I started doing yoga with Jo nearly 3 years ago, following some negative experiences with another yoga teacher. It was fantastic to find someone who was not only very knowledgeable and skilled in yoga but also a great instructor. Jo is a calm and relaxed teacher who challenges without pushing and is always willing to help during and after the class.
Having started yoga at 50+ I came with a number of old injuries; most of which have now resolved. I’ve increased my strength and flexibility beyond what I ever imagined was possible, I’ve learned the art of relaxation and had a lot of fun doing it. I’ve no hesitation in recommending Jo to anyone who wants to improve both their physical and spiritual health.
I have been doing yoga with Jo for three years.I am in my early sixties and have been amazed at the improvement in my posture,flexibility and fitness level.Jo's patience,clear instructions and encouragement are wonderful.She has helped me recover from a back injury and a mastectomy.
At 61 years young I decided to try yoga in order to improve body flexibility and in particular to strengthen back muscles and reduce incidence of back pain. A friend recommended Joanne's class at Cottesloe so I started attending Tuesday and Thursday mornings. What I enjoy about Joanne's teaching methods is the variety of yoga styles with additional exercises from other disciplines such as Pilates. Within six months I noticed a definite reduction in incidence of back pain and improved flexibility. The combination of Joanne's helpful, friendly and professional instruction, makes Joyoga a great way to spend an hour and a quarter.
