Joanna is simply wonderful. Joanna guides the participants through the process of the yoga nidra experience with a gentleness that must be experienced to fully appreciate and understand. Joanna’s voice, her delivery and her empathy allows me, and the others in the class, to relax in such a deep and restful way, that one hour seems like ten minutes of time and you leave the studio completely rested, both body and mind.
