Hi! I'm Janine!
I'm the Founder and Instructor of YoGa with Janine.
I have loved movement my entire life. Growing up, I was always active and participated in as many sports as I could.
In my third year of college, I took my first yoga class, and it opened up a whole new world for me. It gave me the opportunity to relax and catch my breath after a stressful day at school. I took a few years off from yoga but returned to my mat with the desire to learn correct alignment to prevent injury, increase flexibility, and strengthen in a safe way. I loved how yoga made me feel comfortable in my body, which is why I decided to complete my 200-hour-Yoga Teacher Training at South Mountain Yoga. Becoming a yoga instructor has given me the chance to help others feel comfortable and accepting of their own bodies.
When I am not teaching and practicing yoga, I am a black belt Kung fu instructor and competitor. I have a green/yellow cord in capoeira, and I take ballet and modern dance classes.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Janine makes yoga accessible yet challenging. She is infinitely patient and incredibly down to earth; she's comfortable working with people at just about every level. I dig her.

Janine is my favorite yoga teacher ever. I always feel transformed by the end of her classes, inside out!

Janine is a wonderful instructor. She really cares about each of her students and individualizes her attention to you. She has a calming presence and will make sure you get the most out of her class.
Dr. Raymond Capra,
I have practiced yoga with Janine for over two years and with her help have gotten so much stronger. Her enthusiasm has been one of the greatest motivators.
