Johanna’s unforgettable songs will open your heart and inspire you on your journey long after the last note fades into silence.

Lullaby Yoga™ Sunday at 10am at Yoga Hall 2

With Hadji, Rob and Melissa Lundsgaard (musical support, adjustments, and chanting), and Shakti goddesses Mary Pat Alvarez, Kelly Love, Maria Fernanda Aguirre, and more (adjustments and essential oil spray).

In Lullaby Yoga, Johanna gently guides participants through a series of deeply relaxing poses while singing and playing soothing songs and chants. Her class uses principles from restorative yoga, therapeutic yoga, yoga nidra, and subtle body and breath work. The music provides a luxurious, peaceful space for the mind to rest while the body relaxes, rebalances, and restores itself.
