Janine Harvath

(Yoga Instructor)

I grew up in the small town of Salmon Arm, BC. In my early twenties made the move to Kelowna enjoying a few years there and eventually settling in Vernon to raise my two wonderful daughters. As a young girl I stayed active with various sports including baseball, dance, figure skating and cross country skiing. As a young adult I was drawn mainly to the gym and enjoyed the beautiful outdoors through hiking.

Did I ever think of yoga? Absolutely not! I thought, yoga? that’s for hippies. It wasn’t until I started having babies that I discovered yoga and within a few years I had completed my yoga teacher training. I wanted to share this new passion of mine with others. I love how yoga not only strengthens the body with the poses, but the mind as well through the breathe work and mindfulness.

I have gone from turning my garage into a lovely little yoga studio to branching out in other areas of wellness taking courses in holistic massage, hot stone massage and reflexology.

Over the past year I have taught in several yoga studios in Vernon as well as gone mobile with my services offering private yoga classes and massage in client’s homes. I believe that we live in a fast-paced crazy world and we all deserve to take time out for ourselves through proper self care. I am very pleased to be a part of the Altitude team and I can’t wait t meet you on your mat!
