meet janine

Janine Leagh has been evolving through movement practices and principles for over 30yrs. Initially she was an elite athlete and coach, and would push her body hard to gain competitive results. The end result however, was a greatly injured and over stressed body-mind.


As in all qualities of nature, the organism seeks to balance itself and what followed were years of ’un-doing’ and re-patterning through yoga science research and the embodiment of asana with living philosophy. She began her journey of returning to Self.

Janine founded HYA Yoga Studios & Training Academy in Australia in 2012 and has been practicing and teaching yoga since 1997. She  shares her wisdom of embodied learnings, and facilitates the students' own body-mind awakening through their direct experience... a powerful practice both on and off the mat. Today, she travels internationally offering students around the world the opportunity to delve deeper into their own body wisdom through an integrated approach of physical, emotional and mental balancing. 

She is especially interested in the body-mind and living from the integrated Sacred Heart. This has  brought about healing qualities and an ability to transverse realms of consciousness between physical, emotional and mental patterns. Transmitting source energy can support innate healing and a remembrance/ return to wholeness.

With a great passion for functional human movement, Janine has practiced yoga for over 23yrs as well as an avid climber, kitesurfer and freestyle mover, she has taught over 15,000 hours of yoga around the world.                                       


Janine is a 500hr Teacher Training Master Facilitator and draws from the following in her offerings:

More than 2000hrs of Yoga Training including Yin Yoga with Paul Grilley, Level 3 Power Vinyasa Baron Baptiste, 1000hrs of Embodied Flow and Somatic Movement with Tara Judelle and Dr Scott Lyons, Tantric Philosophy with Carlos Pomeda, Sally Kempton and Christopher Wallis, 1000hrs of Traditional Yoga studies with Georg  Fueurstein, Anasara with John Friend and ParaYoga Nidra with Rod Stryker.

private healing sessions

Janine is a gifted, intuitive healer. She supports and facilitates the somatic healing process through inner dialogue and focusing work together with energy and chakra balancing, reiki, hands on healing, fascial release, cranial-sacral therapy, body mind centring, breath work and much more. 


She is able to bring herself into a place to channel the highest vibration of divine, unconditional love and can bring this through her hands to the recipient in contact work, or can allow the vibration to permeate the room while working with dialogue.

She is skilled in guiding a recipient into their own body-mind and tuning into listening to the needs and requirements for healing to occur, as well as when the body has experienced enough for one session. 

Every session will be different, as every person is different. If you are ready to experience incredible, deep healing, then book a session below. If you have questions, or would like more information, please contact Janine below.


yoga teacher training


This Internationally accredited 200hr Teacher Training Program will immerse you into the foundational aspects of all that Yoga is.  Janine specialises in advanced methods of facilitation so that you, the student, are able to embody and 'upload' experiences and materials for rapid and integrated learning. 


You will be introduced to the history of yoga with intense personal development to prepare you, the student, for the role as teacher.


The course focuses on an in-depth understanding of the anatomy and physiology of yoga postures, hands-on assisting, understanding sequence structure and counter-pose, yoga physiology, and living philosophy. The focus and point of difference in Janine's delivery is that the emphasis is on your experiential and embodied learning. The Truth of Yoga can ultimately only be felt as an individuals experience. This is the realisation process that we live and model in the 200hr program and for life.


We guide you in the development of a sadhana practice including meditation, kriyas, and pranayama. We also take a brief look at the energy body, holding space for healing, develop non-violent communication and invitational language for trauma sensitive classes and so much more.
The course is lead by Janine Leagh, Master facilitator, and will be assisted by Senior Yoga teachers and guest faculty for impactful learning. All facilitators will present in the subject matter to which they are experts in their field of study, e.g. yoga philosophy, anatomy & physiology, etc.


This is a deep dive into the world of yoga, and a course that delivers the foundation for a lifetime of experiences.

You are magic Janine, perfectly imperfect, quirky and kind, authentic and relatable, fiery and fluid, just all of it wrapped up in a beautiful human being. 

I know you said maybe you should renovate houses, and I mean I can only imagine you’d be great at doing that too, but please don’t ever stop renovating souls and lives.

Thank you so so very much for that limiting core beliefs weekend and both the exercise we did and the chat about body image we had. I’ve had so much pain and confusion around all of that stuff.

I’ve always felt so frustrated by not understanding why I struggled so much to step outside my comfort zone in travel or adventure when I remember once being so courageous, independent and fearless.  I truly felt like you took my inner child that day in your hands and gave her a little torch to use in the darkness.


I feel like you showed me the seeds that had been planted about not being safe or loved and that at anytime I can plant new ones, and I can feed those seeds with my words and my actions to make them outgrow the not so helpful ones. 

It’s been the most freeing experience I have ever felt. I love myself more than I think I ever have in my entire life. And what a priceless gift that is. Wherever I go and whatever I do, I will always hold your magic soul in my heart.
