Hi, I´m Janet. Nice to meet you.
I was born and raised in the USA, but living abroad since 2015 between Turkey the UK and Portugal where I currently reside.
I was trained and lived years as a dancer, but dance for me was always a therapy, an expression of my spirit, and a means to foster a healthy connection with my body. During a very difficult time in my life, a friend suggested a deep breathing practice to get me through the rough times. It changed everything. The light went on and I began to practice Yoga and meditation diligently. I can’t say my life’s problems disappeared, but I can say that my responses to the roughest of times became calmer, more centered, and more productive. I even became grateful for the growth that life’s challenges provide.
Yoga brought me to a deeper level of care and respect for my body. I began to realize the medicinal and magical quality of food. Food became as important to me as my yoga, and my struggle with body image, breakouts, my love for a drink, a smoke, a cake, and my life-long self-loathing just melted away naturally. Food became my friend, not my tormentor. I had found what I had looked for years to find- peace in my body. And I know my work is to listen to others and support them in deciphering their own individual formula.
