Born and raised in Berlin , Germany , Janine found her way to Yoga in 2008 during her late teens . Having come from a background of gymnastics and contemporary dance , she was drawn to the Asana practice at first , but not long after that it was the feeling of wholeness , a calm mind and the ability to see things differently - a shift in perception that has led her into deeper studies of Yoga.
Janine successfully completed her 200 RYT Multi-Style , attained 300 H Jivamukti certification under the guidance of Sharon Gannon , as well as undergoing an intensive mentorship program in the Jivamukti method . Additionally she is certified in the Yin Yoga method as taught by Paul Grilley and Sarah Powers and has taken the Shades of Yoga 200 & 300 H TTC.
She has practiced and studied various different Hatha Yoga traditions such as Iyengar and Vinyasa Flow as well as Restorative and Yin Yoga. She continues to explore the blend of different styles and likes to share the benefits of a well balanced Yoga practice - " Your body , your Yoga !"
Over the past years Janine has successfully led Yoga retreats and co-facilitated Yoga Teacher Trainings across Europe , the UK and Asia ( Thailand ) . She also taught in commercial studios in her home town Berlin.
She is convinced that Yoga is for everyone and that it offers opportunity to come home to oneself . Her passion lies in sharing exactly that with students and future Yoga teachers .Her teaching comes with integrity - therefore she feels she will never stop being a student of Yoga. Constantly learning with and through others is what makes this journey called life such a special one - finding the way back to our natural state - the state of Yoga.
