Janet Moon O’Brien
The Yoga Way
Janet Moon O’Brien has practiced yoga since 1998. She was drawn to yoga to calm her anxiety. With a 5-year-old, 3-year old and toddler twins, she needed to find some peace. Coincidentally, for the first time in her life, her back began to hurt. Never had she been bothered by her S-curve scoliosis until her twins began to crawl all over and in opposite directions! She found that yoga helped her to feel better in her body as well as her mind.
After 21 months of study and an extended practicum with two scoliosis students, in 2013 she received her certificate from Elise Miller to teach Yoga for Scoliosis. In 2018, Janet became a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher. This certification required years of study in the Iyengar Yoga method, a year-long mentorship with an Iyengar Yoga teacher and culminated in a weekend assessment by senior Iyengar Yoga teachers. Janet regularly attends Iyengar Yoga classes to keep her skills tuned.
Janet teaches general group yoga classes as well as special private/semi-private classes for Parkinson’s Disease and scoliosis. She is thrilled to be able to share her knowledge with other people who have scoliosis and help them become stronger, more flexible and happier in their bodies and minds.
