I have been practicing yoga with Joanna for six years now. Because she varies routines and poses and provides options for beginning to advanced students, the classes are never the same.
Joanna has taught me how to honor my body, the importance of breathing, to challenge myself by taking my practice to a point of interest – not pain and to let the bliss bubble up.
Her teaching and my practice have given me my life back
I hope to be practicing yoga with Joanna for many years to come.
My first week of meditation has been wonderful. Even on the first day, I noticed I had more energy. I had a party at my house that night. I was planning to rest for a while in the afternoon, but it wasn't necessary. In addition, I have felt more relaxed at work in spite of being unusually busy.”
MORE MEDITATORS RAVE!
"This is easy and I will be able to easily incorporate it into my life."
"This has been a wonderful jumpstart for me to begin meditating daily."
"It was everything I was looking for!"
Joanna is an excellent yoga teacher because she checks in with us before class and then gives us the yoga that we need today. She has an intuitive knowing of the poses, breathwork, and philosophy that guide us to our calmer selves.
"YOUR CLASS TODAY WAS SO SPECIAL..."
One word kept coming to mind during class. That word was "ELEGANT!" There seemed to be a natural grace and beauty in how you led us into positions in your creative and unique way. Your natural elegance helped me to feel elegant for a few moments, too.
After struggling with depression and anxiety for much of my life, I feared that I would not be emotionally ready for the challenges inherent to pregnancy and motherhood.
Joanna met my unsettled self with patience, calm and kindness, and began a gently progressing process of uncovering places in my body and mind which had become stuck and rigid.
My sessions were very special experiences for me, as I realized that the place in me where my growing baby resided was where I felt most joyful, strong and centered.
I started a yoga class with Joanna Brandt to improve my flexibility for competitive swimming ...What I got is so much more. I leave each class or personal session calm, focused, and frequently transformed.
Private sessions with Joanna are astonishing. I feel connected to everything, physically inside myself and to the world at large. I have the feeling of Limitless Possibilities. So while my flexibility has certainly improved, it’s the improvement in my overall being that’s the real, true benefit .
Joanna is always upbeat and enthusiastic with a sense of humor thrown in yet she is also caring and attentive to individual needs. My friend and I have been practicing yoga with Joanna for 6+ years. We had previously experienced instruction that pushed us beyond our comfort zone and Joanna is exactly the opposite.
She encourages and reminds you to know your limits and love yourself as you are. She also expands her interests beyond yoga instruction and is always sharing her ideas. She has improved my outlook and repeatedly renews my spirit.
