Jacklyn Tanarov

Jane is the BEST yoga instructor/teacher. I love going to her classes so much that I've attended one of her retreats and visited another two times for her yoga classes (I'm from NY). She's attentive, coaching, and patient. She adjusts you when needed which helps you improve on your yoga stances every time you go to her.


Francesca Barone

BEST yoga teacher in Puerto. Jane is incredibly knowledgeable, gifted, and passionate. She gives the perfect amount of breathing techniques, meditative breaks, and also really pushes you during the asanas but without making it seem “pushy”. You can just feel how educated she is about the body in all of her flows, adjustments and queues. Honestly one of the best teachers I’ve practiced with in a long time and I’ve been doing yoga for 10+ years. Highly recommend!
