Hey!

I'm Joanna

Your Yoga Teacher, Massage Therapist & Wellbeing Coach

Since age 19, I have immersed myself in Yoga, with extensive travels across Australia and Southeast Asia, deepening my practice and exploring holistic therapies like Thai Massage.

Alongside diverse academic pursuits, including Anthropology and Sociology, I trained in Ashtanga Yoga, and Ayurveda in India. Since 2014, I taught Yoga across various institutions in Bath, also gaining expertise in teaching English as a foreign language. My passion for holistic health led me to study Massage and various Bodywork techniques, and qualify in further Yoga teacher trainings, eventually founding Metta Yoga and Massage in 2020.

My inherent compassion and commitment to supporting those facing challenges, combined with a keen interest in holistic health, psychology, and personal growth, have guided my educational journey and motivated the establishment of this company. Specifically drawn to trauma and its therapeutic approaches, I frequently collaborate with clients who have experienced trauma, seeking to provide meaningful support and healing.

 

Believing in a holistic approach to wellness, I integrate mind, body, and spirit in therapy, drawing from personal experiences with Yoga and Massage to benefit my clients. Continuously seeking growth, I engage in ongoing learning and travel adventures, driven by curiosity and a desire to expand my skills and horizons.

I completed a Counselling and Psychotherapy Foundation at the Bath Counselling and Psychotherapy Centre (BCPC) in 2023. This equips me with essential therapeutic listening skills to enhance my clients' healing journeys. Additionally, I have completed a Life Coaching Diploma, Women's Holistic Health Coach Teacher Training, and a Mental Health and Wellbeing Practitioner Certificate. These qualifications enable me to offer comprehensive Wellbeing Coaching services.
