Senior Yoga Teacher

If we truly want to be happy we must go within! This is one of the many things that yoga has taught me. In 1999 I started practicing yoga and in many ways it saved my life – Because of this I decided to share the gift of yoga with as many people as possible. I had to follow my heart and perhaps a road less traveled.

Janet has found that although she loves training people, yoga has become her passion. Yoga can be done by anyone, from athletes to the disabled. And it helps people on so many levels, whether it be physically,

mentally or spiritually. Yoga meets you where you are and works with you at that place. Janet believes

that if you surrender to the practice of yoga, it will lead you to achieve balance in all facets of your life.

Yoga is teaching me about self-discipline. It is also making me stronger and flexible. I want to keep learning about all the things Yoga has to offer. It is truly a joy for me to practice Yoga every day and I'm happy to share that joy with you. Please feel free to tell me your experiences with Yoga and how it has helped you. 初めまして。よろしくお願いします。

I have been practicing yoga for 15 years. Through my yoga practice I have learned the foundations of yoga and the major health benefits. However, when life tested me to my limits is when I found the true meaning of yoga. My practice is where I learned my strengths, my courage, how to love  unconditionally, and who I really am. I learned how to be a patient mother and am empathetic friend, I learned that yoga can ground you, so that you can see through the struggles of life and shine even through the storms.

During a major transition in my life, I found Studio 108's 200-hour teacher training, and knew right away that this is what I was born to do. I was born to teach. I was born to guide others through the struggles and transitions of life so, they may come out the other side empowered. Yoga is a practice that takes us through doorways of pure possibilities to reach our dreams. I am honored to be a part of this studio and community of empowered yogis making a difference in people’s lives. Namaste.

I moved to Tampa in Oct 2018, and I tried to get used to living in this new environment and lifestyle without friends and family. That’s when I met Yoga, which connects my mind to body, helps me to find the peace in my heart and reminds me of self-care and self-awareness. I have kept practicing Yoga since then. I just completed my 200 hours teacher training in 2020 and 100 hours Advanced Principles of Alignment Teacher Training in 2021 with Missy and met a lovely family at studio 108, I do believe that every change and choice you made in your life makes you stronger. Yoga is one of the best choices I have ever made.

I began practicing yoga on and off in 2010.  At first I didn’t think it was for me, but I tried again a few months later while in search of comfort and peace and I found it to be exactly what I needed. Since that time I have been practicing regularly and I evolve more and more each day.  For me yoga is the perfect balance of meditation and movement and I love that about it.  It has helped me in so many different aspects of life over the last few years and I am so grateful for the ability to practice.

Tracy

Tracy is a certified 200RYT yoga instructor by the esteemed Missy White in the summer of 2020. After practicing yoga off-and-on for many years and wanting to have a deeper knowledge and growth in her practice, she decided to take advantage of the downtime due to the pandemic and focus on something positive.

Tracy discovered that the practice and knowledge of yoga, to include all the teachings that are part of the study, helps people look inward and learn about oneself and how to grow. The practice is not just physical, but also mental and spiritual and has the possibility of transforming your life.
