Janina Edwards (E-RYT 200, RYT-300, YACEP) is a certified Classical Yoga Teacher, as well as a Level II Restorative Yoga teacher, in Judith Lasater’s Relax & Renew Style. In addition to teaching Restorative in Atlanta, she has assisted Ms. Lasater with Level I training.
She has taught meditation and active yoga styles, such as Classical and Kali Natha Yoga, since 2011—including LA Fitness (Northlake, Stone Mountain and Ansley Mall) for 5 years. Her empathy for people living with difficult challenges spurred her to teach yoga for the Partnership Against Domestic Violence women’s shelter, and at the DeKalb County Jail Women’s Section. As a result of her commitment to that work, she received a Yoga Alliance Scholarship in 2015, to complete her 300-hour certification.
Janina is a Bhakti yogi, and is inspired to bring yoga/union to people via joyful experiences with music/kirtan and nature. She is a Kashi kirtan wallah (singer), and plays harmonium and violin. She also leads meditation walks in nature.
She is a member of the Black Yoga Teachers Association (BYTA) and Kashi’s Black Yoga Teachers Collective.
