. Jan practices Power Vinyasa Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga and YIN Yoga. Her hope is to share what she has found in a balanced life, the love of the “Race” while embracing the love of “Stillness”.
Jan is married to a local Greenville guy, David. Together they have a son, William, who is attending Greenville Technical College in the Drama Program. She enjoys her furry animals (2 dogs and 1 cat) and loves time spent with her family on the lake when not training or practicing yoga.
