ook Students in the Inner Strength Yoga Teacher Training Comment
on Johanna's Yoga Sutra Workshop, Jan. 7, 2012


My experience at Johanna's Yoga Sutra's workshop was phenomenal. She is a wonderful teacher who speaks from such delightful expertise that we can fully relate to her teaching. She is a vibrant and energetic individual who knows how to reach her students. It was a great pleasure to finally meet her in January after having read her book "Yoga Life," as a spiritual part of Yoga Teacher Training, at Inner Strength Yoga. Namaste, Coty Benrimoj

Johanna is an awesome teacher. She does more than the (sutra) fundamentals. She explains them so it is logical, easy to remember, and practical with a balance of comprehensive details to get the big picture. She won't let you forget what you learned so you can apply it to your every-day life long after the class is over. It is a great pleasure to be her student.
Namaste, Nancy Maple, yoga practitioner 14 years

Johanna, you are a wonderful, loving soul who has so much wisdom and clarity to offer to anyone willing to listen! You taught me that yoga is FAR more than poses, but really is a way of life that can lead to a more peaceful, loving and fulfilling existence. I am so grateful to have met you! Love & Namaste, Lisa Stark

Johanna definitely walks her talk. She has dedicated her life to living a spiritual path and shares her wisdom and experience humbly, with a sense of humor. Her kind heart encourages students to look within and discover their own beauty and freedom. I feel blessed to have studied with Johanna several times over the past few years and continue to benefit from reading/listening to her gifts, the books YogaLife and Cultivate Contentment.

Join Johanna (Maheshvari) as she makes yoga philosophy easy and relevant to everyday life.  She will guide you and a partner to give each other a brief, in-depth Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy experience. BYO partner, or meet one at the Princeton Center. To whet your interest, here’s what the first four yoga sutras say—

          * Now begins the complete experience of the sacred art  

             and science of yoga    

          * Yoga is the cessation of movements in the consciousness

          * Then the seer dwells in his/her own true splendor

          * At other times, the seer identifies with the fluctuating

             consciousness


So, you are not your mind, and the purpose of yoga is to quiet it. If you identify with your rampant thoughts, you miss out on your peaceful inner being. Join us to learn more!
