WHY I CHOSE JOGA
Supporting athletes in my various roles as a sports chiropractor, athletic trainer and JOGA Coach has been my career for over 20 years.
The JOGA system, designed with the understanding of how athletes move as they compete and train, has proven to be an invaluable resource with a variety of applications. Whether the goal is to build strength and joint stability in foundation postures to gain mobility or as part of a scheduled active recovery day, the varying intensities and low impact nature of this training is well suited for both amateur and professional athletes.
Primarily working with high-performance athletes in contact sports like hockey and lacrosse, has proven to me how essential preparation is to success. As needed, I coordinate and structure JOGA sessions with Strength & Conditioning Coaches, Medical & Training staff and Technical Skills Coaches to support both in-season and off-season fitness goals for the athlete or team. The ability to manage workloads, modify programming for injury and support an active recovery plan are just a few of the benefits that motivated me to become a JOGA Coach.

“My name is Tyler Russell. I play hockey for the Los Angeles Jr Kings. I have been practicing JOGA for over 2 years. JOGA has helped me get stronger, especially with the strength in my legs. I really enjoy doing all of the JOGA exercises along with the salutation and the stretches. I consider JOGA a secret weapon because my body is in pain during the workout but I know that the pain is what will make me stronger. My JOGA coach, Carlie Chiovetti, is awesome. She is great at teaching all of the exercises and really cares that we are making improvements every week to help me be a stronger athlete.”
“What benefited me the most is the way we worked on my posture. In addition to that, my hips and hamstrings were always tight in the past. Now they, never get tight and I feel very fluid.”
“To be successful on the field, you have to be both physically and mentally prepared! I believe JOGA is the perfect blend of recovery, performance, and conditioning. I love JOGA because it not only makes my body feel better, but it allows my mind to let go.”
“I was looking for something new and that made sense with how my players move. This is when I was introduced to JOGA, a movement based program to help my players recover and maintain strength and mobility without sacrificing time. I felt it was an effective way of training”
“When trying to establish a foundation of strength JOGA segments 1 and 2 are very good for teaching the athlete balance and body control. This helps to increase strength and explosive power down the line.”
“JOGA is different than a traditional yoga class as it takes into consideration how athletes move, train and digest information. It’s program based and encompasses all of the physical properties needed to support elite performance.”
“When I started with Jana this past summer I noticed an immediate improvement in the way I felt physically. She paid close attention to the way my body was built and my strengths and weaknesses, allowing me to work on and improve strength and mobility that would immediately help me as an athlete. The work was very specific and tailored to my position. I’m very confident that it helped me on the ice when the season started. I’m looking forward to working with her again in the future.”
“Yoga can be an integral part of the off-season training of any athlete. It is important, however, to find an instructor who understands the demands of your sport and the strength and conditioning program. Jana and the JOGA staff have a done a great job of tailoring a program to meet the needs of my athletes and are willing and able to customize their sessions based on my feedback.”
