Jane Cargill is a Boston native. Throughout high school and college, she ran track and played soccer. Through soccer she had the opportunity to travel within the states and overseas which lead to her fascination in different cultures and cultural expressions. As a result, she studied Cultural Anthropology at State University at Stony Brook which fed her captivation in people and culture. She hopes to use what she has learned experientially through travel and her willingness to dive into new environments as a way of making a difference in her life and the lives around her.
Jane’s first experience with yoga was in the summer of 2001. After many years of rigorous physical activity, her body began to speak loudly in the form of bursitis in both hips. She chose to seek an alternative form of exercise; something challenging, yet low impact which would satisfy her craving for movement. She fell in love with yoga that very first day on her mat! What she didn’t anticipate was the new-found freedom through expression and acceptance that is inherent in the yogic process. She continues to nurture that relationship with herself through daily practice, and sharing it with others by teaching.
Her intent is to teach freedom through the joy of movement and connection to Source. She feels compelled and honored to lead and share the practice that has liberated her and brought her “home”. She hopes to inspire students to embrace their uniqueness, express their gifts, expand their mind, and find their JOY.
Jane currently a full-time instructor and actively volunteers for YogaHope, a non-profit yoga organization dedicated to bringing yoga to under-served women in the Boston.
