Janine Schaefer


Janine is a yogini and dancer. Her journey started as an engineer in a cold german office stuck in a job she didn’t like, and a body with many health issues. It was her yoga and meditation practice that opened the door towards her inner universe. She started to recognise how intelligent and powerful the body actually is and how much is possible just by using the breath, movement, imagination, and a change of diet. So she started her own healing journey.

Integrating a diet free from gluten, sugar and processed food into her life was a game changer. Through movement, meditations, and constantly listening to her body she was able to heal naturally. Over time she realised that the only thing she needs to find her path of life is to listen to her heart. This is how she ended up leaving Germany to start living in Costa Rica happily sharing the powerful tools she developed during her journey.

The realization that everyone carries this love and ability to create abundance made her find her purpose. Today she is part of the non-profit organization called “We The Medicine“. This organization has the core aim to educate and empower people to remember their very own healing potential. Alongside traditional healing therapy methods, the offerings include breath-work, movement medicine, yoga, meditation, sound healing, havening technique, and much more.

Janine loves teaching the ancient knowledge that brought so much love and light into her own life to others. To see her students awaken their power and create the life they desire always fills her heart with joy and love.

She is trained 200 hours in Kundalini and Hatha Yoga as well as 200 hours in Vinyasa Flow. In addition she has completed a 30 hours Thai Massage course. She teaches public and private healing movement, meditation and yoga classes, mindset workshops and offers Reiki sessions.

Janine’s Teaching Philosophy

Janine is convinced that everyone is born with a beautiful and intelligent body that is able to heal itself. We only have to remember how powerful and intelligent our body is and to learn how to put ourselves in the right environment of healing. This is why Janine is so passionate about bringing this remembrance back to the people. She loves teaching different kinds of classes and workshops, sharing tools and giving new approaches of thinking with the goal to awaken the forgotten abilities inside her students.

She teaches directly out of her heart finding the right words to reach her students. The content she delivers within her classes and workshops are deeply integrated in her own lifestyle. This is why her teachings are very authentic.

She welcomes everyone with an open heart and a smile. She gives detailed explanations and adaptations for postures to make sure everyone can follow her class. For her the highest priority is to hold space filled with good energy so every student feels held, supported and safe. This is the foundation to open the heart and meet yourself exactly where you are. From this point the beautiful journey back home to yourself can start.


The Power of Letting Go

The mind and body is like a house in which the soul lives. And this house needs to be cleared from time to time. You can compare it to the space you live in. Imagine how good you feel after you have just cleaned it. The same happens to the body and mind.

Letting go of energies, thoughts and old beliefs is the foundation of new beginnings.

In this workshop you will learn a very powerful way to effectively let go of what is holding you back from living a life full of abundance. We are going to use the body, imagination, breath and the element of fire to support us making the way free for a future full of light and love. Are you ready to leave some weight behind?

The workshop is 60 minutes. Price is $40.

Healing Movements

You love music? You love to move? You are ready to let yourself fall into the rhythm of the present moment? So this is your workshop! You will be guided through a journey of exploring your body with your own movements leading into an ecstatic dance party. Dancing without limitations and the need to look pretty is self healing in its highest form. This is your chance to move like your body wants to express in a total safe space. There is nothing that needs to be hidden. Together we are going to create the blissful feeling of total freedom and connectedness in every cell of the body.

The workshop is 120 minutes. Price is $30.

Attracting Abundance

Our outside world always mirrors our inside world. When we think about abundance and love we will attract exactly this into our life. As human beings we have the unique ability and power to create everything we want just by using our imagination.

In this workshop you will learn how to create affirmations that really work and how to manifest effectively. We are going to connect to our inner place of love and imagination. We will work with the ancient spirit of the forest to support the process of making our wishes come true. The first piece of pure love will come back to you directly in this workshop. This is a promise! Are you ready to receive?

The workshop is 90 minutes. Price is $40.
