Yoga, reflexology and reiki go hand in hand.

Not only have they helped me find balance and harmony in my own life, they have also enabled me to help others find it in theirs.



March 16th – 23rd 2024.

Choose your Own Adventure.



My healing and yoga journey began in 2000 when I completed my reiki and reflexology trainings. I went on to earn my first yoga teaching certification in 2002.

I teach yoga at corporations around Manhattan, ranging from Fortune 500 companies to small startups and have an established list of private clientele, varying in age from 5 to 95. I teach in well-known teacher trainings and lead yoga retreats to places both near and far.

My teaching style varies, depending upon my clients’ needs,  from flowing, yet focused vinyasa classes, to chair yoga, to restorative yoga to breath work.

I have a soft spot for beginners, who often tell me they’re “too inflexible for yoga”, yet often experience profound changes after only a few sessions.

My life truly changed the first time I stepped onto a yoga mat.
I had found a way of moving and being that could open my body, yet soothe my soul. After being diagnosed with debilitating sciatica at the age of 24, coupled with the inability to touch my toes for about 15 of those years, I felt trapped in a body that was too old for its years.

At my chiropractor’s suggestion, I started taking yoga classes and quickly fell in love with the connection of movement, body and breath.

I can now touch my toes and am living proof that with perseverance, and a lot of fun along the way, you can make life-long changes to your body and, in turn, your whole being.

The yoga practice has taught me that being flexible is often more a state of mind than a physical state of being, and that everyone, no matter their age or physicality, can benefit from yoga.

Reflexology and reiki are wonderful complements to the yoga practice and as therapies in their own right.

I feel privileged to offer grounding, intuitive and healing sessions for my clients.

When I’m not working with my clients, I can be found enjoying NYC and, often times escaping NYC.

I love hiking and kayaking and long walks with the family dog along the cliffs of Cornwall, in my native England.

“Working with Joanne for over a decade has seen me though the physical and emotional transformations of life. I wouldn’t trade our weekly sessions for the world: her unique combination of skills in yoga, reiki and reflexology bring me so much joy and grounding.”

The yoga practice has taught me that being flexible is often more a state of mind than a physical state of being.


Reflexology is an excellent way to reduce tension, promote healing, restore balance and encourage relaxation throughout the entire body.


Reiki is a gentle, hands-on method of energy healing that promotes balance, encourages healing and facilitates relaxation.
“Joanne is the ultimate in peaceful calming energy and impeccable instruction. Her beautiful voice and fluid movements inspire and energize you. Anyone who is lucky enough to be instructed by her will carry her influence throughout their lives. I know I do!”
