Jan Norman Yoga in Cuba – November 5th to 12th, 2016

Jan Norman Yoga is excited to offer you the third annual 7-night Health and Wellness Yoga Retreat in Cuba with Eduardo Pimentel, founder of the Cuban Yoga Association.

A week to rejuvenate the mind and the body in the beautiful Cuban sun and lifestyle! The Cuba 2014 retreat was a complete success! It was a transformational week bringing home love, acceptance, patience and calm. Thank you to everyone who joined me and thank you Cuba!

The retreat was a FIVE STAR SPA FOR THE SOUL!! I signed up for this trip unaware of what to expect and although the itinerary sounded amazing, I had no idea that the journey would have such a profound effect on me! Not only was the yoga good for my soul and my body, to experience the country, the people, the food and the culture cannot be compared to anything I’ve seen before.
You took 20 people from all walks of life and cleansed them from the inside out.
Bravo Jan Norman….Bravo!

About your teacher

I am an Experienced (over 1000 hours of teaching experience) Yoga Alliance registered teacher with certifications in Hatha Yoga and Core Strength Vinyasa. I bring to the mat my 38 years of coaching skills and the biomechanical expertise I have acquired as a Chartered Professional Figure Skating Coach; coaching National and International level athletes. I teach hot and cool yoga and present workshops on the fundamental asanas.I have experienced the Mhai Yoga retreat as a student 4 years ago and as an instructor with 18 students in 2014. Both times were transformational! I have lived through grief and dysfunction and have learned through yoga to have a balanced life. I have battled an eating disorder and the accompanying self-esteem issues for over 30 years. On the path to my healing yoga has been instrumental in bringing together all of my knowledge and expertise into one place-on the mat. My realization that Yoga is a multifaceted path out of suffering has compelled me to share this amazing path.

I am passionate about teaching something that is at a high level of fitness and also gives clarity. Clarity is another way of saying truth. Yoga rejuvenates rather than depletes, it benefits all aspects of you. In my 30 years of self help I have finally found the right combination in one practice!!! I am thrilled about this and relay it in my teaching. I have an agenda to free people from the thought of exercise as punishment and help them see that yoga as a form of exercise is an action of self love.
