Joanna, Yoga Instructor. Columbus, Indiana.

I personally discovered my love for yoga over 2 years ago. For the last year, I let life get in the way and had a set back from my practice. Well, a friend invited me to join her at class a month ago, and man am I glad I made the time! I have been going back 2-3 times a week since. I have even continued my practice at home. Yoga is so much more than stretching and doing handstands. Yoga forces me to breath deeper, set my daily intentions, meditate, open my mind, stretch my body and share the light and joy of life with others. It makes me a better person and helps keep my flexible and active. I would recommend it to anyone no matter how old or young and how in or out of shape you are.
Meet this lovely yoga instructor, Joanna. I had taken one of her yoga classes on a Saturday morning in the past. So I was thrilled when she asked me to photograph her practice and journey ~ she is amazing and seriously a ray of light. Other than teaching yoga, she is also a school therapist. Joanna said getting her instructor certification was definitely life changing. I wish my schedule allowed for me to take her evening classes. Be sure to follow her yoga journey on her Instagram and take one of her classes at Uptown Yoga.
