Johanna took her first yoga class at At One Yoga in Phoenix Arizona and was instantly hooked. She began the 200 hour teacher training program after only a year of practice. Over the past 18 years, she's taught yoga in homes, studios, athletic clubs, spas, a community college and a professional athlete training center. Her favorite teacher, David Romanelli, made her fall in love with yoga and most influences her style. David's class has a sincere message, great music, and a soft touch. In 2006, she completed her advanced yoga training at Kripalu with Ana Forrest. Ana is fierce and believes in transformation through hard work. It is the mix of these two elements, nurturing but intense, that inspired one student to call her the velvet hammer.
