Testimonials

“Janine is a breath of fresh air. She is warm, grounded, sincere, honest and has a genuine passion for healing.  As a teacher she is direct, clear and compassionate. She uses her sensitivity as an empath to really dive into and FEEL the needs of her students. Her public yoga classes are AMAZING, but you are really lucky if you are able to take one of her workshops or work with her privatelyI recently took her “Hands on Assisting” workshop for Healers and Yoga Instructors (I am both) and she was able to help me realize how much I was limiting my own empathic abilities because of my own fears. Her training really helped me look at my students with a whole new perspective, and for that I am so, so grateful.  She is the kind of yogi that you know practices on and OFF the mat and she is the kind of human that you want to share with and learn from, a true healer and leader. I can safely say that I feel lucky and privileged to be able to learn from and work with such an amazing soul!” ~Ryan Lutz Empathic Healer/Yoga Instructor Los Angeles, CA

 

“I’ve been a student of Janine’s for a few months.  She’s an amazing teacher and is really able to articulate all of the various steps required to get the most out of any posture.  I love her method of instruction and the way that she customizes any given pose based on what my body is capable of.  Always pushing me forward, but mindful of my prior injuries and checking in on me to make sure it all feels okay.  She radiates joy when you see her and its contagious.  When you’re done with Janine’s class, you feel like you’ve really challenged yourself, and your body also feels amazing.  As someone that struggles with chronic pain, that’s the highest complement that I could ever give someone…and Janine gets it : )” ~Angela Saverice-Rohan

“While on a recent tour through LA, I took some Forrest Yoga classes with Janine. They were wonderful. She took time to work with me and address my specific needs.  Her hands-on assistance provided clear direction, her language helpful, enthusiasm about Forrest Yoga evident, and dedication to expanded study clear. “~Becky alter

“I love coming to Yogala Echo Park for Monday afternoon classes (5:15 PM) with Janine Glass. She specializes in Forrest Yoga , a popular style of yoga which focuses on the body’s core. Janine is really good at kicking your ass yogi-style, making you sore, and making you love it. She always adds something new & exciting, probably something you haven’t tried before (even if you’re an experienced yogi), so the class is always fun! She’s great at taking requests for target areas of the body and incorporating those goals into practice.”~Dorothy Roe

“I have been attending yoga classes taught by Janine Glass for over a year now,  and have seen both her and her classes grow tremendously. Janine has a keen sense of knowing how to read her students and creating a yoga class that is suitable for all levels including myself.  Her attention to detail, guided by her growing talent of teaching yoga, has kept me coming to her class weekly. Since I began her classes, l have experienced much more flexibility in my stiff spine, and I feel more flexible and grounded every time I leave. Janine is a caring and loving person who takes a personal interest in her students and their progress. I couldn’t be more pleased to know her personally and to be a regular student in her classes.” ~John Ditmar

“I was completely new to yoga when I began taking private lessons with Janine in 2011.  I am so happy to be working with her – she is patient with beginners and is very attentive to individual needs and capabilities.  I feel like I’ve learned a lot, and I have definitely gained strength, flexibility, and confidence in my body, in only a few months.  Each week, Janine focuses on a different aspect (strength, core work, releasing tension, etc.), which not only keeps the lessons interesting, but allows me to work on particular areas that need attention at any given point.  Also, she always explains the traditional learning behind poses and breathing techniques, which makes everything I’m working on more meaningful.  Overall, she keeps the pace interesting and challenging, and she is wonderful at encouraging even a newbie like me to try new things and push myself.  Even though I know each session will be a real workout, I look forward to my time with Janine every week!” ~Catherine Anderson

“I have been working with Janine for almost 2 years now and she  is a wonderful yoga teacher. Not only does she really care about her students well-being and safety, but she creates each yoga session specifically to what my body needs that day.  She gives the most wonderful hands-on adjustments and has a real knack being able to see and feel how the body needs to adjust to get into the pose properly.   She teaches you the right way on how to do the pose and works with you to get there gradually.  I have had some low back pain in recent months and Janine has worked with me diligently to get me out of pain.  Her personal one-on-one sessions are great and I highly recommend her.” ~Barbara Taub

“Janine leads yoga after the Dog Haus Running Club’s 3.4 mile run.  She leads such  great yoga sessions after our run that I am feeling my body become much  more flexible and I don’t have knee pains after my runs. Since doing Yoga the pain has subsided and I wake up the next day just feeling great.” ~Jessica Nerio
