With a background in biochemistry, physiology, and development studies, JoAnna’s approach to yoga is one that honors the individual needs of the body and empowers people to take health back into their own hands. JoAnna has studied yoga since 2010, finally steeping herself in teaching traditions in 2015 after providing yoga classes to marginalized communities abroad.

By combining playful and creative asanas, accessible meditations, and intentional pranayama, JoAnna’s classes provide an opportunity to explore the depths of self and our engagement with the world beyond ourselves. “Yoga is a way to focus within, and by doing so, expand our awareness, bringing increased responsibility to live in alignment with the men and women we came here to be.”
