Jan Goranson began practicing yoga to help her through an illness - at least that's what she thought! In truth it seems that yoga found her, and for that, she has an abundance of gratitude, as it has empowered her to explore both 'on' and 'off' the mat.
Through the practice of Ashtanga Yoga, Jan has learned to trust the system, and is comforted by this deep and rich tradition. She traveled to Mysore for the first time in 2014 to connect more deeply with the living lineage of Ashtanga Yoga, and has returned each year since to learn and practice with Sri R Sharath Jois.
In February 2017, Jan received authorization from KPJAYI and has the blessings to teach the practice from her teacher Sri R. Sharath Jois. This is a very big honor and one she holds very close to her heart.
Jan is forever in awe of the power of yoga and is grateful for her teachers who have given her the opportunity to experience and share in this ancient practice. As she has experienced the transformative power of yoga in her own life, she is deeply committed to sharing its benefits with the whole community.
