She combines Kripalu (YTT 500-hour) training with yoga nidra guided meditation, sound healing, chanting, Reiki and intuitive insight to offer a truly unique class experience. After a decade of teaching in big cities (NYC and LA), Joan moved to Guerneville with her husband and daughter in 2012 and opened Riverbed a few months later.
