Welcome to Janine Yoga! I personally have discovered that yoga not only helps with strength and flexibility, but also creates peace, less stress and more solutions when facing any situation in my life as a woman, wife, mother, and teacher.
My yoga journey began in 1996 in a semester long class in college. Over the last two decades, I’ve taken classes with teachers of many styles.
I love the full practice of yoga – the physicality of asanas, the relaxation, the breathing of pranayama and the meditative stillness.
I teach many styles of yoga – vigorous, prenatal, gentle, chair - because I want yoga and its benefits to be accessible to everyone and because there are times when we need to pick up our pace, and times when we need to slow it down. The benefits of practicing yoga are manifold. And you, too, can experience them. With practice.
Welcome again to my yoga website. I hope you will find helpful information about the classes and workshops I offer and an understanding of my outlook and approach to yoga.
“The success of yoga does not lie in the ability to perform postures, but in how it positively changes the way we live our life and our relationships.” T.K.V. Desikachar
"Practicing yoga with you has and continues to benefit me, emotionally, physically and spiritually, which I consider to be the complete yoga experience. Throughout the many years of participating in your classes I have learned to incorporate each of these aspects in my practice as well as in my life. Your constant guidance helps me to honor my body, mind and soul but also to challenge myself to go further in my yoga and awareness for myself and others. Through your teachings and words of wisdom my mediation practice has also grown and helps keep my life in balance which is not always easy to do:).
Those who know me know my passion for yoga so I have gotten asked many times about how to get started and where to go. Since I have been practicing with you my response is "go to a class with Janine". I explain how they will feel comfortable and even in their first class will learn how to begin the yoga journey that never ends. There has never been a time during or after your class that I haven't felt your awareness and compassion that you share with me and all of us who are fortunate to have you as our teacher. Thank you, Janine."
