Hi, I’m Joanna
I am a Yoga teacher, KORE Therapist, Acupuncturist and busy mum of 3 fantastic kids.
I'm passionate about wellness.
This means feeling as good as we can in the skin we’re in. I know how hard it is to carve out a little ‘me’ time when you’re juggling the demands of home and work. It never ends, does it?
What keeps me sane is all the tips and tricks I have to share:
yoga practices that not only build a stronger, healthier body, but also soothe and calm the overwhelmed mind and nervous system – easing those fight or flight feelings; holistic therapy treatments that can help shift long-held, stubborn aches, pains or conditions that are stopping you from living your best life.
I’m in love with life and I have THE best job in the world: helping my clients to overcome their pain, injury and dis-ease.
We all want to live our best lives and I believe that Yoga and KORE Therapy allow us to get closer to this ideal.
I discovered Yoga whilst at University and it has been a part of my life ever since. I worked as a secondary school English teacher until my children came along and I knew then that my life needed a new direction. I knew I could teach and Yoga was an integral part of my life, and so becoming a Yoga teacher was a no brainer!
After initially training with Simon Low’s Yoga Academy over 12 years ago, I recently took a formal Yin Yoga teacher training with the respected Yin Yoga teacher and author, Bernie Clark. You can visit Bernie Clark’s Yin Yoga site here if you’d like to learn more. I am a fully trained pre- and post-natal yoga and kids yoga teacher – I work in Primary Schools offering Yoga and mindfulness classes to all ages. I am forever a student and am constantly updating my Yoga practice by attending courses with respected Yoga practitioners and guides.
Currently I am studying Breathwork & Pranayama with Laurent Roure, Yoga Development with Andrea Kwiatkowski and Patanjali’s Yoga Scriptures.
My KORE journey began through experience – after years of osteopathic and chiropractic treatments (among other things), which would give only temporary relief for my back and neck discomfort, I had 4 sessions of KORE Therapy. It made such a profound difference – not only to my range of motion and pain levels, but also to my overall feelings of wellbeing.
I had stepped out of the puddle I’d been standing in for many years.
Training as a KORE Therapist was a natural next step and perfectly complements my work as a yoga teacher.
I now have the pleasure of helping many people on their healing journey to total wellness, and I balance this around the demands of single-parenting to three fantastic children. I know how hard it is to be a working mum and I love to support other busy mums.
There is no easy, quick-fix solution, however my regular yoga practice has been the key stone to my sanity as I bring up my children and try to be the best mum I can.
