Janet started on the yogic path through her asana practice in 2011, while pursuing her bachelor’s degree in Religious Studies through the University of Missouri. From the moment she stepped onto the mat, she knew her life was about to change. After return to her native Colorado after college, Janet fell in love her local community at Asana Studio in her hometown and in 2013 she received her 200hr certification. Wanting to deepen her personal knowledge, she received her 500hr certification through Inner Peace Yoga Therapy. Through the lense of yoga therapy, Janet uses all aspects of yoga; not only asana, but mantra, mudra, meditation, and pranayama in both her group classes and private sessions to create a more therapeutic style of class. Janet’s approach to yoga is methodical; believing that the individual practitioner is the greatest expert on his or her own
body and through the practice of yoga will develop a greater understanding of the subtler cues the body gives. She encourages her student to follow their intuition and inner guidance to achieve a healthy and happy body and mind.
