Janice has been practicing Yoga since 1998 and has 2 – 200 hour certifications. Her first was from Jonathan FitzGordon from the now defunct yet great Yoga Center of Brooklyn in 2006 and  the second from The Shala in 2013.  She participated in the Shala mentorship program in 2014-15 and regularly assists in Mysore Ashtanga classes. She is very grateful to her teachers Kristin Leigh, Barbara Verrochi, Jenny Meyer, Jonathan FitzGordon and to Annie Piper (one of her first teachers)  for opening her world and mind to endless learning.  Aside from teaching at The Shala, she teaches Chair and Mat yoga to patients with  chronic pain and depression with Psychologist Wendy Barron at Gouverneur Hospital  and teaches the staff too!  She also teaches chair Yoga to seniors and makes them laugh at Pete McGuinness Senior Center in Greenpoint Brooklyn. Janice is a visual artist and also co directs an artist run gallery in Bushwick. www.janicesloane.com
