About Janet


Janet Pietrangelo, BA, B.Ed, RAC, Certified IyengarYoga Teacher & Studio Director

Janet is devoted to integrating spirituality into the practice of yoga.  In her teachings, she provides support to every student, with an emphasis on cultivating a healthy relationship based on respect, faith and trust.  Her ultimate goal is to offer ongoing assistance and to aid each student along their personal & professional paths.

Janet began practicing yoga in 1997 after moving to a tiny village of 600 people in Stoney Point Ontario. She started teaching yoga in 2007 and found the Iyengar method in 2013. Her first Iyengar Teacher was (and still is today) Karen Major. Janet was originally inspired by the precision, depth and adaptability of the Iyengar method.  It challenged her on every level, which was both humbling and exciting. She believes that individuals of all ages, levels of ability, and body types can learn and profoundly benefit from the practice of Iyengar Yoga. In 2015 Janet became an apprentice teacher of the 3-year Iyengar Yoga Teacher Training Program under the guidance of Karen Major of London. Janet received her National Certification in November 2018.

She is also a Certified Reflexologist & Reiki Practitioner. Janet scouted her location as a diamond in the rough and 20 years later it shines as a retreat centre and sanctuary, a place to work out your body, relax your mind and rejuvenate your spirit.
