Joanne’s History as a Yoga Student and Teacher:

Joanne Marshall has been teaching yoga since 2001 in the UNC Group Fitness Program and more recently at the Chapel Hill/Carrboro YMCA, the Ackland Art Museum, and the North Carolina Botanical Garden. She is a Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance at the 500-hour level

Joanne has completed yoga teacher trainings and been a teaching assistant for Donna Farhi, an internationally known yoga teacher and author Joanne has benefited from many wonderful yoga teachers at Triangle Yoga from the Chapel Hill area including Molly Drake, Sabine Mead, Lisa Clark, David Beadle, Scott Campbell, Rebecca Drake and others.

Joanne calls her style “mindful yoga” because it takes a slower, deeper approach to the practice that builds inner awareness and presence. Her classes are accessible to people of any age or fitness level. They can be helpful to newcomers to yoga who want to take a slower approach to learning the poses but they can also help experienced practitioners to refine their practice. The practice increases flexibility, strength and ease of movement in an atmosphere that encourages self-acceptance and non-judgment. Participants are encouraged to go at their own pace and to modify poses as appropriate for their situation. Mindful yoga is particularly helpful for stress reduction and finding a sense of calm and balance in one’s life.
