Meet Your Instructor

Your instructor, Janet Rae Humphrey, C-IAYT, has some asymmetries in her body secondary to a car accident in 1997. Through her yoga practice, Janet experiences less pain and better function. After over 17 years of yoga practice, she is an active 75-year-old woman determined to help others feel better.

Please listen to your body as you practice and move out of a pose that causes pain. Anyone who wants to feel improvement can do so through practice, concentration and determination. Please, enjoy practicing yoga with Janet.
