Janet‘s favorite aspect of Hot Yoga is the body-mind-spirit connection. You are more than just your thoughts. You move your body, quiet the mind and connect to your spirit. This connection encourages us to look within and self-reflect. You may come to understand your body more, release anything negative you are consciously or unconsciously hanging onto in your body. This encourages physical and emotional healing as you slow down and focus on the present, focusing on your breath, which greatly affects your mood. That’s where the true healing journey begins.
Janet grew up on the Outer Banks and lives in Kitty Hawk. When she’s not teaching or practicing yoga, she enjoys spending time outdoors whether it’s on the beach or in the woods.
