Janna grew up in Florida but didn’t get into surfing till her early 30’s. Knowing surfer beach life was in her future, she moved in Maui in 2007 and was luckily to get exposed to SUP early on.

“Pro SUP rider Ann Marie Reichman was great to teach me and I was hooked. I instantly wanted to spend more time on the boards and thought of getting people out in Toronto, on the lakes”.

She finished her 200hr yoga teacher training in 2008 and started her company SUPGirlz in Toronto the same year. She has been a vegetarian for 20+ years and has run SUPsurfing/ vegan retreats in Ecuador since 2009. Competing sometimes in SUPsurfing and SUP racing, she leads workshops and classes most the year teaching teachers and students all elements of SUP and surfing.

She is master certified through PIF and WPA and additionally holds certifications from ISA and YA. More info on retreats at Love Life Adventures and Adicto Surf. Janna is happy to be part of the Rogue SUP team too!

Gentle Wave Move at a gentle pace as you balance the mind & body through meditation, breathing techniques, and asanas (physical postures) in this Hatha style class.
