Yoga Behind Bars

Janaye Williams

Janaye started practicing yoga in 2010 during her senior year of college. She was initially drawn to the physical practice of yoga to help relieve stress, but quickly noticed how yoga began to transform her body, mind and eventually - her way of life. Janaye moved to Nashville, TN from her hometown of St. Louis, MO in 2015 and quickly found a home practicing yoga at Shakti Power Yoga. With the intention of sharing the transformative powers of yoga with others, Janaye completed her 200-hr teacher training through Shakti's emPower School of Yoga in 2016 under her teachers, Kelly Farina Carter, Lauren Farina and Elizabeth Porter Veyhl. Janaye's passion lies in empowering students to transform their lives through yoga. It's her intention in class to challenge student’s physical limits, while also cultivating an environment of gratitude and self-love. Connect with Janaye on IG: @janayewilliams
