Janine Tandy biography

Janine Tandy grew up with sports and outdoor activities being a huge part of her life. In 2001, she re-focused herself lifestyle and physical well-being after a sports injury and health issues, realizing that she needed something more than just a physical workout, something that provided a more holistic experience. She attended her first yoga class at this time and had the “Ah ha” moment. Since then, Janine has spent the past 17 years developing her personal practice and teaching through daily asana, pranayama, meditation practice and continuing study. She feels deeply blessed to have met her Vinyasa teachers whom she trained under, Jude English and Isaac Pena 13 years ago, and studied with them through their Sankalpah Teacher Training, many focused workshops, and regular practice. Through their guidance and support, she has developed a deep understanding of sequencing and focused alignment while incorporating breath work and meditation.  She continues to develop many aspects of her teaching, both stillness and movement, now in the UK

Janine has broadened and complimented her yoga study by enrolling in Sarah Power’s 500 hr Insight Yoga teacher to explore the areas of depth psychology, meditation and yin study. She also holds a Level 1 Therapeutic Yoga teacher certification with Cheri Clampett and Arturo Peal and she is a certified Level 1 and 11 yin yoga teacher. The blend of several yoga practices, nutrition and coaching experience provides Janine with a well-rounded philosophy to well-being and health maintenance. 

I am passionate about bringing this integrated approach to health and well-being to clients in order to provide life-long tools and practices that manifest a balance and contentment.

Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa yoga is a dynamic, muscular movement practice that uses a progressive sequencing style to create awareness, flexibility, strength and space within the body. There is a strong commitment to breathe initiated movement with a pace that allows for embodiment of the poses and transitional shapes. This practice takes into consideration we are all unique and will express each posture and transition in  the practice that is suitable to both the current physical and emotional needs of the practitioner.

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is a method of yoga that incorporates long-held passive postures to nourish the body by stimulating chi/energy flow to joints, connective tissue and bone. These deeper layers of body become more fluid and pliable when addressed in a stillness orientated manner. Yin practice blends Chinese Meridian Theory with yoga postures so that the sequencing of a class is oriented to allow for a smooth flow of energy in the subtle body or energy meridians to create harmony, alleviate blockages or stagnation. This practice is transformative in creating balance in our emotional, psychological and physical realms in an encouraging, and nourishing manner.

Janine is the antidote to today’s modern lifestyle. Through her guidance, I have managed to enjoy quietness of mind through both her yang and yin practices. Her transitions are beautiful and her words help you stay connected in the moment and asana. She has not only brought my practice to the next level, but the benefits extend far beyond the studio. Thank you for keeping me grounded in the present and for helping me be more kind to myself.
