Joanne's motto is, "Yoga is for everybody and every body".
Joanne hails from Ohio, , but has traveled and lived all over the world, including Alaska, India, Europe and China. Wherever she goes, Yoga is a faithful companion.
Most recently, she has spent over five years living in India teaching and training students from all over the world for their 200 and 300 Hour Yoga Alliance certification. She has helped co-ordinate and teach in over twenty five YTTC's.
She continues to study and learn at every opportunity possible, building upon her E-RYT 500, RPYT and RCYT certifications; accruing over 4,700 teaching hours and 1,700 hours of training. Joanne has also written three Yoga asana manuals to aid students in their certification process. She proudly became a Registered Yoga School with Yoga Alliance in 2015.
She enjoys both being a long-time student of Yoga and also sharing the many physical, mental and spiritual benefits of Yoga as a teacher. She started teaching in Alaska over 11 years ago, under the guidance of amazing teachers and mentors that instilled in her a heartfelt practice, free from competition and judgement.
She is grateful to be offering more private yoga lessons to individuals of all levels, while continuing to teach Yoga Wellness Retreats and Yoga Teacher Trainings; creating a supportive and transformative environment for all.
