Joann has 3 teenagers and enjoys foraging in the woods, paddling, and anything in the snow and cold (including yoga)! In her words, “Yoga is my path for growing myself up. By cultivating awareness, acceptance, and aligned action, I am better able to care for my heart, body, and mind and I aim to share these gifts in my teaching. When I first began yoga in my 20s it was for the challenging movement practice and included some weird breathing. Although I thought yoga was exercise, I now see how incredibly diverse, healing, and accessible yoga can be.”

Joann has been teaching yoga since 2016 and completed 500 hours of study in Ashaya yoga. Joann began with Sangha Studio recently, in the Fall of 2022 teaching Sunday mornings and offering workshops. She was very exciting to be welcomed into a studio that was so well aligned her own business offerings in trauma healing and yoga as well as her Pay from the Heart pricing and donation based classes. The biggest draw? Sangha has created a wonderful, heart opening community that is inclusive and aware of the environment required to offer yoga for all bodies, and all bodies come as they are and are met with care and kindness. "No one in the area does it better!"
