“I began practicing yoga last year, about the same time I started chemotherapy for breast cancer. At first I was thinking, “Wow! There is no way I am ever going to be able to do these poses!” But with the help of Joann and Ted showing me variations leading up to a particular pose, I am now standing on my head! I feel that yoga has brought a sense of lightness and relief into my life. I am a calmer person. Keeping negativity out and letting in all that is positive. Yoga has helped me realize that I have the power to do whatever I want. Now it’s a year later and I am cancer free, happy, and standing as a strong warrior! Thank you Joann and Ted for sharing your practice!” —K.L.
“We LOVED your class, it was exactly what we needed and we’re going to be back! Thank you for letting us borrow mats and for leading us in that amazing class. We’ll see you Sunday!” —Mallory
“I have never taken a yoga class which I so look forward to as Joann’s. She has created an oasis of sorts in this space at the farm. Her kindness, gentleness, and compassion radiate from her beautiful spirit. Each class presents a challenge for me to overcome.” —TP
“I am 72. Since I started doing yoga almost 3 years ago, I definitely feel better and am more flexible and probably a little stronger. I have essentially eliminated hip and lower back issues and have reduced shoulder problems. I lost a little weight, too.” —K.B.
“We all have heard so many amazing things about yoga lately, but you really have to try it just once and you will find out why! I started taking yoga classes with Joann one year ago and so far this is the most fascinating journey my body and spirit had been on! I truly enjoy the hard workout, the peaceful state of mind and the lovely energy of the whole experience!” —H.T.
“It was the first time I have had such personal attention during practice. It was the fine tuning and different ways of thinking about the postures that I found extremely helpful. When I started with Joann, I had just thrown my back out and could hardly bend forward. I am blown away by the progress I have made in such a short period of time.” —SS
“By keeping an eye on every student in the class and helping each individual do the basic positions and modified variations of them within his/her own particular ability, it has helped each of us get the most out of the class, as well as encouraged us to keep benefiting from yoga.”—KB
“I’ve been practicing with Joann for about eight or nine months, and I feel so much better. I’m stronger and more flexible and I take a peaceful feeling home with me after each practice. This is the first time in my life that I’ve participated in an exercise program that I really look forward to each time I go. I’m fitter at 50 that I was 5 years ago. Namaste.” —HN
“Love yoga at the Farm with Joann…lowers my blood pressure and makes me feel ten years younger! Great workout for any age!” —C.P.
