Unlike bigger yoga studios where you feel you are a number and aren’t completely comfortable,

I teach small classes and am able to offer personalized and individual instruction.

My studios are not heated and I teach Hatha yoga

My students feel cared for and notice improvement in how they sit, stand and walk almost immediately

Come to class and discover how you can heal your body and relax your mind with yoga practice

I love how one of my students describes me and my yoga teaching style on her blog, Deconstruct the Yuck:

“What I have been doing lately though, is actually showing up to yoga class. I’ve mentioned this place I go to called It’s Just Yoga, which I absolutely love.

There is none of the pretentiousness that comes with some (or, ahem… I’d say a lot) of yoga classes in the western world. The instructor, Johanna Steinfeld, is as down to earth as they come, which sets the tone for the whole class. It’s just a bunch of people getting together and embracing wellness through movement and breath.

It’s Just Yoga. As Johanna will often say in her classes, yoga is about playing with a pose, yoga is ‘making shapes’ your body doesn’t make in everyday life, which may lead to opening up in different ways.

I love this approach – it is not about being ‘good,’ it is simply about being real.”
