Joanne offers “Embodied Coaching” to students who are looking for a yoga practice created just for them. Her philosophy as a yoga teacher is to help people feel connected to their bodies, quiet their mind, stimulate a healthy nervous system, and release tension in the body caused by stress, anxiety, or trauma. In working with private clients, she and the student have an initial meeting, so that she can tailor a plan for them so they leave her with a strong and confident foundation upon which to build their practice. She gives practical, accessible homework for the student, because she believes that the techniques she teaches require practicing on their own as well as when they are with her. After the initial meeting, they will meet weekly or bi-weekly where they will discuss the progress of the student, any challenges they are facing, as well as practice together.
Her teaching style uses a combination of breath work, meditation, mindfulness practices, restorative and gentle asanas, somatic movement and neurogenic tremoring. She specializes in working with people who have chronic pain, stress, childhood trauma, sexual trauma, PTSD, and anxiety. She can meet in person or via Skype.

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.” –Suzanne
“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.” –Vanessa
