Jana was introduced to AntiGravity® yoga in Laura Colón’s class and immediately loved being in the hammock. She was intrigued with the way it complimented her other practices and teachings. As an AntiGravity® certified teacher at ANYA, Jana looks forward to sharing the playful and restorative benefits offered through the practice.
