When I met Johanna I was obese, ashamed of my appearance, with no self esteem and had a skyrocketing blood pressure, on the verge of a heart attack or stoke. My introduction to yoga and the support I received by Johanna was life changing. Through yoga she immediately got me to start taking care of myself. She knew when to push me hard and when to let up. Her introduction to yoga and her support were life changing. Today I am 70 pounds lighter, a certified Yoga teacher with a new overall lease in life. Johanna was a crucial influence in the life changes I made to better myself and find my purpose. Her compassion her energy and her drive are remarkable. If you come to her for help, she simply will not stop until you are on the road to bettering yourself and fulfilling your purpose.

Being asked to describe Johanna’s knowledge and how she tre translates it to her clients is like asking one to describe very single star on a mid summer night. There is simply too many, yet each unique in their own way. Johanna has been working with me in my yoga practice for over 5 years and she game a totally different perspective on the practice. Johanna created a practice that was designed specifucally for me health, flexibility and fitness level and has been able to demonstrate the importance of my breathing techniques and focus. Johanna has offered 100% dedication and works effortlessly to ensure her clients receive the best mentoship possible in order for them to achieve their goals. I highly recommend Johanna and look forward to using her services for many years to come.

What was once a five-years long pipe dream has materialized! As I graduated Beyond Asana Yoga’s 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training! Much gratitude to Johanna and Manjeet for co-teaching and leading us into a deeper pathway in our knowledge and yoga practice. I was sweating bullets teaching mock classes and piecing everything together… the breath, movement, chakras, muscle, feelings… Namaste to my classmates Leo and Michelle who put up with my giggles and uncontrollable laughter in class. Yoga is my medicine.
