The body is designed to heal.
We just need to understand it.
In my early 20s I found myself searching for a way(s) to help my body heal from MS.
Little did I know that it would bring me to where I am today,
a yoga therapist and health coach.
We all have a story. Your story has led you here.
I’m thrilled that you are here.
Although I have yet to learn your personal story,
I have a feeling that you’ve been through some stuff.
You’ve been on your own journey of trying to find someone or something
to help you feel better, move better, or lose weight.
If you haven’t gotten the results you’ve wanted, please don’t give up yet.
Know that what you’ve tried just wasn’t right for you.
Instead of trying another program or diet, how about taking a different approach?
One that involves you becoming aware of what your body needs.
I have overcome paralysis, back pain, hip dislocation, fatigue,
food addictions, cravings and more, and through it all there was not one
diet plan or program that worked. I was done with deprivation and
feeling like there was something wrong with me.
I suddenly became drawn to yoga. As I practiced yoga,
I began to pay attention to what my body was telling me.
I learned to understand it and to trust it.
Now after 30 plus years of working at this I want to help you learn
to listen to the quiet whispers of your body.
Diets and programs are usually short-term fixes.
My work with you will uncover the underlying cause(s)
and it will establish long-term lasting change.
I know you may feel hopeless or consumed by pain. I understand.
There were so many times I wanted to give up too.
What I know from my own work and from my work with clients
is that the body is designed to heal. We just need to understand it.
If you are finding this hard to believe
then BELIEVE in my belief and experience that the body can heal.
If reading this has stirred you to want to act,
please listen to it and say YES to yourself. Sign up for a free consultation.

and take the next best action that feels right for where you are right now.
“I have been getting great results working with Janet for just a couple of months. Two spinal fusions and a hip replacement have left me with a very rigid posture. I have gained back a lot of flexibility, strength and balance. Janet is a wonderful coach.”
— Rick Wellenstein
A little bit more about me...
I love walking and being in nature.
I connect deeply with and spoil
our dog Cleo.
I’m married to the same wonderful man I said YES to in 1983.
I am a grandmother of three adorable, funny, and sweet imaginative beings – Elias, Owen and Holly.
I have lived in WI my entire life so far.
I love to create with my painting.
I have a knack for design and know what will look good in a house.
I am continually learning about the body and nutrition – there is absolutely nothing more fun.
Cooking is healing for me.
“As I continue to work with Janet I gain a deeper understanding of what good movement feels like for my body. Janet provides the tools, specific to you that will encourage those “light-bulb” moments. Her nutritional counseling prompted some beneficial lifestyle modifications for me. I’m stronger, happier and healthier. My body and I are most grateful.”
