Featch-ah Teach-ah: Janine Duffy

DuffyPrint-1469_copy_mediumthumb1.  Where are you from and how long have you been in Boston?

I am originally from Edwardsville, PA and have lived in Boston since 2001.

2. What was your first yoga class like?

My first yoga class in 2001 was fun and scary. I just started law school and needed something to calm me down.

3. What’s your favorite pose to teach?

My favorite pose to teach is Warrior II (Virabhadrasana II). I love this pose!

4. As a practitioner, what pose makes you cringe?

I'd have to pick two: Warrior 1 (Virabhadrasana I) and Camel (Ustrasana). 

5. Where can we find you when you’re off your mat?

You can find me taking care of my three sons: James (7), Eoin (almost 5), and Oliver (almost 2). They keep me pretty busy!

6. What drew you to teach prenatal yoga? 

I came to prenatal yoga during my pregnancy with Oliver. I realized my desire was to teach yogi mamas instead of power yoga in order to help them through the ups and downs of pregnancy.
