First led to yoga through her college meditation studies, almost two decades later Joanna still finds yoga to be the best way to understand ones true self. She urges the use of breath as a guide to finding softness within our poses and our thoughts, and as a pathway toward a deeper connection to ourselves, our world, and each other.

Joanna began teaching yoga in 2009 after completing her 200-hour training through Core Power Yoga in Boulder, Colorado. She currently teaches at various studios in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (including Yoga Love, Inhale, and Vital Glow) and manages the yoga program at ASCEND, a climbing facility in the South Side of Pittsburgh. 

Believing in the importance of seva (sankrit for service), she volunteers her time as a yoga teacher and as a licensed attorney. A lover of the outdoors, she spends her time rock climbing, hiking, paddle boarding, and exploring the world with her rescue dog Mabel.

Joanna is available for private lessons, workshops, and retreats.
