Janine Maila is an educator, facilitator and holistic health practitioner who specializes in women’s health. For over a decade Janine has offered workshops integrating Yin Yoga with Chinese Medicine, as well as holistic consultations combining elements of Acupressure, Chinese Medicine, Dietetics, and Flower Essences. Janine has been teaching Acupressure and Traditional Chinese Medicine at École Setsuko in Montreal for eight years. She is a core facilitator of the Feminine Rhythms program, which helps empower women in relationship with their cycles. Janine is studying Inner Relationship Focusing, which she integrates into all aspects of her work. She is currently based on Vancouver Island, B.C. where she lives with her husband.
Janine named her practice after the concept of “ayni”, something she became familiar with while studying in a Peruvian Shamanic tradition. The word “ayni” comes from the Quechua language and means reciprocity. It refers to the concept that our wellness depends on being in right relationship or integrity with ourselves, our community and with the natural world.
