I am a 200HR RYT who has been teaching others the wonderful benefits of a yoga practice for 2 1/2 years. I would love to guide you through expanding your yoga practice and experience growth in mind, body, and spirit. I am here to provide a safe, non-judgmental space for you and to help you feel balanced both on and off the mat. I specialize in Power Yoga, which helps build strength, flexibility, and stamina. I instruct all ages, body types, and socioeconomic backgrounds. Yoga is for everyone!
Yoga has guided me to evolve both mentally and spiritually, and has helped me practice self-care, gratitude, and non-attachment. It has provided me with inner and outer strength, and has added more balance into my life. I am constantly learning something new about my practice everyday, and I love sharing something I am so passionate about with others.
Janelle is so calm in her approach to our yoga sessions, she adapts the class to my abilities. I am really happy with her style of teaching.
I will communicate with the student prior to our first class to discuss any goals with their practice, injuries, concerns, and receive feedback to help me plan our yoga practice. I understand the importance of safety, especially with new students, so I will be informative and descriptive with alignment and how different postures effect the body.
RYT 200 Certification-Corepower Yoga, December 2017
50 Hour Continuing Education-Corepower Yoga Extensions Program, January 2018
After completion of my 200Hour RYT training, I have reached out to various programs to gain experience teaching. I began a weekend yoga program at my local library, and became involved with a non-profit organization that teaches yoga to incarcerated individuals.
I have worked with beginner students and more advanced students, of all ages. I have also worked with male inmates at California State Prison and individuals at Midnight Mission shelter- a lot of different backgrounds!
It would have to be my experience teaching yoga to inmates at the prison. They were all so respectful and grateful that we came to share our practice with them. It's definitely an experience I won't forget, and I look forward to returning!
What are my goals with my yoga practice? (If there isn't one, that's totally okay, too!)
What kind of commitment am I able to make to my practice?
Are there any injuries or concerns I should let my teacher know about?
