Jehan Izhar (or J) is the founder of Mt. Baldy Yoga Loft and is a physical performance coach at Pilates Studio M, the home of Claremont’s only aerial circus performance troupe, SpinCircus! Jehan began her work in Wellness after finishing a dual degree in theatre arts and exercise and sport science at UC Santa Barbara. She started off working in workplace wellness and injury prevention exercise, she also taught Health Eating and Living classes for students on campus.
In 2010, Jehan moved from Santa Barbara to Bali, Indonesia in order to complete her yoga teacher training through Santosha Yoga School. Upon her return, she enrolled in a Master’s degree program in Kinesiology at Cal State Fullerton. It was during this time that she began her journey as a circus arts performer and coach. Not only did she train herself as a performer, but she also wrote the first aerial fitness instructor training course to be approved by the American Council on Exercise. Because of this, she became a Master Teacher for Fly Gym aerial fitness so that she could help bring the joy of aerial arts to the masses. She also became a Master Teacher for PoleMoves and coaches professional Pole Dance competitors as well as leads instructor certification courses. Jehan performs regularly with SpinCircus and she leads workshops worldwide in pole fitness, aerial arts, and flexibility & strength training for performing artists.
In the summer of 2013, Jehan opened Mt. Baldy Yoga Loft; it is the ONLY yoga & healing arts center located in the San Gabriel Mountains, and is near her home in nature at 4000ft elevation. She uses this space to teach weekly yoga classes, see clients for reiki healing, tarot card readings, and spiritual guidance. The Loft is also a creative space for artists and a community gathering space to help foster a love and connection with the natural world.
Jehan’s coaching philosophy is “empower your body, inspire your soul!” Her training methods are holistic in that she addresses the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects that are involved in working with each individual client. She is creative, fun, motivational, and personable. Her passion lies in uplifting others, and she believes in YOU.
