Janice Baxter has loved horses since her first memory of a horse-drawn milk wagon as a toddler. She has loved Yoga since her first Integral Hatha class in 1971 and began teaching in 1972. Her studies and licensing in massage therapy have inspired her to apply anatomy and physiology principles to Yoga and riding. It is her intention to inspire equestrians to practice Yoga and yogis to ride horses - for life!
