Yoga on the Lawn

The JCNA is happy to partner with Joslyn Castle again this year in providing outdoor Yoga at the Castle sessions.  Jaclyn Janssen will be leading the session every Thursday evening in June from 5 to 6 p.m. There are five Thursdays in June this year, so even if one or two are canceled for heat or storms, there still will be more opportunities to enjoy yoga. Be sure to bring your own mat for the sessions. 

About Jaclyn Janssen

Jaclyn is RYT 500 certified and has been guiding yoga classes since 2017.  Her personal philosophy is that yoga brings people together and reminds us of our collective humanness. Outside of teaching, Jaclyn is an ER nurse and has found that her yoga practice grounds her and has taught her to breathe first before all of life's turbulence. 

"During the hour yoga practice at the Joslyn Castle you will be connected with nature as we practice out on the grass and under the trees and sky.  The yoga class will meet you wherever you are on your yoga journey, even if you are just finding this beautiful practice," Jaclyn said.
