Johanna Wise is a certified AcroYoga teacher, a 500-hr Kripalu Yoga Teacher, and licensed massage therapist/ massage instructor. Johanna serves as Lead Healing Arts Therapist/ yoga teacher/ program presenter at Kripalu, teaches at several studios, and has a private practice. Johanna is passionate about sharing the profound ways in which yoga and bodywork reconnect us to our bodies and ourselves.
When Johanna discovered acroyoga, she fell in love. Acroyoga brought together elements of all of the most influential practices that had long been part of Johanna's life - gymnastics, dance, yoga, massage, and intimacy & relational work/ conscious communication. Like gymnastics, acroyoga engages the practitioner in creative, playful movement, and offers an experience of "flying" through the air. Acroyoga also brings in the spirituality of yoga, and the deep healing and connection of massage. Acoryoga is at its core, a practice of collaboration and co-creation, and in this way brings in conscious communication.
Johanna's favorite part of teaching acroyoga is seeing her students surprise themselves with courage and strength they didn't know they had.
