Joanne Smallwood has been a devoted yoga practitioner since her early twenties, and has taught internationally for the past 12 years. Completing her Teacher Training in 2005 at The Downward Dog Yoga Centre in Toronto, with Ron Reid and Diane Bruni, she soon traded the infamous Canadian winters for warmer shores of India. Since 2005, Joanne has been working in Goa, India, as the general manager of Brahmani Yoga, one of the leading yoga centres in the region. This enabled her to expand her knowledge and love of yoga, her teaching, whilst allowing her to further develop her passion through courses and in her own practice.
During that time, Joanne attended most of the Brahmani teacher trainings including Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow, Prenatal and Restorative, and holds the Yoga Alliance E-RYT 500 hours accreditation. Her teaching focuses on Vinyasa Flow, but also reflects her diverse background to incorporate other traditions and styles. She teaches with awareness and enthusiasm, whilst always being attentive to students' needs and the energy of the class.
Joanne is teaching regualr classes at Zoga Yoga Cafe in Dubai, UAE and it avaialble for private sessions. You can contact Joanne by email.
