Johanna’s passion is elevating the vibration of the collective through the philosophy and lifestyle of yoga. She uses her passion to educate others on how to apply yoga beyond what we think of on a yoga mat and into the way we think and approach every second and situation of our lives.

Johanna has developed B.A.Y. Lifestyle and Beyond Asana Yoga School, through which she aims to disseminate the practice of yoga to individuals desiring to incorporate a new lifestyle and to future yoga teachers internationally certifying them to lead others in the practice.Currently Johanna is working on creating a college curriculum so yoga philosophy can be taught as an elective in colleges in Puerto Rico.
