Testimonials: Weekly Classes

From Carol Robins, Grandmother |  Leavenworth, WA

I never thought in my whole life I would ever identify with “yoga” and thank you for making it accessible to me at this time.  I have always been so “compressed” and your class is actually “decompressing” me as I leave each time more and more “open.”  Again I left pain-free after arriving with my usual kink. I appreciate your nurturing style and calm accepting voice.


From Sarah Barkley, Triathlete  |  Wenatchee, WA

First I can’t thank you enough – I’ve found it difficult to find a yoga class that best suits my needs as a competitive athlete. As a competitive athlete with full-time work, my days are not unlike most – GO-GO-GO! I had been reluctant to add one more thing to my schedule, but have found that just one yoga class a week has seriously impacted my ability to recover and re-set both physically and mentally.  For just over an hour a week, I slow down and check-in with ME and realize where I’m tight and imbalanced.


From Mary Gunkel, Oncology Nurse and Yoga Teacher  |  Wenatchee, WA

Joanna teaches yoga with compassion and wise insight. Her approach is one of warm and focused attention. She brings extensive knowledge of yoga practice, philosophy and history to the mat. She has trained and studied various yoga styles and traditions. Joanna has the capacity to work with a wide range of yoga ability and is able to adapt yoga to fit the person. She meets the student where they are at to move them to the next place they want to go in their journey.


From an anonymous student and movement teacher  |  Washington State

I love Joanna’s yoga!  Her style is refreshingly unique, as compared to many cookie-cutter yoga classes.  I have studied yoga for 25 years and she can still find new places and spaces in my body to awaken and strengthen, while still being gentle and accessible.
