Jan Baxter has been practicing yoga for over 20 years and was certified as an Iyengar Yoga Teacher in 1995.
Jan attended her first yoga classes in her late teens but it wasn't until she discovered BKS Iyengar and his book Light on Yoga that the practice of yoga became a way of life. The passion has grown stronger throughout the years.
Jan was the first person to introduce Iyengar Yoga in the Sutherland Shire and owned and operated Southside Yoga and Fitness for 10 years.
Having spent six years living and teaching on the South Coast of New South Wales Jan has now relocated to Sydney.
It is Jan's philosophy that anyone can practice yoga regardless of age or ability and through the adaption of the asanas(postures) according to a persons' needs.
Jan has instructed elite level athletes wanting to improve their performance and reduce injuries (including dancers, footballers, cricketers, gymnasts and swimmers) as well as conducting classes for children and pregnant women.
Jan has visited the Iyengar Yoga Institute in Pune, India to study with the Iyengar family and further the depth of her yoga experience. In spite of a busy professional routine Jan maintains a strong personal yoga practice and participates in professional development and further study each year.
When not teaching or practising yoga she enjoys an outdoor life, swimming, bushwalking and spending time with her husband, family and beautiful grandchildren.
Most of all Jan is passionate about yoga and is driven to share that passion with her students.
