Learning to meditate with the guidance of her Sufi teachers including Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan, Moiniddin Smith and Azimat Schreiber were pivotal points in her life. She is also very grateful for her extraordinary yoga teachers including Alan Finger and John Friend, both of whom have been a great inspiration to her. Janice believes that “Yoga is a path to wholeness. Each time you come to your mat there is an opportunity to not only work to make your body happier and healthier, but even more importantly to get back to your center. Yoga helps us to become clear, to find a gentler and sweeter view, to be courageous in the face of adversity and, hopefully, to learn how to be graceful under pressure”
