Janine is the owner of Tranquil Flame Yoga and Wellness based in Revere, MA. As a licensed physical therapist (McGill University, 1983), Reiki practitioner, certified Shake Your Soul dance teacher and certified fitness trainer, she augments her yoga classes with aspects of therapy, healing, and fitness for an integrated experience.
She began her own yoga practice in 1992 and then participated in a yoga teacher training program led by yoga and meditation teacher, Sarah Powers, in California (2000). Janine regularly enhances her practice with workshops, retreats and inner work. She teaches both yin and yang styles of yoga, various movement classes and meditation.
Since the early 2000’s, Janine has studied with and been deeply influenced by teachers of the Tibetan Buddhist lineage – Lama Willa Miller, Brendan Kennedy, Lama John Makransky, Lama Elizabeth Monson, Anam Thubten, Charles Genoud, Pema Chodron and Lama Surya Das – as well as Buddhist psychologists Tara Brach, Jack Kornfield, Bill and Susan Morgan, John and Jennifer Welwood.
She is committed to the path of healing and transformation in her own life and helps others through her classes, workshops, retreats, Reiki and private sessions. Janine also volunteers teaching meditation classes at the Suffolk County House of Corrections.
