Postnatal yoga

Janiece Collopy

Janiece’s love for yoga sparked in high school when she and her mom tried a yoga studio by their home. Immediately she fell in love with its calming and restoring nature, and carried her practice through college and into adulthood. Yoga has played a huge role in helping her manage stress and anxiety. It continues to be a reminder to be immersed and grounded in the present moment. Her style primarily gravitates towards a gentle, yin style, and over the years she has developed a deep appreciation of practicing meditation and mindfulness.

In 2016 she began working as a birth and postpartum doula and soon blended her birth work with yoga by completing a Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training through Synergy Yoga in Seattle. She is excited to bring her knowledge of birth into her yoga teaching. So many of the techniques she has learned through yoga are highly applicable in aiding labor and postpartum period. Though birth is a large focus of hers, she believes yoga can benefit everyone in any stage of life and enjoys teaching all ages. Her classes are light-hearted, and encourage an environment of self-love, kindness and respect. You can find her website at www.sukhabirth.com.
