CEO & Founder, The Joga Company
After five minutes with Jana Webb it’s easy to see why the sports world loves her. Not only does the Canadian-born athlete exude her passion for her business but she also gets results. A lifelong athlete and skilled yoga practitioner, Jana developed JOGA; an athletic based style of yoga that speaks to the athletic mind and athletic body. Incorporating a unique blend of postures and breathing techniques, JOGA helps find balance in strength and flexibility and improves breath control and recovery. Jana has always been the type to seize the opportunity in front of her. She’s travelled extensively and lived around the world including Australia and Mexico before returning to Canada. Now a mother of a young son, Jana is even more dedicated to growing her movement.
After stumbling upon yoga while nursing her own injury, Jana trained in Tokyo to become an Ishta certified yoga instructor. Wanting to bridge the gap between fitness and yoga, she developed a number of sport-specific programs including Yoga for Golfers and Yoga for Runners before developing the JOGA program. Now aiming to help other health professionals achieve their goals, Jana has developed a certification program that offers yoga instructors, physiotherapists, athletic therapists and strength coaches to become Joga certified. The rehabilitation and pre-rehabilitation components of the program have spearheaded her most recent partnership with Physiomed Health.
Jana’s competitive and athletic background influenced her teaching methods and attracted a very specific type of clientele. Although she continues to teach in a studio setting with private clients from all backgrounds, she has found her niche market in the realm of high performance and elite athletes. Olympic Athletes and Professional Athletes all over North America in the NHL, NFL, MLB, NBA and CFL are practicing Joga. Jana also works with some of the best Strength Coach’s in North America to implement Joga into their athlete’s training regimen. .
