Learn More About Me

“A Blessing: I find myself navigating very complex issues in my life. A friend prompted me to seek counseling and not to go it alone as I have always done. Finding Inspire and working with Joanna has been very helpful. Joanna is attentive and empathetic. I look forward to our sessions and the work we are doing is helping to unravel the complexities I am facing. I could run out of superlatives describing my experience.”

therapy praise

"After years of pursuing healing, I came across an offering from Joanna. My intention for my 1:1 work with her was on the physical level, but we also explored the spiritual level. Yoga is something I thought I would never be able to enjoy, but Joanna has changed that for me by teaching and guiding me through our time together. She was very attentive to my needs and worked with me to explore the energies around and within me. I was able to bring awareness of the power within and to listen to my intuition. Thank you, Joanna, for your work and guidance to the connection of my mind, spirit, and body."
- Elizabeth, 2020 yoga client

yoga praise

"Joanna helped me find a way to relieve stress and relax when I never thought it was possible. I had taken a few yoga classes and was concerned with not knowing the poses and terminology, but Joanna made me feel so comfortable while I started my yoga practices. After a few sessions with Joanna, I was more confident in myself and my practice. Even though I am recent beginner of yoga and I entered into yoga the objective of losing weight, thanks to Joanna, it has completely transformed into being something entirely different for me. I didn’t even think that a series of movements could have any impact on my body, relaxation and peace of mind."

yoga praise

"Joanna brings integrity, empathy and warmth to each class she leads. She is a teacher who lives her yoga, moving through life with kindness, connection, and awareness, and generously sharing those seeds of wholeness and joy with her students. A wonderful representation of yin and yang herself, she can guide through a sweaty Vinyasa class with a great soundtrack and fun flow, or take you deep into a Yin experience to release tension that has burrowed in deep. Her skilled assists, gentle but effective, are such a treat too! "

"After years of listening to Joanna talk so highly about yoga and its ability to relieve stress and provide grounding, I finally tried a class. Her wealth of knowledge and patience makes her an amazingly inspiring teacher. I am so glad to be able to share this passion with her now."

yoga praise

"Joanna is just an amazing yoga teacher. I am not sure I have the word to describe the serenity and peace she creates for her classes. As soon as class begins you feel loved and supported. I leave Joanna's classes feeling full of love and peace. Thank you, Joanna, for sharing your beautiful spirit with all of us."
