You don't need to fix your body.
Just understand it.

Searching for someone or something to fix your body isn't a long-term solution.

While you may get temporary relief, overtime you’ll find the same problems resurface because you haven't uncovered the cause and created new habits.

I understand your struggle

I’ve been through the journey of trying to fix my own body. I found that once
I stopped trying to find an outside source to fix my body, I slowed down, and I became mindful about how I was moving and eating.  It was in the stillness that I was able to hear what my body had been trying to tell me all along.

 

You might be asking yourself. So how do I start this process of uncovering the cause and creating change?

 

That’s where I come in. As a certified Yoga Therapist and Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, I have spent countless hours studying the body and years working with clients. My approach is to help you slow down, mindfully move, breathe and eat. Always tuning in to listen to your own body so that you know what you need.

YOGA WALL

This is one unique aspect of working with me.

If you suffer from back pain the yoga wall can be used to help you achieve spinal traction releasing tight muscles around the spine and relieving compression on the nerves between the vertebrae.

If you are lacking the strength right now to hold some yoga poses you will find that you can do them with the yoga wall.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

I have been seeing Janet one on one after I had 4 major surgeries in 7 weeks.
She is very observant and knowledgeable in being able to target the needed areas and customize movements to your abilities for successful rehabilitation. I’m continuing to improve.

CAROL PASBRIG

After having minor back surgery a chiropractor referred me to Janet. I needed to strengthen my core but I knew I wouldn’t fit in a group class at that point. Janet specialized my yoga program to what I needed. She is caring and listens to what I need. I enjoy my time with her and will continue to see her as needed in the future.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

As an ultra runner, my body and diet take a beating during my training season. I sought Janet's help to reset my nutrition and muscle balance during my early season. She was able to help get me back on track by getting me back in the kitchen and being mindful of what I was consuming. As a result, I was able to drop 10 pounds. I also struggle with lower back pain and flexibility issues. Janet worked with me on a joint routine and basic yoga movements to help me with core strength, flexibility and range of motion. These routines have now become a part of my daily routine which not only help my running but also helps my focus at work.

I love working with Janet. I have learned so much; yoga, breath work, mudras and creating a new relationship with food that emphasizes listening to my body. It has been a wonderful journey. I am grateful for her compassionate, encouraging, and individualized approach.

Due to an illness, I became physically immobile for close to 6 months. Working with Janet has helped me regain my mobility and improve my state of mind.

Having almost accepted the chronic pain in my knees, hips, and back as “normal” and to be expected as I age, I feel grateful to have had Janet’s guidance over the past year to help me address those issues. Janet’s expert knowledge of how the body moves and works together is unparalleled. She quickly and correctly diagnosed problems with my posture and walking gait, and patiently explained how I could focus on these imbalances. One year later, and I am now able to walk without discomfort and pain. And perhaps more importantly, I feel I now have the knowledge to help myself when facing a recurring ache or a new challenge.
