Joana Allis

Fairfax, CA
Favorite Song/Artist:
I love curating playlists for class - mixing some soulful folk with international beats and maybe a little reggae – Luedji Luna, Erykah Badu, Valerie June, Sudan Archives, tend to sneak their way in more often than not.
Odd Fact:
After living in Brazil for almost ten years, I moved back to California and chose to come to LA to do teacher training at One Down Dog – loving the life ODD and LA have opened up to me.
My Sign:
My Class Style:
 I am in constant search of discovering how and where we find belonging and share this journey with my students, leading classes that tailor to each student while opening space for exchange between them, inspiring exploration and introspection, and always accompanied by a heavy dose of Brazilian-music-filled playlists.

I came to yoga to find a place to pause from what was an increasingly overwhelming work life. I stayed, and ended up training as a teacher, because of the way it made me feel, the ability to be at home in my body and my breath, to escape from the chatter. I chose to teach so I could translate that same feeling to others, to help find space to breathe and feel in their bodies, to form connections, to share thoughts and themes that resonate with me, and hopefully find a few smiles along the way. I truly believe that yoga is a tool for everyone, for every body, every experience and am dedicated to sharing it. I completed my 200-hour teacher training at One Down Dog and prenatal training with Kim Neer at One Down Dog and Alice Sicuro in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I am constantly searching for more opportunities to learn and grow; I see each class I teach as an opportunity to discover something new with my students and I can’t get enough of it.
