Joanna was inspired and encouraged to follow the path of yoga teacher training after many years practicing and enjoying yoga classes. Her love of dynamic flowing sequences led her to pursue Astanga Yoga Teacher Training which she completed in 2004 with Brian Cooper and Nawajyoti at Union Yoga in Edinburgh and Shanti Griha in Scoraig, Scotland.
Joanna continues to deepen her yoga practice and draws inspiration from workshops and intensives with a wide range of well known yogis such as Sri Dharma Mittra, David Swenson, Matthew Sweeney, Paul Grilley, Kausthub Desikachar, Shiva Rea, Liz Lark, Claire Missingham, David Sye, Simon Low, Eric Schiffman and Sarah Powers.
Joanna has recently achieved her 300Hrs Certification in Prana Flow® Energetic Vinyasa Yoga with Shiva Rea – her main inspiration! She has also been accredited with the Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) 500 hours and Senior Yoga Teacher (SYT) with Yoga Alliance UK.
Joanna hosts and organises Yoga Workshops with many of her inspirational Teachers right here in Manchester and has also ran over 25 successful Yoga Holidays and retreats in Spain, Turkey, Crete, Italy, the Lake District and Champneys Springs Spa.
