Jana Appleyard has taught yoga full time since 1999 and is the founder of Yoga in the City. Her teaching is influenced by many years of study of Shadow Yoga. Jana’s current study in the internal arts and exploration of all forms of movement continue to inform the development of her own unique style.

Jana works with all levels from beginners to advanced and now lives full time on the island of Hvar in Croatia where she co-founded Hvareno.

She is regularly invited to teach across Europe and frequently returns to London to run yoga intensives. Jana is accredited as a senior teacher by Yoga Alliance UK.


Rosa practised yoga with Jana for seven years before becoming her teaching apprentice and has now taught since 2010. She has a background in Classical Indonesian dance, which she learnt from the age of eight and also studies taichi and broadsword.


Kevin Enright has been deeply inspired by the shadow yoga school primarily via Jana Appleyard, but also studies with Shandor and Emma Balnaves.
He has spent many years with Iyengar teachers, and follows a meditation path inspired by Buddhism and the Himalayan Yoga tradition, which all inform his teaching.
