Janey started practicing meditation at age 13 & TEACHES A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT STYLES to individuals and corporate groups:

Meditation Background

As many of you already know from My Story, I started practising meditation at age 13 to better cope with the stage fright I struggled with as a teenager and young adult.

Since then, I've studied breath and sound therapy in the 200h Naam Yoga Therapies program, which has given me a deeper understanding of how we can begin to balance the nervous system through breathing meditations and how sound vibrations effect our brainwaves and mood.

I've also taken the 25h Blu Matter Project "Yoga for Mental Health" course, which educated me on deeper emotional awareness through mindfulness exercises, how the brain works, as well as how to support those dealing mental illness.

Above all, one of the most powerful and consistent experiences to date has been my personal study and practise of cultivating spirituality, self awareness and developing positive neural pathways.

The spiritual connection, liberation and balance meditation and breath work have added to my life have been so profound that there's no other option for me than to start sharing this knowledge.
Thus, I've fused my 10 year background of leading hundreds of individuals and groups though fitness and yoga classes, 17 years of practising meditation, 20 years experience of public performances and the triumph of my very own stage fright to create the PERFORMANCE MINDSET PROGRAM.

Why Meditate?

  • creates a gap between stimuli and response, allowing one to step out of reaction and choose their action
  • develops deeper self awareness
  • balances the nervous system and emotions
  • improves memory and concentration
  • decreases chronic production of stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline
  • promotes restful sleeps
  • More efficient oxygen use by the body, thus more energy
  • redirects energy from the lower, survival parts of the brain brain, up to the cerebral cortex, producing new neural pathways and positive physiological responses and solution based thinking


Meditation Styles

  • Transcendental Mediation/ Chanting Mantra: used to transcend distracting or disturbing thought patterns, and redirect thought energy to promote a state of relaxed awareness
  • Kundalini: various ancient breath techniques used to provide conscious awareness of thought process, balance nervous system and improve cognitive performance
  • Creative Visualization/ Guided Meditation: involves concentration upon an image or imaginary environment, often using rich context story
  • Mindfulness: the use of one’s “impartial spectator” (3rd party awareness) to ‘be present’ and conscious of deeper mental, emotional and physical states
  • Deep Meditation (ISUL method): a state where reflection or response to stimuli and active thought processes are absent. The mind becomes “silent” and the body goes into deep relaxation in order to increase energy pathways for growth and healing.

In addition to coaching professional athletes & teaching meditation janey...

Has joined the outstanding team at “Panacea Wellness” where she delivers educational health and wellness presentations to schools and corporate groups, as well as leads life changing retreats around the world.

"Panacea Wellness was founded by two east coast ginger sisters- Cleo & Sylvie Tetrault. In the summer of 2015, they asked another East Coast girl Mischaela Richter and myself to join their team.

Cleo is a high powered ninja masseuse who takes care of all the retreat details and logistics, and who could easily bring a 7ft, 400 pound football player to tears on her massage table. She is small, but trust me- she is mighty. At the same she has a kindness in her heart that can warm up the entire room, making you feel completely safe and at ease in her care.

Mischaela is an energetic healer, who delights everyone with Reiki at our retreats and may have a natural talent at showing people just how hard they are capable of laughing. After meeting and spending time with Mischaela for 3 days, I'm pretty convinced we're part of the same family of magical mermaids. 

Sylvie is a strong, tenacious woman who inspires and motivates her clients (and me) every day. She takes care of all the nutrition and fitness classes at the retreat and has a wealth of knowledge that enchants everyone who chooses to learn from her. 

Though we look fundamentally nothing alike, we've been mistaken for sisters and even twins on more than one occasion, in more than one country. Each time this happens it's just as bizarre as the last time, but perhaps we're perceived as so similar due to the same passion, determination and courage we commit to our goals and life itself.

I'm incredibly grateful to be working with this team of like-minded, driven women, and excited for the wellness retreats and seminars we'll be hosting in 2017." - Janey
