Hi, I’m Joanna and I am a Yoga teacher, KORE Therapist and Acupuncturist.
I am passionate about wellness and life in general and I have the best job in the world because I help 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!
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 finally found something that treated the ‘whole’ me – I began to understand that where I was feeling the pain wasn’t necessarily what was causing the pain (physical pain isn’t always caused by a physical issue – often ‘held’ emotions can cause physical pain).
On a physical level, my body felt so much better than it had done in years, and on an emotional level, I found I could move forwards with my life as I had lost that ‘stuck’ feeling.
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.
