Johanna Wekar

Johanna has been interested in human behavior and helping others since an early age, which led her to a degree in Social Work. A psychotherapist for the past 14 years, Johanna believes that well-being can be enhanced through intellectual, emotional, physical and spiritual methods. Johanna has dipped her toe in and out of the practice of yoga since her 20’s and it has been more recent, during a time of personal stress, that she has fully embraced the power of the practice to enhance well- being. Johanna has practiced Mindfulness for the past 14 years and considers it essential to living life to the fullest capacity. Ultimately, this is Johanna’s reason for teaching yoga – to help students find the ability and confidence to live a full and joyful life. Johanna received her 200-hour Yoga Alliance certification in 2015 at Yoga Culture in Danbury, CT, a studio that practices Vinyasa with a focus on alignment. Johanna believes that practicing yoga should be a fun, challenging yet peaceful experience. When not practicing Yoga, Johanna can be found spending time with her rescue dog, Roxy; spending time with friends and family; traveling and enjoying live music.
