Initially Jo began practising Yoga for its physical benefits such as strength and flexibility but soon realised that it was much more powerful than anticipated. She fell in love with the practice and the positive effects it had on both her mind and body, on and off the mat.
Having trained in Ashtanga and Vinyasa Jo teaches a dynamic Yoga class that focuses on linking breath with movement to build strength, flexibility and balance. She will guide you through your practice providing alignment cues, hands on adjustments and modifications (perfect if you are a beginner or more advanced yogi). You will find this class both powerful and challenging and she hopes to have you leaving feeling a combination of relaxed, rejuvenated and empowered.
Yin is a slower, more restorative, floor based form of yoga in which students hold poses for between 3-5 minutes. Through deeper stretches this class will allow you to work into the connective tissues and fascia in the body, releasing tension and building on and improving flexibility. You should leave this class feeling a deep sense of relaxation with a calm, clear mind.
Joanne is an extremely motivated and passionate yoga teacher who takes great influence from everyday life and those around her. Through the power of pranayama (breath) and asana (postures/poses) she aims to create a space which not only challenges her students but encourages them to experience each moment for themselves in a fun and playful way. What she loves to see is how her students develop and advance in their practice. In her eyes each yogi is on their own, individual journey and she is honoured to be a part of the process.
Jo encourages you to focus on linking breath with movement whilst having fun and being open to anything that shows up on the mat. The aim is for you to leave feeling a combination of relaxed, rejuvenated and empowered.
