Private  Instruction 

studio private sessions


Private yoga therapy sessions are the most effective way to resolve underlying issues related to pain. With private 1-on-1 sessions you get my full attention and sessions are tailor made just for you so you can start to progress quickly. 

Many individuals who are in pain fear movement and activity that might make things worse. If that includes you I can help you change that. 

Posture is also a concern for many of my clients. Posture isn't about standing or sitting up straight. It's about proper body mechanics like sitting on your sitz bones instead of your tail bone. Yoga therapy can help you improve your posture naturally and gradually. 


  • They come from all walks of life.

  • Conditions vary. I've helped many individuals including those with back, neck or shoulder pain, fibromyalgia, heart conditions, general stiffness, arthritis, knee or hip replacements. 

  • Many of my clients reach out to me after they've completed a treatment plan with their physiotherapist and continue to make significant improvements with yoga therapy.

  • Others want to be more pro-active with their self-care and use yoga therapy to supplement the work of manual soft tissue therapies like osteopathy, chiropractic and massage. 


  • Releases chronic musculo-skeletal contraction that results from stress, physical trauma, and repetitive movement that may cause back and neck pain, scoliosis, sciatica, knee, hip and shoulder pain.​

  • Allows the brain to recalibrate the co-ordination of muscles used in daily activities like walking and bending​

  • Improves posture, circulation, and gradually rebuilds body strength, flexibility and improves movement patterns without making a pre-existing condition worse.​

  • You become more self-aware, develop a more profound experience of the mind/body connection, qwel agitation and anxiety, feel more grounded.​

  • You will feel positive changes almost immediately in your state of mind and body.  ​

  • Often leads to desireable lifestyle changes and resiliency.



  •  The initial session includes an assessment and yoga practice. You leave with exercises to do at home. Duration: 60 to 90 minutes. Cost $130.

  • Follow up sessions are usually 45 to 60 minutes and are $95. To book an appointment please call or email Joanne at 705-888-9686 

"I had been treated for Sciatica for almost eight months (physiotherapy, acupuncture, massage therapy, medications);  all without much improvement.  My physiotherapist asked me if I had heard of Yoga Therapy and suggested that I consider it. 
      At this point in time, I was desperate to try everything and anything and so I met Joanne.  I started at Inner Journey by taking her session that was especially formatted to improve spinal health/sciatica and within two weeks, I started to feel significant improvement... read more...   Jane Phair

"After thirty years of high stress employment, the 80 hour work weeks caught up to me​ and I found myself burnt out mentally and physically. I never thought that this could happen to me...
