You can expect a safe, fun journey on the mat for all levels in Joa’s classes with his easy breezy personality. If you have physical challenges and need some extra coaching in class, be sure to express your concerns and Joa will help you adapt accordingly.

In Joa’s own words, “I’m here to help you develop a growing, nurturing relationship with yourself, to lighten up and develop better understanding, intuition, flexibility, strengthening the body and mind. With life’s constant challenges we need a rejuvenating lifestyle with yoga and nutrition, they’re our tools to help live a vibrant life with nature at our side!

Joa has been practicing yoga for 20 years now, and also works in the visual, performing and holistic healing arts. He did his teacher training in Kundalini yoga in the late 90′s and is KRI certified. After four years, Joa decided to adventure into the Ashtanga practice for three solid years. He’s tried and tested many other popular yoga styles and trained with many well known local and international teachers.

One of the important parts of his training is a daily morning home practice with influences of Restorative, Yin, Power, Ashtanga, Hatha Flow etc.

A little more about Joa – you’re sure to find him beating a drum here at our monthly Kirtan! He is also our resident artist and painted the Mandala in the Body Room.
