I first discovered yoga 20 years ago and having explored it deeper, I have come to realize it is a true passion of mine. This has led me to complete my training as an instructor as I believe that growth comes from the willingness to challenge ourselves. I find myself humbled and inspired everyday guiding my students who dive deep into themselves to realize their remarkable limitless potential. In my teaching, I use traditional Hatha Yoga as a tool to promote health, wellbeing and youthful energy. My emphasis is placed on proper alignment, balance, and breath work, making my classes challenging yet accessible. I encourage my students to work within the boundaries of their body, to love themselves, and help them incorporate modifications to fit their personal practice. I offer outdoor classes in the summer from the dedicated yoga space in my backyard. I also provide private lessons. My gratitude extends to all of the amazing people who have inspired me along my journey.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT JANET
Although I’ve worked with a variety of things for my own health, yoga was one thing I had not explored, yet always wanted to. I had the pleasure of working with Janet for my first session in her beautiful outdoor yoga space. From the very start, to the very end, Janet kept close attention to my needs as a student (being a newbie) and made very sure things were done within my limits. She has such a good energy about her and her desire to help make one successful with yoga for their health is almost palpable. I couldn’t have asked for a better first time experience with this healing art than with Janet. I think her experience combined with her caring nature sets her apart and I look forward to continuing my yoga journey with her. I would certainly recommend Janet for anyone looking for an instructor in this regard!

Janet is absolutely a dream to work with. She came with me to Phoenix to do a yoga photo shoot for my website. I was jet lagged, tired and not in the mood to take any photos. But once we got started, Janet made me feel so incredibly comfortable. Her direction and support were much needed when I just didn't want to think. I was just blown away and ecstatic when I saw how amazing the pictures turned out. She made me feel so confident, graceful and beautiful, which is not exactly how I was feeling prior to the shoot. Janet is the most wonderful, sweet and professional photographer you could ever work with. She is honest and she works very hard to make her clients happy. You won't find another photographer who has the creative experience, professionalism and trustworthy qualities that Janet has. If you are lucky enough to get a chance to work with her, I promise you will be so happy with your choice!
Janet is a very caring person and it comes through in her yoga teachings. She customized the session for the areas of my body that were giving me trouble. Janet took the time to ensure that my positioning was correct thus maximizing the benefits of the yoga practice. My body felt great for days after only one session.
Love you! Ali
Janet is relaxing yet challenging in her practice; I enjoyed her creativity and mindfulness when instructing. It's always fun to practice yoga with someone who finds a new movement you have never used before.

CORE AND BALANCE with Janet
In this class, we will be practicing a series of specific movements and postures with breath designed to build and strengthen core muscles. Balancing poses naturally engage and activate core muscles that are essential for good posture and for protecting the low back. Balancing also helps improve focus, concentration and memory.
