Hi, I'm Janet Hennard, a yoga teacher (RYT500) and certified yoga therapist (C-IAYT). In 2006, I left a long career in high tech to focus on my best job ever, teaching yoga! I have special training in yoga therapy, yin yoga, yoga anatomy, and Restorative Breathwork®. I love teaching yoga and breathwork as a way to help overcome barriers to healthy living.


Yoga has the power to change us physically, emotionally and spiritually. Using mindful breath exercises, gentle to challenging poses, and the practice of relaxation and meditation, we soon realize our power to affect not only our physical health but our overall outlook on life!


I teach group classes in all adult age groups, as well as small classes for special populations, Healing Breathwork series, kids' summer yoga, and volunteer classes by request. I offer private classes for those who may need special attention or wish to learn how to use yoga tools and breathwork to help with physical or emotional issues. 


“Yoga has been therapeutic and beneficial in keeping me centered, literally and figuratively. Our class has introduced me to fellow yogis resulting in some wonderful friendships with those who share a mutual love of yoga. Our yogini, Janet, provides a stimulating, challenging, and yet gentle yoga, that you adapt to your specific needs. I walk away feeling relaxed and renewed."

“I have been going to Bright Path Yoga classes for a few years now. They have been a huge benefit to improving my flexibility (still working on balance!). I also really enjoy the guided meditation offered. Thank you for doing these, Janet."

"Janet Hennard's Gentle Yoga is a diverse, always changing, always challenging yoga class. It is an easy entry into yoga if you are a newcomer to the practice, with a broad series of asanas, breath work, and restorative poses. Janet creates a class understanding and allowing for body differences and abilities without sacrificing personal stretch and growth.

“Janet is a wonderful yoga instructor. She is always conscious of issues a person may have and makes sure we never do anything that may hurt us. She is patient while encouraging us to push our limits without hurting our bodies."
