My name is Joanna and I'm a yoga teacher, a yoga studio manager, and a holistic health coach.
Teaching yoga, studying yoga, working on my art, meeting new people, discovering new music, exploring the city and hanging with my puppy 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 non-stop, didn't get enough sleep, didn't eat right and it was at this time when my digestive issues got severe and I hit rock bottom. I went to several specialists that provided little helpful information and no diagnosis. I felt lost and alone. Something had to change. So I made the difficult decision to step away from that lifestyle and focus on taking care of my body and my mind.
It was in my daily yoga practice where I began to observe from within, separate myself from the outside world, to stop to listen to my body and follow my heart.
Through the guidance and support of my teachers and my own health coach who specialized in digestive wellness, I gained a deeper understanding and awareness of the importance of physical and spiritual health. This commitment to personal growth lead me on my own journey where I turned my passion into my life’s work. I enrolled in The Institute for Integrative Nutrition to continue on my own path to healing and help others do the same.
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.
