Find Wellness at Work

"Joanna is a true soul guide.  She knows how to listen to people's food narratives, affirm them, and give them thoughtful, practical information in order to help them to live their most balanced lives.  Joanna's Mindful Eating workshop was a really lovely meditation on creating room for being truly present and awake during our mealtime experiences.  Joanna is knowledgeable, trustworthy, and provides a safe haven for individuals to openly share their food stories."  -- Lauren Nixon, Food and Wellness Educator

Workshops and Offerings

Tuning-in to and Reducing Your Stress

A 60-90 minute workshop dedicated to learning more about the stress cycle and (most importantly), how to manage it in the midst of a busy life. This session also includes exercises to explore creating balance in one’s life, easy relaxation techniques, and concludes with a guided mini-meditation to arm employees with stress-reduction tactics they can implement into their daily lives.

Mindful Eating Workshop

This 60-minute workshop is all about being more present in one's life -- especially when it comes to nourishment. As this is all about food, we'll sample a few healthy items catered by Wandering Wellness to gain greater awareness of and comfort for eating with the senses, and deepening enjoyment, nutrition, and gratitude when it comes to meals.

Healthy Nutrition for a Busy Life

This 60-90 minute session is all about how to select proper nutrition and nourishment for the modern busy person.  In it we'll investigate what nutrients the body needs to thrive well and how to eat for immunity and stress-reduction. This session can include or not include catered healthy snacks. 

Guided Meditation and Relaxation at Work

These 60-minute sessions are all about enabling people to feel more grounded, centered, and balanced at work. We'll begin with some easy 'take-home' relaxation techniques and end with a very easy guided meditation leaving attendees feeling super refreshed and rejuvenated.

Customizable Wellness Workshops

If your organization has a specific topic or format in mind, I’m happy to work with you to create a customized workshop designed specifically for your needs.

Joanna has been a wonderful addition to our wellness program and classes. She has led both meditation and nutrition classes for our corporate employees over the past year. Both of these have been game-changers, changing employee behaviors and mindsets while also appealing to diverse audiences.

Joanna’s content and approach speaks well to employees who are unfamiliar with mindful practices, but also resonates well with employees who are well seasoned in the space. We are excited to continue to partner with Joanna in 2016 to create a healthy and mindful environment at Optoro. We highly recommend her to anyone looking to engage employees in wellness initiatives. She is both passionate and knowledgeable as well as a true professional.

Joanna designed a yoga and meditation class for our group of social justice activists that was both accessible for first-timers and nourishing for those with many years of practice. We especially enjoyed the yoga nidra moment that brought us into a rare state of deep relaxation. When I’m in Joanna’s presence I feel I’m with someone who is cultivating her own happiness and is energized by sharing it with others. Joanna brings out the best in those who she works with and she is an inspiration to all.
