My name is Joanna and i'm a yoga teacher, a yoga studio manager, an artist, a dog mom and a heart full of LOVE.
Teaching yoga, studying yoga, managing a yoga studio, working on my art, meeting new people, exploring the city, and hanging with my pup Charlotte, keep me very busy and loving life. I am here is to share my knowledge and experiences with you and to offer you my guidance and support to help lead you on a positive path to optimal health in all aspects of life - body, mind and spirit.
A little about what lead me to where I am today. After college, I lived in New York City and worked in the fashion industry for over 5 years. I was always on-the-go and found my mind and my body over-worked and extremely stressed. I worked a very fast-paced and demanding job, didn't get enough sleep and didn't eat well. It was at this time when my health issues got severe. I went to several specialists that provided little helpful information and I was left feeling I felt lost and alone. Something had to change. So I made the difficult decision to step away from my life, leave New York and focus on taking care of ME - body and mind.
It was in my daily yoga practice where I began to slow down, observe from within, separate myself from the outside world and to listen to my body.
Through the guidance and support of my teachers, my family and friends, and my own holistic health coach, I began to slowly pave a new path to healing. This journey, which continues to this day, has helped me gain a deeper understanding and awareness of the importance of physical, mental and spiritual health. I now whole-heartedly believe in and take a holistic approach to my health and wellness. I know now that living a healthy life is not just about the food you put into your mouth, but it is about how you feed your body, mind and soul on a daily basis. This commitment to my own personal growth lead me on my journey where I turned my passion into my life’s work.
I am where I am today because of the ongoing support and inspiration from all of the people who make my life abundant - my loving family, my soul sisters, my incredible mentors, teachers and students, and all of my fellow yogis and friends. The people who encourage me. push me. inspire me. support me. challenge me. heal me. and love me. This love is wisest part of my heart and my intention is to share it with as many people as I can while I am here on this earth.
