Joanne’s teaching is inspired by the Kripalu method of inner attunement, Iyengar based alignment principles, the breathwork of Viniyoga and her experience as a Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapist. As a 500 hour professional level Kripalu teacher with 30 years of personal practice and teaching, she delights in introducing newcomers to yoga and challenging experienced students on their path of Self discovery. Joanne has offered private yoga, breathing, and meditation sessions in the Montreal community for over 25 years. Joanne is also an active member of the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign of The Stephen Lewis Foundation. Inspired by the strength, spirit and courage of the African grandmothers, she helps to raise awareness and funds for their tireless efforts to raise their grandchildren, orphaned by AIDS. This July, Joanne will be a delegate for the Campaign at the National Grandmothers Gathering in Durban, South Africa.
