About Janis (spiritual name Fatehjeet Kaur)

I have been practicing yoga on and off the mat for the last two decades. As a certified Kundalini Yoga teacher, I guide students through a challenging and set of exercises (called a kriya) designed to get specific results. A Certified Professional Co-Active Life Coach, I mentor yoga students and teachers to have wisdom in their actions and faith in their merits. Since 2015 I have been volunteering in India with a home for at-risk children, and in Greece with refugees. A firm believer that yoga can make you happier, healthier, and more present in your life, I experienced it’s magic directly through a divorce and later with a health crisis. I am grateful to my teachers and for this ancient practice. Join me in class for an experience you won’t soon forget.

A Certified Professional Co-Active Coach with the famed Coaches Training Institute, my background includes an MBA from Yale University and a BA from Boston College. I have been a Yoga Alliance Certified Yoga Teacher. since 2002

Previous work experience includes 1.5 years at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Lenox, MA; the largest residential yoga center in North America.  I also ran a low-income senior housing facility for seniors, worked at a university, and consult to a variety of clients.  I volunteered at a rape crisis center, a homeless facility for families, and served as a girl scout leader.

In addition to gratitude for my coach Shantipriya, I am grateful for my family and all my yoga teachers.  I studied Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training Level 1 in Peterborough, NH with Hari Kirin Kaur Khalsa, Snatam Kaur, Khalsa Ajeet Kaur Khalsa, and Sopurkh Singh Khalsa.  I completed Level 2 Kundalini Teacher training with Hari Kirin Kaur Khalsa and Gurucharan Singh Khalsa on Mind and Meditation.
