Janee R, Founder

BalanceNorth Founder, go-getter and pilates lover

With an extensive background in the health and wellbeing space, Janee established BalanceNorth to change the way people access healthcare in Australia, by providing a suite of services under one roof. Having travelled extensively overseas for work, Janee was inspired by the health and wellbeing offering overseas, and wanted to give locals access to high-quality health and movement experience close to Melbourne’s CBD. 

The inspiration behind opening BalanceNorth came from Janee’s own juggle of a career with a young family, having had three children while thriving in her corporate career at the same time. Janee realised the need to carve time out of her hectic schedule for her own mental and physical health, often heading to her favourite studio or class to move her body, connect with a friend or colleague and be part of a wider community.

Janee is also passionate about supporting the local community, evident through her hiring of local practitioners and teachers, as well as ensuring the equipment and products available for purchase at BalanceNorth are made in Australia where possible.
