In 1996, she traveled to India, the birthplace of her grandfather, and became dedicated to the path of yoga. Janet blends the alchemy of her own practice with decades of studentship. Her teachings emanate from her own practice, allowing awareness to blend with movement and breath. Based in San Francisco, she leads trainings, immersions, retreats, workshops and more.
