Joanna Elkhoury’s serious journey with Yoga started in 2005 when she had her first baby. She needed a something to help her cope with the stresses of a corporate job, as well as lack of sleep. An introducYoga became her sanctuary, and her tool for balance, clarity and strength. In 2011 she decided to quit her job and follow what triggers her passion. She enrolled in a 200 Hour Yoga teacher training with Yoga of India under the guidance of Mike Noury and received her certification with Yoga Alliance in March 2012. Ever since, she’s been teaching Yoga and meditation all over north metro Atlanta.
Joanna teaches the way she practices. Inspired by many teachers and styles, her style in yoga is very fluid and intuitive. Her classes focus on alignment and connection with the body and breath, while at the same time build strength and stamina. Focusing on all the aspects that constitute a Yoga practice: Asana, Pranayama, Meditation etc… Her goal is to help the students learn the system in a way that they can take the lessons they learn on the mat, and use them in all aspects of their lives.
Along with her passion for Yoga, Joanna has discovered an equal passion for energy healing. She’s been extensively trained in Pranic Healing since 2010 and is a certified Usui Reiki Master. The knowledge that she amassed from her energy healing practices brings in a very unique perspective and understanding of the unseen layers that constitute the Yoga experience. She often shares a lot of that knowledge with her Yoga students, guiding them on their own Yoga journey.
