Entrepreneur | Founder and Creator, JOGA
A lifelong athlete, Jana Webb is on a mission to share her inimitable perspective of fitness and health with the world. She is the founder and CEO of Joga, a unique blend of yoga and sport that has revolutionized how people, including elite athletes, strengthen their mind and bodies. Joga was fuelled by Jana’s personal journey of rehabilitation after a car crash left her severely injured. In her inspirational talks, she shows people how to leverage adversity, resiliency, and vulnerability to empower themselves, and enhance their performance both at home and work.
Before this chapter of her life, Jana was a successful television host and advertising executive, but after a severe car accident required her to undergo serious rehabilitation — a yogi was born. Having always been somewhat of a jock, Jana morphed her Ishta Yoga training from Japan to compliment her competitive athletic nature and launched Joga in 2010.
Since then, Jana has worked with elite athletes from across North America — including Olympians and players from the NHL, NFL, MLB, NBA, and CFL — helping them to enhance their performance and excel at their sport. Joga has grown to having more than 350 Joga coaches around the globe, and Jana is currently building her first Joga House in Toronto with more locations to come.
Having found her niche market in the realm of high performance and athletes, Jana has captured the attention of high-profile media outlets including The Toronto Star, The Globe and Mail, Inside Fitness, CBC, CityLine, and Breakfast Television, and has spoken for TedTalks, Optimyz, CanFit Pro, and Veg Expo.
