Joanna started yoga when she was a lawyer. She was looking for a practice to calm her mind and found it through Hot yoga. She did her first 200H-teacher training in Vinyasa Yoga in Canggu, Bali. After her teacher training, she decided to share the benefits of this practice with others. Since then, she stopped her corporate job to devote her time and energy teaching yoga. In January 2019, she enrolled for the Mentorship programme offered by Yoga Room, led by Robert Cervantes. In October 2019, to deepen her knowledge of the body, she did a yoga therapy teacher training (300 hours, with Kaya Yoga) in Ubud, Bali. During her flows, the pace of the class is punctuated by the breath (one breath, one movement) and also by the music played!

I teach each of my classes differently, depending on the style. I always focus on moving the body from where you are today. As a beginner, it’s easy to be seduced by what you see on Instagram. Everything looks perfect, and you may be made to feel that you don’t measure up. I like to bring a sense of adventure and play to the practice. A mindset of just getting in there and doing the work. Balance is always the key. Just bring your body. The mind and heart will follow.
