A Mindfulness Life Center is Closed.
From January 2018 until March 2020, Janet had the immense pleasure of teaching at A Mindfulness Life Center in Scottsdale, Arizona. Due to the pandemic, this outstanding yoga studio has closed its doors along with those of many other yoga studios.
In order to keep her students in the flow of yoga, Janet is now offering live classes over Zoom at 2 p.m. Arizona time on Monday through Thursday. Click on the CLASSES tab for more information.
Over 55 recordings of the live classes have been edited and are now available to watch on your computer or tablet by renting a video for 8 days for $8. Additional shorter bonus videos are from $2 to $6. The best deal is buying a monthly subscription of $15 for unlimited access. New videos will be added weekly. No technology skills are required! Just set up an email and password and practice to your hearts content. Check out the ON DEMAND tab.
Don’t Let Current Restrictions Keep You from Your Yoga Practice
If you already practice, you know that yoga is more powerful than most people give it credit for. It is both a way to connect with your spiritual side and a vehicle to transform your body. But only if you’re able to maintain your practice. For those of us who flourished in the studio but feel adrift with closures still in effect, it can be difficult to wrap your brain around creating a beneficial home practice. Yes, the benefits of the collective in person are multifold, but it’s also important to remember that your practice can be what you make of it. And now, more than ever, you need your practice to help sustain you during these challenging times.
So rather than leave your mat in the closet, it’s time to get it out and to get creative with all of the options available to you. See All

Our StudentsLove Chair Yoga
I started taking Janet’s chair yoga classes almost 6 years ago. I have had a great deal of pain from fibromyalgia and arthritis for decades. Chair yoga is the first exercise class I have been able to do without pain and continue over the long term. My balance, stamina, strength and flexibility have all improved dramatically. The classes are fun and each class is different. Janet takes a personal interest in each of her yoga students. And the best part is I have made lots of new friends. I highly recommend Janet’s classes to anyone regardless of age or physical condition.Barbara S. - Age 68
I am 87 years old, but don’t tell me that I am over the hill because I am still climbing it. Yoga helps me to renew my mind, body and soul.Elsa - Age 87
Janet has taught me a lot about my muscles and how to isolate them for a really good workout without me moving around. I can do yoga while I sit or stand and hold onto the back of the chair. It is really amazing the great workout I get with the chair yoga classes. I am very grateful for Janet and the chair yoga classes.Seisha S. — Age 79
My primary care physicians’ comments accompanying my lab results ended with: “Whatever you’re doing, keep it up!”
My reply consisted of one word, Yoga. : )Kenny K. - Age 64
