Jordana is an Integrative Life and Certified Health Coach, yoga therapist, certified Yoga & iRest Yoga Nidra teacher, and licensed Massage therapist, who fully believes in a whole person approach to health and wellness. While a healthy organism needs a certain amount of stress to survive and thrive, too much stress can tip the scale from wellness into a spiral of imbalances that can range from mild anxiety into chronic pain and dis-ease. Integral to her practice is teaching her clients and students tools and techniques to recalibrate deeply held stress, and shift towards the body’s natural tendency for resilience.
She has been facilitating workshops, and public speaking in addition to teaching Hatha Yoga and iRest Yoga Nidra for Holy Cross Hospital's Community Health programs, in Silver Spring, Maryland since 2001. Jordana had the pleasure and honor of working as a yoga therapist (2016/17) on a study through WRANMC in Bethesda, MD utilizing yoga for chronic low back pain. She was (again) humbled and inspired by the gentle power of these transformative, ancient practices and uses them personally, and in supporting her clients and students in restoring balance to their lives. Once steadiness is recognized, anything is possible from there.
Jordana’s approach includes exploring nutrition, movement, sleep, and relaxation. She believes in the resilience of the body, mind and spirit and our innate ability to heal, when we create the conditions for the nervous system to calm down and reset itself. She is profoundly grateful to all of her teachers, including Richard Miller, Ph.D., Robin Carnes, Rachel Green, Audrey Schoomaker, and so many others for sharing their wisdom, knowledge, passion, and enthusiasm for these teachings, and their ability to inspire others on the path to healing. Please contact her to for an individual consult or check out her virtual classes currently offered through Holy Cross Community Engagement (Silver Spring, MD), and experience for yourself the extraordinary yet subtle healing power of these profound teachings.
