About me

Jan Baker, Owner of Jan Baker Yoga

Jan Baker is a qualified British Wheel of Yoga teacher living in Buckinghamshire.  Covering Haddenham & surrounding villages.  Offering various styles of yoga to mixed abilities, all welcome.  

Yoga has been a constant in my life for more than 25 years,  so I know how beneficial it is for both physical and mental wellbeing, especially at difficult times.  My real passion is Hatha Style Yoga which I teach to mixed ability students of all ages and experience.

Firstly, a bit about my background.  It had always been my ambition to train as a yoga teacher and share my passion.  However, my busy HR career in London always seemed to get in the way.  Fortunately moving out of London, in 2015, to the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside provided me the opportunity to pursue my dream.  

Secondly, my qualifications.  Studying the British Wheel of Yoga, a 500 hour Teaching Diploma in Stratford-upon-Avon I subsequently qualified as a Yoga Teacher.  I have since furthered my training by specialising in Gentle Years Yoga, for older adults with age related conditions.  Over the years I have practised different styles of yoga, including Iyengar, Astanga and Bickram and have spent time studying in India.  

Finally, Yoga is for everyone, whatever your age, fitness level or experience, it is a journey.  So it’s never too late to begin your journey and to feel the benefits.  

So why not give my weekly classes, or a 1-1 session a try and see if Yoga is for you? Offering Yoga classes in Haddenham and surrounding Buckinghamshire villages
