Why Us...

Hi, my name is JoAnna. I am the founder and director of Living the Yoga Life.

My background has been and continues to be in healthcare. I was a nurse for 35 years and branched out to medical aesthetics. After a car accident blindsided me, I spent several years trying to get out of chronic pain and find peace with my new lifestyle.

That is when my transformation began into mindfulness, yoga, Pilates, and various other self-care modalities necessary to get my life back on track.

I became certified in other healing practices such as acupuncture, low-level laser therapy, and hypnotherapy. I found adding various combinations of these therapies to be helpful to my clients. Self-care and mindfulness became my mantra.

My career for the past two decades has moved in the direction of helping others living with chronic pain, imbalances, and disharmony, to find peace and harmony for a blessed life that truly matters.
