Yoga & 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 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 and workshops aimed at developing practical tools for mental clarity, balance, purpose and empowerment. This includes individual coaching, private or group yoga, and “Mindfulness in the Workplace” training for businesses, schools and community organizations.  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.

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!

After sitting with Joanna in her mindfulness class just a few times, I have been able to clarify my thoughts and tackle everyday obstacles more efficiently. Through her classes I’ve also learned simple and quick breath techniques that I use regularly to help recenter when I’m feeling overwhelmed or anxious throughout my day. I highly recommend her classes to all. Joanna is extremely knowledgeable and a very gifted teacher. She helped me realize just how effective just a few minutes of meditation and breath work can really be.
