Joanna Elkhoury

200 ERYT, YACEP

Owner, Teacher, Energy Healer, Life Long Student

Joanna Elkhoury’s serious journey with Yoga started in 2005 when she had her first baby.  She needed something to help her cope with the stresses of a corporate job, as well as lack of sleep.  An introduction to Yoga became her sanctuary, and her tool for balance, clarity, and strength.  In 2011 she decided to quit her job and follow what triggers her passion.  She enrolled in a 200 Hour Yoga teacher training and received her certification with Yoga Alliance in March 2012.   Ever since she’s been teaching Yoga and meditation all over north metro Atlanta.

 

Joanna teaches the way she practices. Inspired by many teachers and styles, her style in yoga is very fluid and intuitive.  Her classes focus on alignment and connection between breath and movement.  Focusing on all the aspects that constitute a Yoga practice: Asana, Pranayama, Meditation...  Her goal is to help the students learn the system in a way that they can take the lessons they learn on the mat, and use them in all aspects of their lives.

 

 

 

Along with her passion for Yoga, Joanna has discovered an equal passion for energy healing.  She’s been extensively trained in Pranic Healing since 2010 and is a certified Usui Reiki Master.  The knowledge that she amassed from her energy healing practices brings in a very unique perspective and understanding of the unseen layers that constitute the Yoga experience.  She often shares a lot of that knowledge with her Yoga students, guiding them on their own Yoga journey.

 

Yoga has been Joanna’s tool to ground and grow. It has been her companion as a wife, mother of two boys, as a friend, and as a teacher.  In short, it made her discover her essence and her inner power.  Her passion is to share this tool and help others discover that experience.

Sharon Ross

E-RYT200, RYT500, YACEP 

Teacher/Life Long Student 

  Sharon discovered yoga 12 years ago after life-altering events left her depleted physically and emotionally. Unable to do a rigorous workout, but determined to become stronger, she wandered into a yoga studio and began her journey back to health and, ultimately, back to Self.

 

Sharon completed her 200-hr Teaching certification in 2017; and, in 2021, completed her 500-hr Advanced Yoga Teaching certification, both with Sheila Ewers, with additional certifications in Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra. 

 

Sharon’s classes include pranayama (breath techniques), asanas (postures), and centering/meditation. Classes, at minimum, give a nod, and oftentimes a deep bow, to the rich and ancient wisdom of yoga by incorporating yogic philosophy and relating it to our modern lives. Sharon’s hope is for you to leave class feeling more centered, balanced and open than when you arrived; and, with dedicated practice, more equipped to face challenges and embrace joy, not only on the mat, but in your life as well.
