Joan was first introduced to yoga by her mother in the early 80’s. After years of running marathons and doing triathlons, injuries have led her to deepen her yoga practice.
She first came to Radiant Hot Yoga in February of 2015 and completed the 30 day challenge that month. She loves the loving, supportive community at the studio. With this quick introduction she decided to the teacher training in the Spring of 2015. She enjoys inspiring and motivating people on and off the mat.
In her life outside the studio, Joan holds a MD degree from University of Colorado. She is a retired Anesthesiologist and has worked with various Non-profits in Orange County. Joan obtained her 200 hour yoga alliance teaching certificate in the Spring of 2015.
