Janaye Williams


Janaye started practicing yoga in 2010 during her senior year of college. She was initially drawn to the physical practice of yoga to help relieve stress, but quickly noticed how yoga began to transform her body, mind and eventually - her way of life.

Janaye moved to Nashville, TN from her hometown of St. Louis, MO in 2015 and quickly found a home at Shakti Power Yoga. With the intention of sharing the transformative powers of yoga with others, Janaye completed her 200-hr teacher training through Shakti's emPower School of Yoga in 2016 under her teachers, Kelly Farina Carter, Lauren Farina and Elizabeth Porter Veyhl.

Janaye's passion lies in empowering students to transform their lives through yoga. It's her intention in class to challenge students physical limits, while also cultivating an environment of gratitude and self love. In addition to teaching at Shakti Power Yoga, Janaye is also apart of Shakti's Assist Team and loves to use the power of physical touch to help students deepen their practice. When Janaye isn't teaching or assisting you can find her at Hattie B.'s, her favorite place to eat, or hanging out around her neighborhood in East Nashville.
