Jana Roemer: Healer, Yogini, Co-Creatrix of @Mindful_Mamas

My NativeAdVantage:


Jana Roemer is a Mama. Wife. Sister. Lover. Yogini. Devotee. Student. Teacher. Mentor. Astrologer. Healer. There are so many ways to be a Human and within each life, we live multiple incarnations determined by our choices. To explain who I am by listing experiences, hardships or moments of joy only offers a distorted glimpse. We live. We make choices. We deal with consequences. We break, we grow, we forgive, we celebrate, we laugh. This is life. We all do it and it looks different for each of us. In the end, we all long for the same things: To be heard. To be seen. To belong. To love and be loved.

What do I do best?

I’m really good at finding incredible mentors who forward my understanding and experience in my fields of interest. When I started teaching yoga, meditation and philosophy, I quickly recognized the possibility to utilize a simple yoga class as a platform to align people with their potential, purpose and power. I guide classes that inspire people to take action in their lives. Those brave Souls who choose to join in me in a teacher training or immersive retreat usually think they are coming to learn to teach yoga, but I have an honest ulterior motive to rinse them clean of anything that holds them back from discovering a deep well of self love and purpose. The most common thing I hear from people after they complete a course is “That was nothing like I expected, and everything I didn’t know I needed. You couldn’t have put that on the flier, it just has to be done.”

What makes me the best version of myself?

The best version of myself? My first mentor, Ally Bogard, told me that if I was to teach for her school, I could only teach what I was practicing! That message has really stuck with me. When there are 50 eyeballs staring at me as I share the teachings, that voice of my mentor is very much present still a decade later. It’s kept me honest as a teacher and rooted in studentship. At the end of 2010, I made a promise to myself to meditate every. When I was a brand new mama, I didn’t maintain that daily practice and that is when I realized what an anchor meditation is in living my best life. Clean eating, heaps of super foods and spring water are key to my best Self. Yoga nidra 3 – 5 times a week as completely shifted my reality. The harsh inner critic that I lived with my whole life moved out when I kicked up my nidra practice. The use of a powerful Sankalpa inside that practice made all the difference. It’s been a rebirth of my mind space.

What are my aspirations?

My main aspiration right now is to bring Yoga Nidra to as many different people in the world. Any by many people, I mean millions. The practice of yoga has evolved for me over 17 years of practice and without a doubt, nidra has had the most profound affect on my mental health. Speaking of which, that is another aspiration: not only to remove the stigma around the words mental health, but to reclaim the statement. Of course I want my mental health! When I’m 108 years old, I want is a sharp and healthy mind! That means I need to do something to sharpen my mind every single day. I think it’s weird that people feel shame when it comes to talking about what they are doing for their mental health! I also want to reclaim astrology as a form of self study and a way to learn how to relate compassionately with people. I’m not talking about horoscopes from the newspaper, but a deep dive into birth charts and what it reveals about the nature of the mind and Soul’s purpose.

My Biggest Success?

Every time another group of Soul’s completes a 200 hour or 300 hour yoga teacher training and they honestly LOVE themselves, I feel like I won the lottery. To witness someone fall in love with themself? There are few things that touch my heart so deeply than knowing that I had a part in that, even if it was just there to hold the light as they find their way through their own inner tunnels. That and being present for two of the most significant moments in my life: To care for my father leading to his last breath and birthing my son at home with no interventions. Both were big days that I am grateful to have had the mental capacity and heart to be fully present.

My Most Challenging Moment?

Most Challenging Moment? This is a really hard question. Challenging moments are not comparable. There have been many and each one has such a unique sound, texture and flavor. What I can say about challenges is that they become more torturous when I try to run away. When I remain present in the face of adversity, every single time I renew my faith in my capacity to overcome anything. That moment of summiting the mountain is worth every uncomfortable effort.

My Motto?

There are so many different ways to be a Human. How can we be more loving and accepting of all the ways?


Live is a choice. Are you exercising yours?

My Favorite People/Role Models?

I have the most extraordinary circle of women in my life who are all doing exceptional work in their own way to translate the ancient teachings of awakening while channeling their own unique message and medium. Ally Bogard, Sasha Bahador, Tanis Fishman, Elena Brower, Tara Judelle, Mary Beth Larue, Kristen Campbell, Kate Thorson, Meghan Currie, Blaire Houghton to name a few. My husband and my son keep me on my toes and grounded at the same time.

My Favorite Places/Destinations?

The inner workings of the subconscious mind is one of my favorite places to travel – first to understand what is there and second to re-wire the programs and conditions that are driving my unconscious behaviors. I also love going inward to listen to the different messages coming from my organs and various body parts. I also love to be a tour guide for others to do the same.

External world locations? I could write you a long list of small Canadian towns and cities that I love. Top three in no particular order: Golden, BC – Squamish, BC – Quadra Island, BC (I guess BC is a theme ;-). I also love Dharamkot and a little beach in India that I will never reveal the name of so it remains quiet and special. I’m currently falling in love with Croatia while running a 300 hour YTT here. New Zealand is a really special place on the earth. Venice, CA has my heart right now. I think it’s because I know it won’t be my forever home, so I am cherishing it while I can.

My Favorite Products/Objects?

I have warm and cozy, stylish, hand crafted, cashmere poncho from Priestess + Dear that I LOVE and take everywhere. The wild foraged Chaga and Reishi mushroom my magical friends from Canada foraged for me. I make a daily tea with them as my base for my superfood potions. Currently obsessed with Ameo Essential oils.

My Current Passions?

I have a really cool project I am working on. It’s a mash up of Yoga Nidra and Astrology. The way I see Astrology as it is in the sky right now, is that it is filled with clues to the collective (un)conscious. Personal birth charts show everything from the obvious to that which is hidden, even to ourselves. Yoga Nidra is a journey to our inner-verse where we can reprogram the subconscious mind and heal old wounds. The use of a Sankalpa inside the practice directs more specifically, what we are healing in any given moment. I am currently mapping out 2018’s collective (un)conscious patternings through the cosmos to guide me in writing yoga nidra scripts that will be recorded, layered with medicinal music and released at the start of each zodiac season in 2018 (Libra season, Scorpio season, etc). Then I plan to travel all over the world to teach yoga nidra trainings for people who wish to guide the practice. At the same time, run workshops for those who have no desire to guide nidra, but want to expand their potential to harness the power of the practice. I also do personal chart readings for a number of reasons including sankalpa design and more! It’s all so fun! Never does any of it feel like work!
