Mindful Lifestyle Coach
As a child, Joanna suffered from muscular pains and body misalignment, with doctors saying there was little hope of finding cure. At the age of 13 she took matters into her own hands which was the start of her journey with alternative therapies such as yoga, meditation and vegan diet. Joanna quickly discovered that a daily yoga and meditation practice alleviated her pain and her plant based diet helped her to eliminate toxins from the body.
Having completely healed her body and her condition in as little as 4 years, Joanna decided to pursue a mindful yogic lifestyle and went on to study yoga, meditation and breathing techniques in India for a few years where she received two master Yoga teacher training diplomas from Mysore. Additionally, Joanna was certified in Ayurvedic Breathing (Pranayama), Sound Healing using crystal singing bowls, and completed the Mindful Living Coach certification in London. She has been teaching for the past 6 years in Asia, Europe, and all around the world on a luxury cruise ship.
