“I have been on four retreats with Joanne – to Mexico, Dominica, Peru and Rwanda– and each one has been better than the last. Although I’m only a casual practitioner of yoga, I have felt perfectly comfortable and have seen my practice dramatically improve though her daily sessions. Plus, there’s a healthy dose of adventure, whether visiting a boiling lake, hiking to lost Incan ruins, monkey trekking through the rainforest, or swimming with dolphins. I have made new friends along the way, many of whom come on retreat after retreat. Really, it’s the perfect way to get away from it all.”

Retreat to the Garden July 2018

The Garden is one of my favorite places to teach.

Each summer for the past seven years, I’ve led weekend retreats at this beautiful Victorian house near Beacon NY.

The gardens are beautiful, the delicious food is prepared by our private chefs and the porch is the perfect spot to read, relax or chat with new friends.

We practice yoga twice a day, balancing the morning vinyasa practice with an evening restorative practice.

Stay tuned for 2019 dates! 

Yoga Adventure Rwanda 2018

In conjunction with Souljourn Yoga, we spent 10 amazing days in Rwanda.

From monkey trekking to safari, to spending the day with local artisans, to “glamping” in a rain forest, we explored much of the country.

We practiced yoga to the sounds of the rainforest and spent the day with the inspiring girls at Komera. We’ll be returning to Rwanda in 2019. Dates and price will posted soon!

Peru 2017

In conjunction with Souljourn Yoga, for 10 magical days we explored the ancient lands of Peru traveling from Cusco to Machu Picchu, all while practicing yoga, hiking, biking, and meeting the girls from the Sacred Valley Project.

Dominica 2015

For 7 wonderful days we visited Dominica, the “Nature Island” of the Caribbean. We practiced yoga twice a day and went on some of the most beautiful hikes, including the famous (and challenging!) Boiling Lake Hike.

Upcoming Workshops

Restorative workshop at Yogamaya September 7th 2018

Restorative yoga is one of my favorite classes to teach! I’ll be facilitating the monthly Restorative workshop at Yogamaya in September.

The Restorative workshop is Yogamaya’s most gentle class and is appropriate for and loved by everyone. No yoga experience is necessary. Bolsters, blankets and blocks help to organize the body in relaxing poses which create space, openness and awareness. Restorative poses align the breath, decompress the inner body and leave you feeling refreshed and at ease.

For added relaxation, I will be incorporating healing Reiki energy and soothing essential oils, as well as leading a guided body scan.
