Jayne & Fitness
Jayne champions the working instructor providing qualifications and developing programs that allow both emotional and financial rewards. Something of an entrepreneur in the fitness industry she has created a business out of a passion. Starting as a group exercise instructor and personal trainer, Jayne has never been employed, never taught third party programs and always searched for a “better way.” Her leadership demonstrates that you can be both an instructor and a business person and her longevity in the industry provides a proven track record for success.
Jayne & iGuru
Co owner of iGuru Athleisurewear Ltd, Jayne has realized a long term ambition of designing and producing a fitness clothing brand, currently on it’s first “Gym to Gin” collection, the monochrome range excels in both quality and performance.
Jayne says : “I have learned pretty much everything I know to be true from standing in front of a class and teaching what my head and my heart have to share. No school of business can teach you more than human interaction and a desire to change peoples lives. I have never wanted to sell to the masses and am happiest when just one person “gets it.”
Jayne on combining Yoga & fitness: “still a relatively new approach the amalgamation of science with received wisdom is a playground for anyone with imagination. Applying human function to a physical Yoga practice is fascinating, demonstrating every strength and weakness. Anyone competent in both methods will prove to be the future of modern Yoga.”
Jayne on third party programs: “our industries have become standardised due to the formulaic approach of third party teaching. The large brands are a constant source of inspiration and community for instructors but they will never allow the single person to be financially, emotionally or professionally rewarded in their own right”
Jayne on the national occupational standards for Yoga : “I watch with interest the rage and venom emanating from Yoga teachers entrenched in “the old way”. It is fear that resists change and having experienced it years ago in the fitness industry I have complete empathy. This will force the “actualisation” that Yoga so often simply acknowledges. What is ultimately important is the need for the general public to understand what a physical yoga class has to offer them. The NOC’s will only improve the relationship between teacher and student by forcing a language that is transparent and mutually coherent.”
