Since leaving a professional non-profit career in New York
City, Joan has immersed herself studying yoga and training with
expert teachers. She completed her first Anusara teacher training
at Yoga Montclair with Certified Anusara teacher, Vishali Vega in
2006 and completed continuing education workshops with renowned
teachers including John Friend, the founder of Anusara Yoga, Todd
Norian, Sianna Sherman, Christina Sell, Desiree Rumbaugh and Zhenja
LaRosa. Joan continues to study with Professor Douglas Brooks,
Ph.D. a world leading scholar of Hindu School of Tantra.
In her teaching, Joan creates an environment and pace that are
both challenging and safe for students at all levels of ability and
experience. Joan shares her desire for yoga to guide students to a
transformational place where a radically positive shift can take
place in body, mind, and heart. Joan describes the teaching of yoga
as a divine privilege. Each student is a gift!
