When I first started working with Janelle two months ago, I was drinking two Red Bulls a day, skipping breakfast, and had ignored the gym for six months because of a running injury.
While working with Janelle as my health coach, we set goals to improve my mental, physical, and spiritual health. I haven’t had a Red Bull in two months, I eat delicious açái bowls for breakfast daily, we set attainable fitness goals, and I leave our monthly check-ins feeling good about myself.
Janelle is the perfect balance of accountability and support. I feel comfortable telling her when I “slip” from the plan. It’s easy to open up to Janelle and you can tell she thoughtfully is developing some way to help you achieve your goals each time we meet. I am so grateful for her, and the past four months have truly improved my quality of life and is 100% attributed to Janelle.
I started working with Janelle during this past April in a 4-week program called Spring into Summer Reset. During these 4 weeks, Janelle was an amazing source of support and information – she taught us so much about the benefits of consuming whole foods versus highly processed foods, and how important it is to stay hydrated throughout the day. She recommended tools, such as the Insight Timer app, to help kick start our journey into meditation. I found this extremely helpful as I was able to explore it at my own pace and figure out for myself what kinds of meditations worked best for me!
After the 4-week program was over, I started a one-on-one coaching program with her. Her guidance and genuine interest in helping me reach my goals made it so easy to keep up my motivation week after week. She makes you feel so good about accomplishing even the smallest task, and I always feel more positive after talking with her. Even if I wasn’t upset going into our conversation, I always feel lighter after talking with her than I did before. Janelle always provides such a positive and caring environment to learn and grow – I’m so glad I’ve had the opportunity to work with her!
Before working with Janelle, I was lost in many different aspects of my life. I wasn’t sure which direction to go in and where to begin. I was unsure that anyone would really be able to help me. The biggest obstacle I was facing when I came to Janelle was self-love. Watching her over the years and seeing how much love she has for herself and others drew me in to wanting to work with her. In such a short time of 3 months, she seriously transformed the way that I think. I have never felt so much love for myself. I have never been so confident in my day to day life. I would recommend working with Janelle- she will touch upon every area of your life from mental, to spiritual, to finance, to physical and give you the tools you need to succeed in whichever area you want to make a change!
Janelle is such a beautiful breathe of fresh air; truly an incredibly connected being who listens deeply and hears you on a level you didn’t know was possible. Janelle helped me see how much I was accomplishing and unraveling despite the challenges I was experiencing. She has the amazing ability to see and show you the incredible little wins throughout your day that in my experience I was overlooking. These little wins are treasures that opened this wildly beautiful perspective of how amazing I truly am and we all are. This journey for me uncovered so much light that was there all along waiting for me too see even in the darkness. I cannot thank Janelle enough for helping me step into my own worth and encouraging a deeper self discovery I needed to crack open. The beautiful shift I experienced at the beginning working with Janelle seemed significant but looking back it was an understatement. My journey with Janelle opened the door to a whole new state of mind and experience that has lead me into soo many exciting revelations and continues to evolve each day. Whatever you’re going through and no matter what you need Janelle will be there to guide, support and genuinely care and celebrate you.
Janelle is an incredible health coach. I originally felt the need to seek her advice thinking I would get some health tips and drop a few pounds. However, the experience with Janelle turned into much more. She has a kind and gentle way of supporting and encouraging while cheering your successes and breakthroughs along the way. Throughout our chats I became more aware of how intertwined my mental, spiritual and physical health all are. I ended up changing some of my goals halfway through to incorporate working on myself inside and out. With her help and guidance I felt myself changing and was able to prioritize what is most important to my growth and overall health. Thank you Janelle!
I am so fortunate to have found Janelle and our yoga community at The Studio at NBX at a very difficult time in my life. Janelle has a way of fostering my healing and growth not only physically but mentally, emotionally and spiritually. She has an uncanny way of hitting home with her readings or thoughts for the day that truly speak to me in such a way that sometime I think she has been reading my mind.
Her gentle and soothing manner makes my yoga experience a safe and restorative start to my hectic and harried day. I carry her peace filled practice with me through out my day. I am a much better Mom, Boss, sister, and friend when I start my day with Janelle’s class.
Her simple but practical corrections have improved my practice and postures that over the years I thought I was holding correctly. Clearly even after practicing yoga for a number of years there is always room for change and improvement. Janelle’s adjustments resonate with me and have helped my practice flourish to another level.
I am blessed to have her as an instructor in my life.
Janelle is awesome in every way a yoga teacher can be awesome! She has a style of teaching that is natural and authentic. She beautifully balances the strength of a strong power flow with emphasis on finding breath and ease. I always leave Janelle’s classes feeling equally energized and blissed out!
Special Events & Programs
Wellness Program Coordinator // Health Coaching for a local hospital
I have worked with Janelle over the past year on developing and implementing a Wellness program for a very challenging population. Janelle has been great to work with. She has always been professional and prompt. But what makes Janelle so good at helping others make positive changes in their lives is – she walks the talk and leads by example.
You cannot help but be drawn to her joyful, optimistic spirit!
Principal, NPMS // Yoga for students
Before we worked with Janelle we came up against obstacles that complicated our objective which was to give students a dedicated yoga day in a dedicated yoga space – we wanted this to feel different from school yet be at school. Other yoga practitioners and studios were interested in the focus of teaching teachers to infuse yoga into their classroom practices and protocols. Our objective was to allow that to naturally happen as teachers and students practiced together over an eight week period, and it did.
First it was her enthusiasm and appreciation of our intention to help support desuetude’s social and emotional well being, development, and awareness through yoga, but when I witnessed her energy and calm and how it resonated with our middle school students, I knew this partnership was symbiotic.
To have 11 year old children coming into school and excited that it’s “yoga” day and then report back to me what they did and how they felt, is exactly what I had hoped for in our program. We have planted seeds and signaled to the school community and families that this matters because we are dedicated time and resources to it and moreso because it benefits the emotional well being of our kids.
Her open heart and mind allowed us to create a program that was simple and accessible to children.
Speaking engagement, URI Alumni Association
The URI Alumni Association was fortunate to have Janelle as a featured speaker for the 2019 Women’s Council Spring Symposium. Her presentation on health and well-being was informative. engaging, and resonated with the audience. She shared practical tips and suggestions for “living well” that everyone can apply to their every day life. Our students and attendees were raving about her for weeks after the presentation. I would recommend Janelle as a professional speaker to any organization!
