In 2009, after a near-fatal fall through a bridge, Amit Janco (RYT-200, India), an author, artist and recovered lawyer, found healing and relief from chronic pain through restorative yoga. Since then, she turned to Iyengar yoga (renowned for its medical and post-injury benefits) and developed a regular practice that combines Iyengar, Hatha and Restorative poses (asana), meditation and breathing (pranayama).
Through her healing and yoga journey, Amit has found greater peace – and more space for her breath. She encourages people who are new to yoga to experiment on the mat, with gentle self-compassion – and lots of props! Because of her physical limitations (from injuries sustained in the accident), and from dealing with trauma, Amit can empathize with students whose physical or emotional resilience is rarely acknowledged nor readily apparent.
Amit is deeply grateful for all the guidance she has received from her many yoga teachers around the globe. In her decade-long search for optimal health and well-being, she has also trained in Narrative Therapy (Australia) and Reiki (Canada).
Whether through individual instruction or small group sessions, Amit’s guiding principle is to support students through a practice that weaves together strength, alignment, awareness and self-compassion. She is passionate about sharing with people the delights of a regular practice, while also empowering more people to uncover and experience the benefits of yoga for their own well-being. Amit hopes that this practice will bring a greater sense of calm & community during times of uncertainty and isolation.
Amit has a serious yen for nature, slow travel, walking meditation, cinema and the occasional flat white.
