JoAnn holds an Advanced Relax & Renew Trainer Certificate, and has assisted Judith at her annual retreat at the Feathered Pipe Ranch, in Helena, Montana, among other retreats and workshops, for the last six years.
She credits her current teachers, Donald Moyer of The Yoga Room in Berkeley, California, and Judith Hanson Lasater with helping her put herself back together again from a very old injury that left her dealing with chronic pain for several years.
Since 1996, she has been sharing her love of yoga in classes for people with disabilities. Her teaching is grounded in her observation and knowledge of the body, and her intuitive awareness of both the needs and potential of her students. JoAnn offers workshops and apprenticeships on teaching yoga to people with disabilities as well as private sessions and her public classes.
