To celebrate International Women’s Day, the Alberni Valley News will be running features on a number of women in business in Port Alberni. Our first feature is Jan Norman, the owner of Ahimsa Yoga.
Ahimsa means non-violence (toward oneself).
Jan Norman of Ahimsa Yoga is a yoga enthusiast, practitioner, and instructor. Ahimsa Yoga is the evolution of Jan Norman Yoga to include all aspects of Jan’s teaching including wellness, retreats, classes and the future community of yoga instructors.
Ahimsa Yoga offers weekly yoga classes, private instruction, and health and wellness retreats that include yoga, healthy meals and excursions to explore a new destination. Ahimsa School of Yoga can certify you to be an Internationally Certified Yoga Teacher – the only one in Port Alberni. Jan’s intent is to make Yoga accessible to as many people in Port Alberni by creating more classes, training more teachers and spreading the word about the benefits of Yoga for all bodies, all ages and all levels.
Jan will be offering two yoga retreats this year: one to Cuba, and the other to Tuscany, Italy. There is room for you!
Registration is now open for the Yoga teacher training in September. It is for all yogis who want to learn the poses and the philosophy of Yoga and go on a journey of self-discovery and empowerment. The schedule allows for work and family life.
