Janine’s yogic path is one of continual folding and unfolding unto itself, and she finds it ever expanding outwardly in colorful spirals.
Her physical practice began through dance, but having experience some injury and imbalance (as life often offers) she found yoga to be a welcoming practice that allowed her to find harmony, wholeness and a safe place to explore deeper connections in her body. What she didn’t expect was yoga to offer her a profound relationship to her life purpose through teaching and healing. For Janine, yoga invites each individual into the heartfelt space of divine collaboration between mind and body, and between individual and universal. Really, yoga simply invited into her life, more growth and more fun!
Janine’s dynamic and conscientious, yinyang approach to asana allows students to discover their own authentic synergy, rhythm and voice through movement, be it fast or slow, external or internal. Each class with her is a sweet journey through caverns and skies intending you to feel the simple joy of being in this embodied human experience. Being a Reiki Master, Janine offers a unique perspective to working with energetics and the subtle body systems and lends gentle guidance through compassionate touch.
Janine's 2020 teaching schedule:
Laughing Lotus Yoga Center (3271 16th Street, Mission District, San Francisco, CA)
Tuesdays | Thursdays 4pm Lotus Yin - We will move deeply and slowly through grounded asana. The Tao and chinese meridian systems are often referenced, poetry and ambient music is enjoyed, with lots of freedom and space to listen to the breath.
Tuesdays 5:30pm Happy Hour Flow - This uplifting class enjoys Laughing Lotus's signature vinyasa style with more focus on asana and movement. We will transition fluidly and mindfully between poses with awareness of spinal and spatial alignment.
Sundays 6:15pm Restorative - This yummy class is so deeply healing, as we take our time to fall into fully-supported poses with lots of props. Reiki and a soothing soundscape is offered.
Satori Yoga Studio (110 Sutter Street, Financial District, San Francisco, CA)
Saturdays 10:30am Vinyasa Flow - This 75 minute class is an all levels class similar to a Lotus Flow class, but with time to break down a challenging pose or enjoy a deeper cool down.
