Janine first started practicing yoga and mindfulness 12 years ago when she was pregnant with her son, Jude. Following her own pregnancy she became passionate about the benefits that yoga and breathwork can bring to pregnant women and help ease the stressful transition into motherhood and beyond. She found that this mindful practice had a transformative effect on all aspects of her life, and soon found herself looking at the world through bright new eyes.
Janine has most recently designed and delivered the successful Kids Yoga and Mindfulness teacher training with Chelsea Canovas, which has received accreditation from The Independent Yoga Network. Janine has been co-teaching with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli on pregnancy yoga
teacher trainings post natal and womb yoga sessions since 2011.
