Jane Siarny, MFA, Master InterPlay® Leader, Certified Yoga Teacher CYT-200 is dedicated to uplifting the human spirit through creativity, community building and body-wise practices. Her training and inspiration draws from classical ballet & modern dance, improvisation, singing, poetry, yoga and InterPlay.

In March 2017, she began her new job as the InterPlay Life Practice Program Coordinator. She led her first Life Practice group in 1999 and has led numerous groups since. She enjoys the transformational magic of InterPlay whether folks dip their toe in with classes and workshops or dive deeply into Untensive Retreats or The Life Practice Program or Leadership Training Program.
Jane’s experience with InterPlay began when she was transitioning out of dance performance and looking for a more holistic approach to movement education and her own experience. She was about to enroll in a Masters of Dance & Movement Therapy when she discovered InterPlay’s therapeutic, community building approach to celebrating the wisdom of the body. Jane believes in the power of InterPlay’s accessible and incremental approach to health and wholeness through our birthrights: movement, voice, story, stillness and connection. Her life has been enriched for over 2 decades by the healing, ease-filled, and life-changing system of InterPlay. From 1994-2004 she was co-director of the InterPlay based OUTABOUNDS Performance Company, performing and teaching throughout the U.S. Jane has also danced with professional ballet and modern companies; created/ directed touring educational programs, multi-cultural performance programs & dance schools.
Her research for her yoga teacher certification at Prairie Yoga is entitled Creativity, Play & the Search for the Divine Dance in YOGA. She hopes to inspire others with yoga and InterPlay programs that create grace, ease and renewal for body & soul.
