Jael Polnac
Jael (1)

One of Jael’s strengths as a yoga teacher is her ability to explain complicated concepts in a thorough and understandable way. She approaches each class with awareness and sensitivity to the physical, energetic, and mental shifts that a thoughtfully crafted yoga sequence can bring to her students, and she uses her steady, centering energy to support them through any challenges in the practice. Jael has worked with beginners, athletes, experienced yogis, and individuals with significant health challenges and is open and responsive to the needs of her students.

Jael received her original certification from Yoga Mandali in Saratoga Springs, NY, in 2016. Since then she has continued to educate herself in the healing and therapeutic aspects of yoga by completing certifications in Yin Yoga; Traditional Chinese Medicine and Yin Yoga; Yoga for Bone Health; Restorative Yoga (Levels 1 and 2); and Yoga for Posture Improvement. In addition, she has studied Mindfulness Meditation, Ayurveda, and Yoga Philosophy.

She lives in Saratoga Springs, NY, with her husband, with whom she shares three adult children and a house full of pets, and when she’s not practicing yoga or teaching in person or online, she spends her time working on her historic home, gardening, reading, kayaking, and taking long walks.
