Yoga found Joanne at a time when her body needed to heal after stressful years of raising two children with disabilities and directing two startup non-profit organizations. Her yoga journey landed her at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Massachusetts where she completed a KYT200 certification. She received her 300-hour advanced teacher certification in Bali with Jovinna Chan and Grace Jull. She has also trained over 100 hours with Joshua Sommers and Sarah Powers (Yin Yoga). Joanne holds space for students to deepen mind body experiences, cultivate inner wisdom, and restore balance. She has been a teacher of restorative, meditation, vinyasa, and yin practices teaching at all levels: gentle, moderate, and core yoga with over 1000 hours of instruction. Joanne offers safe and clear instruction. She holds a certificate in Positive Psychology from Whole Being Institute (CiPP) and a Master’s degree in Business Management (MIM).
