Janice Chiou is a former attorney who converted to yoga once she realized that her happiest, most peaceful moments were on the mat. She then embarked on an adventure to try and bring more and more of that happiness and peace into the rest of her life, which included a major career change and a lot of yoga philosophy. Janice believes that everybody should practice yoga, not because everybody needs to stand on their heads, but because everyone could benefit from a little more happiness and peace in their lives. To that end, her classes are physically challenging, alignment-oriented, encouraging, and playful, with the goal that her students leave class feeling lighter, brighter, and more harmonious. Janice, a lululemon community "ambassador," is a 500 hr RYT through YogaWorks Los Angeles, and she thanks her incredible teachers Joan Hyman, Chad Hamrin, and Jorgen Christiansson for shaping her practice and her life.
