Janet Archer, MA.
Certified Master Life Coach, Wellness and Relaxation Coach, Integrative Yoga Therapist, and Mindfulness Meditation Teacher.
Janet began working in the fitness industry teaching of aerobics 35 years ago when she owned the Body Barn, a dance exercise studio. She realized that being physically fit was only one component of being well, so she continued her training to become a Yoga teacher/therapist and to earn her Master's degree in Psychology with a Focus on Yoga-Body Mind Health. Through personal experience with postpartum depression, she found the value of a meditation and mindfulness practice in calming and relaxing her body and mind and went on to intern at the University of Massachusetts Stress Reduction Clinic with Jon Kabat-Zin.
Through teaching hundreds of yoga, meditation and stress reduction classes and private sessions over the years, Janet came to realize the enormous power that self-compassion and humor can play in our lives.
She brings this powerful combination into her work along with a gift for deep listening and soft acceptance that encourages many people to move beyond what they thought was previously possible.
In 2011 Janet became a Certified Life Coach through the Life Coach School, where she has fine-tuned her skills to assist others in discovering their own unique path to wellness and self-worth.
