Life is either a daring adventure
or nothing at all.

Meet Jane Bahneman

Be brave and explore your passion. Be wise and define your purpose. Then make this your life’s reality.

 My purpose is to pull the best out of you. I’ll challenge you to step into your power as a female entrepreneur. I’ll help you intelligently grow your business.

My brick and mortar business survived COVID, and expanded its offerings. That’s huge.

We each have natural gifts. I’ll support your personal development, asking you to dig deeper to reach your true potential. I will teach you how to create business systems, and how to implement strategies that support your goals. And we’ll create ultimate alignment by defining what success really means in your life, clarifying your “Why?” so your work is fueled by this greater purpose every day.

Why work with me?

As the Founder of Nectar Yoga Studios, I’ve built my business from the ground up, and have a proven track record that my formula works. Business owners must expand in every area of their existence. The path requires overcoming obstacles, demonstrating patience, learning on-the-daily, executing with consistency, and stretching beyond perceived limits.

Plus, it’s important to find a healthy mix of work and play. Your business shouldn’t own you, rather you should own your business. Aligning professional goals + personal life desires = true center. 

Total wellness and financial freedom are my highest priorities. I run, lift weights, hike and camp, ski, bike, raise my son, and cherish my dear friends and family. I’ll coach you to you find your ideal life balance. And you’ll begin immediately building a profitable business enterprise that actually supports your own unique priorities, too.

I’ve sharpened my skill set over two decades, and now I’m using them to serve you.

I’m ready for you.
