Janine Hayes

Ashtanga Teacher

Always a disciplined child, Janine found solace through physical activity. Her pursuits let her to the study of performance arts at The School of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, and Ryerson Polytechnic University where she graduated from the Theatre Program. After graduation, Janine spent more than a decade travelling the world, working with various companies as a Performance Dance Artist. After retiring from this field, Janine returned to Canada in search of something to once again focus and discipline her mind. It was at this time she found yoga and hasn’t looked back since. The practice simultaneously exercises the body while stilling the mind. Janine believes that with discipline and an open mind, yoga can help bring peace to the practitioner.
