Jan Wilding
Jan is an experienced British Wheel of Yoga teacher, a Foundation Course tutor and Holistic Massage therapist with over 25 years experience both in the UK and abroad. Jan trained in massage with I.T.E.C. (International Therapy Examining Council) and yoga with the British Wheel of Yoga, but has practiced & studied with many different traditions, disciplines and holistic therapies in the field of Yoga and Personal Development.
The most influential and life changing teaching has come through Ram Dass, an ex-professor of psychology at Harvard. Other influences are through The Bihar School of Yoga and the teachings of Swami Satyananda, Swami Gitananda, the Kripalu Yoga Centre in Massachusetts, John Stirk & Peter Blackaby who are both Yoga teachers & osteopaths and teach the style of Yoga as taught by Vanda Scaravelli and also various schools of Buddhist meditation, especially Thich Nhat Hanh and the Community of Interbeing.
For four years (whilst journeying through the menopause) Jan received individual tuition from Paul Harvey who for 23 years was taught directly by TKV Desikachar. Jan is also a student of Wu style Tai Chi and Chi Kung. As a result of a back injury as a teenager and since the menopause, Jan's yoga has become a lifestyle that reflects the importance of releasing deep seated tensions, developing core strength stability and good breathing through a safe, relaxed approach to freeing the body and mind.
Because no two bodies are the same and no two people will 'feel' a posture in the same way, Jan teaches in small classes or 1-1, so that she can give attention to the needs of each individual. Over the years Jan has taught both Yoga and massage for the Adult Education Department, worked in sports and health centres, as well as with staff in hospitals. She also has experience in mainstream Education, working with whole school policy on pupil behavior and general stress management in the pre-school, primary and secondary sectors. During this time she wrote a book for Gloucestershire Education Authority entitled "Relaxation within the Classroom".
Jan now teaches general yoga classes, specialist pregnancy and postnatal yoga, relaxation classes, individual tuition, as well as Further Studies Foundation Courses and workshops in and around Cirencester, Gloucestershire. With her partner Andrew under the title of Entr’acte partnership Jan runs courses and is co-owner of Le Côtil in Normandy, France, where she takes yoga students for retreats, short breaks, holidays and 'Lifesound' breaks.
