Check me out on the podcast
"Chasing Happiness" with Crystal Steers!
I discuss how yoga helped me navigate the challenge of special needs parenting and how we can learn to find joy no matter what our life looks like in the moment.
I get it.
Jane Kleiman is a 200-hour Certified Kriplau Yoga Teacher, and has been a yoga practitioner and licensed massage therapist for over 20 years. She is also a Holy Fire* Reiki Master Practitioner, best-selling co-author of Awakening The Divine Feminine: 18 Stories of Healing, Inspiration, and Empowerment, and lifelong spiritual seeker. She has been leading groups of The Calm Within The Chaos for the last 7 years, and has had the honor of leading stressed-out, desperate moms back to their love of writing or art, or to start businesses, or to move into positions of leadership and support for other moms of kids with disabilities
Well versed in anatomy, physiology and multiple healing touch and meditative modalities, she brings a gentle, easy touch to principles of movement, breath practice, and group facilitation. Using creative and personal invitations to inquiry, she invites her students to cultivate non-judgmental self-awareness, known in Kripalu Yoga as Witness Consciousness. Jane encourages her students to meet themselves with an open heart right here in the present moment, and accept all that it means to be human.
What Jane says about her own journey:
“I am the parent of a 20-year-old with Autism and Intellectual Disability. My yoga practice has saved me from some dark moments of despair when I felt like inadequacy and uncertainty would swallow me whole; When I thought that taking care of my family meant giving up ever wanting anything for myself. Now, because I have made my LIFE my yoga practice, I am able to find joy, feel freedom and gratitude, and forgive myself when I can’t do it all, when I lose my temper or succumb to self-doubt. It happens daily. But it’s ok. And it’s ok for you too.”
