Janik

Registered Yoga Teacher

Janik was first introduced to yoga about 10 years ago. Initially, she struggled with it because she couldn't tolerate being with herself in silence for very long. However, she persevered and continued to practice yoga on and off for a few years. Janik became more consistent with her practice over time and was finally able to discover the real power of yoga. Her love of yoga started growing from that moment on as she realized that yoga was so much more than just a physical practice. It's a practice of quieting the mind, which ultimately brings inner peace, healing, transformation, growth and much deserved happiness.

In January 2017, Janik took the leap and enrolled in a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training as she thrived in following her journey to a better way of life. One where there is less stress & anxiety and more inner bliss & mindfulness. As she followed this path, she quickly found a deep love to teach others. Janik truly believes that yoga can change lives and therefore want to help other people live a healthier and more balanced life.
