Janet has a way of teaching that is simple and pure and poignant. Friendly and relatable, going to a class with Janet is like hanging out with a positive & inspirational best friend. She always seem to be right on the mark with her comments about life, which she interweaves in every class with a healthy dose of humor. Her physical cues are always spot on, with options for everyone. I ALWAYS leave Janet feeling better - body, mind and soul. Which is why I come.

A lot happens when I attend Janet’s classes. I enter feeling vulnerable, uncertain, doubtful, and distracted by the outside world. And then Janet starts talking and guiding, smiling and laughing, cueing and demonstrating, challenging and encouraging us, and by the end I feel empowered and enriched with new knowledge, whether it be an alignment cue that makes my practise stronger and safer, or yogic wisdom that helps me see the world in a more balanced way. My favourite lesson from Janet so far has been that “the wobble is where we learn.” I do a lot of wobbling in Janet’s classes, and she is a teacher who I trust and respect to guide me in the many lessons of yoga.

Janet is recognized for her authentic style, she cares about her students and their well-being. Her teaching is consistent. She is always prepared to deliver her best. Every class offers a message of yoga philosophy, or a sharing of her own life experiences. She leads our practise with simplicity and ease, her cues are succinct and easy to follow. Janet offers her students a solid learning experience at every class. In Janet’s class I feel both inspired and encouraged. Deborah Bordignon, Whistler, 2019 "I've known and been practicing with Janet for nearly a decade. She is a beacon of grounded goodness. Her yoga classes are inspirational, playful, powerful and nurturing. There's a wisdom to Janet's teachings that always reaches off the mat. Thanks, Janet!"
Katherine Fawcet, Whistler, 2019

"When you show up to a Janet class, you just know you are going to walk away with something powerful. Her classes are infused with passion and honesty, a rawness that I believe can touch every yogi on their mat. Janet has taught me that yoga is much more than just strength and focus, and for a somewhat beginner yogi that has transformed my practice into something more meaningful." Darby Macgill, Whistler, 2019

Janet what I would say to people who haven’t had the pleasure of meeting you or taking a class is “no one will have your back and inspire you to be your best self on or off the mat like you do!” For that I am grateful! Big hugs, Linda Godin, Whistler, 2019

Dear Janet, I wanted to write to thank you so much for sharing your spirit – your passion, wisdom, love and beautiful caring heart – with me and the fellow participants at the 2013 Baja Yoga Retreat. The vacation was one the exceeded my expectations, and you were a large part of that. Your took my Yoga to a whole new level. Not only did I become stronger and more confident in my practice with your guidance, I also found more connection to the Spirit with your wisdom you shared. You expanded and deepened my ability and knowledge, and excited my passion for Yoga even more. I feel everyone should go and immerse in the energy of your passion, be guided by your wisdom, and be touched by your friendship. Thank you from the depths of my soul for your generosity, guidance, spirit and friendship. A retreat with you is more than an escape, it is a journey of discovery. Thank you. Deep love and gratitude,
Sonia, Vancouver 2014

The Baja Yoga and Surf Retreat was my 40th birthday present to myself and turned out to be everything I had hoped for and more. Our home base, Prana del Mar, was incredible. Luxurious accommodations, two gorgeous yoga studios, a stunning semi- private beach for walks or meditation and amazing food were just some of the highlights. But what really made the week truly memorable was Nicole and Janet. These two very experienced and inspiring teachers have different styles, but compliment each other beautifully both in the yoga studio and around the dinner table, where the conversation flowed and laughter was abundant. Yoga practise with Janet was always exciting and fun. She played great music and always knew just how far she could push us. She was very encouraging too, helping me to find the confidence to try new challenging poses or to take others to levels I didn’t know I was capable of. I have never done anything like this before but I am already trying to figure out how I can come back again next year.

It was a pleasure to have been part of your Maui Yoga Retreat. You did a wonderful job (from planning to execution) and made me realize I could participate in most poses despite my limitations. We really had a great group of yogis and loved the synergy of our group. I loved the setting – Lumeria, Maui – it was really spectacular and first class. Thank you for your individualized attention and for you positive creative energy. 
I look forward to your future retreats.

Janet creates such a wonderful space to let go of regular life and relax into your practice. It was such a luxury to get to practice yoga 3 times a day at a beautiful retreat resort (Lumeria Maui), in a tropical environment surrounded by likeminded people. Add in a splash of tropical drinks, healthy delicious food and good conversation and it took the typical beach vacation to a whole other level (with plenty of beach time too). I was able to conquer new poses that I never would have normally attempted and came back with a new appreciation for the challenges and clarity that yoga provides me. I describe the yoga retreat as “fancy summer camp for grown ups” with fast friends, meal times and lots of optional activities. It was truly an amazing experience!   - Rosey, Vancouver

"It was evident to me from the moment I met Janet that she teaches from the heart. Every class with her is an opportunity -- to check-in, to be curious in asana, and to ground. Janet does a beautiful job holding space for personal transformation."  Laura Ward, Whistler
