Johanna Brown - Yoga Teacher

Johanna discovered Yoga quite by accident.  It was as though a very precious and profound gift was delivered by the universe at precisely the right moment.  “During a period of darkness in my life, Yoga was a guiding light and a grounding force.  21 years on I continue to be a student of the practice, and as a teacher, my strongest driver is the wish to share the gifts of Yoga with others.  My hope is for students to discover a connection to their own light and ultimately peace, through a practice that is real and accessible. “

Johanna’s classes are a personal expression of the flowing style of Yoga in which she originally trained, with a focus on embodiment of the poses, transitioning with mindfulness, and linking all with breath. In Johanna’s classes you can expect to move a little slower and more deliberately to create a space for that experience.  In more recent years, Johanna is finding a stronger pull towards the deeply nourishing and restorative Yoga. “My wholehearted intention is to hold space where anyone stepping onto their mat, whether for the first, 100th or 1000th time, is empowered and enriched by their experience that day.” “We don't use our body to get into a pose, we use the pose to get into our body” - Bernie Clark

Qualifications:

  • Samadhi Yoga Teacher Level 1
