Mindful Living


"With realization of one's own potential and self-confidence in one's ability, one can build a better world." - Dalai Lama

Mindful Living

Hi, I'm Joanna. 

I was first introduced to Yoga and Mindful living in 2002 while studying Performing Arts in college. 
In seeking more substance to my college experience and a holistic approach to manage my stress and anxiety, I found that Yoga and Meditation brought mental clarity and acted as a gateway to personal transformation. 
These healing and mindfulness techniques forever changed the way I approached my life and path. Since then, having experienced so many benefits personally, I have dedicated myself to sharing these tools and practices with others. 

Whether you’re new to these ideas, looking for simple tools to release stress and improve focus, or would like to deepen your own practice, I offer a wide range of tools and methods to meet your goals and needs. I facilitate classes, series, seminars and workshops aimed at developing practical tools for mental clarity, balance, purpose and empowerment.  No matter who you are, I will meet you where you are. 

My philosophy is that when we are balanced in our bodies and minds, we are naturally better able to live authentically and, in turn, choose kindness and loving awareness. When we realize our worth, show up for ourselves and find this balance, we show up better for our families, friends, coworkers, and communities. 

To explore what options are best for you, let’s get in touch. In the meantime, you can learn more about my current services by clicking here.



Joanna has been leading a midday mindfulness series at my workplace, Center 615, and it has honestly made such a difference in my life and our work environment. Going into the series, I was not very familiar with mindfulness or meditation. Joanna has a way of presenting beneficial practices and techniques in such a gracious, informative and genuine way. She truly cares and takes the time to meet people where they are at, and it has had such a positive impact on me and my team!
