About Joanna Blundell
Joanna enjoys sharing the benefits of yoga with everyone - and all people are welcome in her classes. She feels her best after yoga practice, whether a slow, moving meditation or a strong physical practice. She wants to encourage others to experience the same sense of peace and inspiration that comes from moving the body led by the breath and the calming of the mind.
She teaches vinyasa and hatha classes inspired by many traditions, from the ancient to the modern. Classes are beneficial to body and mind - strong and precise, increasing balance, flexibility and strength. She links the breath to each movement and encourages the mind to settle with clear and detailed instruction. She pays close attention to alignment, encouraging and empowering each person to honour and protect their body by always working at their own pace.
She believes the practice of yoga can positively influence how we live in many ways. It helps us to feel less alone and part of a community which begins by connecting first to ourselves and then to the world around us, including other sentient creatures, and the Earth and its elements, of which we are guardians. We learn to slow down, pay attention and clear away obstacles - whether physical, mental or spiritual - to find greater compassion and clearer vision. Joanna teaches yoga as a transformative practice that can promote health, wellbeing and joy. She honours and thanks all her teachers.
She is a 500-hour registered yoga teacher (RYT) with Yoga Alliance. She started teaching in 2013 in Qatar and leads classes, courses, workshops and special events. When not teaching yoga, she works in TV News for major international broadcasters.
