I am Joanna Renee Fassl DC and I am a Holistic Chiropractor, Performance Artist, Performance Director and Singer-Songwriter. I have 20 years experience as a healing professional and a professional Performance Artist and am now at a place in my career where I am combining my two passions of Healing Work and Artistry. I find that wholeness is healing through the interface of ART and SCIENCE, VISION and EMBODIMENT, honoring both the LIGHT and SHADOW in our world and ourselves with the utmost respect. I work one on one with my clients combining Craniosacral Therapy with Breathwork, Myofascial Release, Chakra insight, and Music to imbue the physical body with the richness of the energetic body and in turn, to access the energetic body to liberate the physical body and emotional body. Breaking through resistance and armoring in the body allows for full expansion, potential and love to flow through unimpeded. It is through this practice of listening in and trusting the magic of the energetic and physical body that courageous huge shifts and grounded miracles are made possible. joannafassldc.com
Jo Lewzey discovered yoga in 2002 when she moved from her native London to San Francisco. Jo has a long history of working with the body – as a young adult she embarked on a dance career by attending a professional school and subsequently travelled Europe with a dance company for five years. Jo felt called to work with people in a way that would help them lead stronger, healthier lives.
At first, she tried everything – hot yoga, Ashtanga, Vinyasa – and in 2006 she decided to delve deeper into yoga and enrolled in the 200-hour teacher training with Yolanda Bain at The Mindful Body. After the course she began teaching a weekly class. While Jo loved being a personal trainer, it wasn’t her true calling. In 2010 she met the teacher that changed everything for her, Maritza – a longtime yogi who started as an Iyengar teacher and moved over to Anusara. Jo also completed a 300-hour teacher-training with Noah Maze in Los Angeles. He teaches alignment based yoga, in-depth Asana sequencing, anatomy, and Hindu Mythology.
For Jo, yoga is a way to connect with herself on a deeper level. It is a way to quiet down the noise, soften and release the resistances in the body, learn how to focus the mind and find a deep well of calm and well being within, no matter what is going on outside. She loves teaching because it constantly asks her to be the best version of herself. She loves the class environment, sharing her heart and soul with an amazing group of people. She teaches proper alignment in yoga poses and also hopes to teach students about yoga as a precious and invaluable healing practice of the body, mind, and heart and about how these tools can be used in aspects of our lives. She strives to instill in her students a trusting and healthy relationship with their bodies and relief from long held pain and injury. Lastly, she hopes that they begin to witness greatness within themselves and feel stronger and more equipped to face life with love and integrity.
