Joanne's Public Classes


I regularly attend Joanne’s Restorative yoga classes at Breathe, where she has takes her knowledge and intuition and applies them to all that attend. Her enthusiastic, positive approach and energy, with high levels of motivation inspire her students. She is thoughtful and is able to individualize for each of her students. Her gentle approach, and supportive manner, creates a calm, healing atmosphere. Her classes are one of the things I look forward to every week.

I recently had breast cancer surgery and decided to take Joanne’s Core Release and Restore class. After class, for the first time since the surgery, I had relief from pain in the area around the surgery and I could breathe deeper than I could before the surgery. Joanne’s gentle approach was compassionate and made me feel safe.


I've been fortunate enough to take Joanne's classes, as well as work with her privately. While her knowledge of therapeutic modalities and her ability to explain how those modalities work, make her classes effective, enjoyable, and educational, I really appreciate the attention I receive as a student. I believe the connections she establishes with each student, are what really keep us all coming back.


I've had the pleasure of attending many of Joanne's yoga classes. In fact, she was my very first yoga experience. I'm so grateful that she was because her compassion and warmth were exactly what I needed. She is so aware of what each of her students may be needing and so adept at meeting them exactly where they are. She's also knows a ton but still always encourages you to listen to your own body and intuition. It was in her classes that I learned to start honoring my own experience and feelings. And what a huge gift that has been. She creates such a safe, nurturing space, which makes deep healing possible. I'll never forget the time she sat and breathed with me after a class that I got triggered in. She cares deeply about each and every student and will always go the extra mile to help them. I've got endless love and gratitude for this amazing teacher.
