First of all, TURYA YOGA  is much more than just physical exercise, it is a transformational practice which integrates body, mind, and spirit. Body & Breath awareness combined with Inner Focus & Concentration leads to Absorption: the 3-stage approach of Kripalu. You are guided to move at your own pace, to honor your body’s needs and to listen to your body’s wisdom by getting in touch with your inner teacher. A definite emphasis is put on coordinating your breathing with all your movements. Gentle stretches, classic yoga postures, deep relaxation practices, mantras, and meditation techniques nudge your attention on inner sensations, thoughts, and emotions. Energy blockages free themselves and long-held tensions dissolve.

As a result, the multiple benefits of a TURYA YOGA class are:

  • Body: Stretch & tone muscles, release chronic tension, improve circulation, energizes and refresh
  • Mind: Calm restless thoughts, cultivate concentration, support mental clarity and confidence, promote self-awareness
  • Spirit: Encourage self-acceptance, honor inner wisdom, invite deep stillness, connect you to your Soul

DURATION: 90 minutes

CLASSES: Yoga Nidra for Inner Peace

Yoga Nidra is an ancient form of meditation, a non-mental experience easy to learn and to practice. It is an exceptional fountain of youth often called “yogic sleep” though you remain aware and alert all through.

In that peaceful twilight zone, you reconnect with an unlimited source of wisdom which provides the exact solution to various issues and problems you face in your daily life.

By witnessing and not resisting, you uncover core negative beliefs and habit patterns so you can discover the truth within. While deeply relaxing your body and mind, this practice allows you to resolve personal and interpersonal problems. It is an amazing tool to release and even eliminate chronic stress by giving you a deep sense of wholeness and security. It harmonizes your actions, thoughts, and deeds with the people around you and with life in general. This is a real gift of inner peace. It teaches you how to live in the Now It is pure Self-love in action!

Benefits: Deep relaxation for body/mind; problem resolution; a deep sense of wholeness and safety; and learning how to live in the present.

DURATION: 90 minutes

Janine and her Yoga group in Escazu


Time to exercise your soul’s muscles & listen to your soul messages! Every problem, difficulty, issue of health, money or relationship comes from a degree of disconnection with your soul essence. This state of un-ease within your soul leads to a misuse of energy, the source of your dis-ease. There is a place within your own consciousness in which you have denied the flow of love to enter – it results in a place in your body where the flow of energy is also denied. Soul Surrender is a simple and swift dive into your cellular memory to search & pull out the root cause of your problems. Allowing your soul to speak to you has the effect to reestablish new coherent energy pathways, the new level of resonance within your cells and a higher level of harmony within your whole BEING.

Your soul is in no need of healing or salvation but re-connecting with your soul releases all healing powers within you. Combined with EFT (see EFT Workshop), it provides fast breakthroughs in your physical, emotional and mental bodies. Soul Surrender goes beyond regression or hypnosis and creates a leap in consciousness which immediately infuses more peace and more happiness within yourself. Your Soul can cure all ills!

DURATION: 60 minutes to 3 hours. Please call to schedule an appointment for a private session with Janine.

WORKSHOP: Discover EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)

EFT is a gentle but effective healing & energy balancing technique which can easily be learned by everybody. Science is proving more and more that unresolved negative emotions are major contributors to most physical pains & diseases.

EFT assumes that the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system. Focused thought, combined with gentle fingertip tapping of key acupuncture points, clears energy block along the body’s meridians and quickly realigns them.

Tapping while concentrating on physical symptoms or past traumas can also dissolve emotional issues at a deep enough level that a physiological shift occurs & physical healing results. Encouraging case reports from thousands of people all over the world – may it be about a painful sprain, a migraine, a phobia, an allergy, a chronic condition or also any other illness keep pouring in. Furthermore, properly applied, EFT has often shown complete removal of symptoms or immediate immense improvement.
