Evolve into wholeness and health.
Become who you have always been.
Every day our bodies are working to come into balance--to be whole.
Our bodies need our help.
They talk to us through aches and pains.
They are asking for our time and attention. What can we do?
We can make better choices about what we put into our mouths
and what we put into our minds.
Yoga can help.
Yoga is a philosophy, a practice, and a lifestyle. It is a philosophy based on ethical principles such as non-harming, truthfulness, contentment, and compassion. It is a practice of physical poses, breathing techniques, and meditation. Over time yoga becomes a lifestyle which infuses our relationships and cultivates a more compassionate world.
Whether you are struggling with an illness, experiencing anxiety and stress or feeling heavy and sluggish in your body, yoga can help.
As you practice and rediscover your body through awareness, unhealthy patterns of moving and ways of thinking begin to change. Instead of trying to fix yourself and your life from the outside, you allow who you truly are to unfold. You heal from the inside out.
Despite what you may think or have seen portrayed in the media you don't have to be flexible to do yoga. All you need is an open mind and heart. If you can breathe you can do yoga.
I found yoga at a dark time in my life. I was dealing with menopause, thyroid issues and what doctors told me was depression. I knew that medication wasn't the answer for me. I went through yoga teacher training but soon discovered that I didn't want to teach in a cookie cutter way that only focused on the physical aspects of yoga. I wanted to help others using all the tools of yoga because this is what helped me. So, I became a yoga therapist and a health coach.
My promise to you is to always deliver beyond what you think you need.
A unique aspect of working with me is my YOGA WALL.
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
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.
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.
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.
