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 non-stop, high stress job, didn't get enough sleep, didn't eat well and it was at this time when my health issues got severe and I hit rock bottom. I went to several specialists that provided little helpful information and no diagnosis and I was left feeling I felt lost and alone. Something had to change. So I made the difficult decision to step away from that lifestyle, leave New York and focus on taking care of me - my body and my 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 my own holistic health coach, I paved a new path to healing. This journey helped me gain a deeper understanding and awareness of the importance of physical and spiritual health. I believe in a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means looking at how all areas of your life are connected. Living a healthy life is not just about the food you put into your mouth or the ; it is about how you feed your body, mind and soul on a daily basis. This commitment to personal growth lead me on my own 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 has become the wisest part of my heart and my intention is to share it with as many people as possible while I am here on this earth.
