Course: Yoga Instructor
Hi there, My name is Joanmae Hernandez.
I am a Yoga Teacher (RYT200), CMT & HHP.
I started practicing Yoga 10 years ago right after I moved to California.
Yoga has helped and shaped my mindset tremendously.
Since then, Yoga has been my outlet and it is a big part of my journey towards self-discovery and healing. I started my teaching journey in 2019.
I am passionate about proving a more in-depth and functional Yoga to help us on our day to day lives from Meditation to Breath Work and Movement. I teach through the lineage of Iyengar Yoga and provide different styles of Yoga from Hatha, Yin, Restorative, Chair, Vinyasa, and various Hybrid Yoga Classes.
I invite you to join me as we find peace, happiness, balance and
flexibility through the art of movement one breath at a time!
