Jane Sheridan Yoga
Strength Stability Flexibility
I have been practicing yoga since 2001 and qualified as a teacher in October 2013. I am accredited through both the Yoga Alliance (RYS-200) and the British Wheel of Yoga, studying under Elena Voyce of Teach Yoga Limited.
I have been an avid sports enthusiast for as long as I can remember. With a passion for running, I have completed the London Marathon six times as well as countless 5k, 10k and half marathons. I have experienced, first-hand, the benefits yoga can bring to performance with improvements in strength, pace and endurance. The most noticeable difference has been the end to a string of running injuries since incorporating a regular yoga practice into my training regime.
Yoga Sports Coach™
I am certified as a Yoga Sports Coach™ with The Institute of Yoga Sports Science® (YSS) https://www.yogasportscience.com/.
YSS actively researches the efficacy of how yoga works in sport, offering a certification course to qualified professionals where they learn the methodology and evidence-based sports-specific techniques that have been helping athletes improve their performance since its formation in 2009.
The YSS method works with athletes to target specific individual or team objectives, whether they be aimed at preventing or assisting recovery from injury or enhancing specific performance goals.
I taught in London for 8 years before relocating to the North Kent coast in late 2021. The lockdown restrictions as a result of COVID-19 meant that I needed to learn to teach online. This had its challenges but it allowed me to stay connected with my students throughout. I am still teaching online and with many of my students travelling for their work the classes are regularly attended from across the world.
Face-to-face classes are held at SNAP 24 in Herne Bay, Monday at 9:15am, Tuesday 7:15pm and Thursday 10:00am.
Each of my sessions is planned with a logic to prepare and open the body gradually towards a peak posture or sequence, training my students to use their breath to lead their movement.
I also teach one-to-one sessions (within a reasonable distance of Herne Bay) tailored specifically to the individual's needs. This can be a regular yoga practice or as part of a specific programme for those with medical conditions or anyone recovering from illness or injury.
My students range from complete beginner to athletes competing in various sporting disciplines; most commonly runners, climbers and cyclists, but anything goes. I take care to offer something for all levels. I encourage students to challenge themselves, whether that means developing a more physical practice or challenging the more competitive students to be gentler with themselves.
Jane has a great sense of fun and brings a playful element to her teaching.
Jane also co-hosts a yoga retreat in Spain every June (travel restrictions permitting) for those students wanting to explore the wider aspects of yoga.
