About Joanna

JoAnna Ross is an accomplished yoga teacher, dancer and fitness educator from New Jersey. Her career began early, when at the age of 3 she started taking ballet and tap classes. Jazz classes soon followed, and by age 10 JoAnna began competing in the tri-state area. Trips to New York City for advanced classes were not far behind, and to help finance her continued training, JoAnna started teaching dance to young children at local studios. Kids responded to her playful energy and her passion for dance, and JoAnna soon began teaching at the competition level. After graduating from high school, she moved to NYC to pursue a full-time career in dance.
During her seven years in NYC, JoAnna enjoyed tremendous professional success. Most notably she performed on Broadway as one of the original cast members of the hit musical Footloose. JoAnna also appeared in national commercials, and guest-starred on The Rosie O’Donnell Show, The Today Show, The David Letterman Show and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
JoAnna then decided to move to Los Angeles to pursue new career opportunities. She soon found herself taking yoga classes at the Hollywood YMCA, and improv classes at the Groundlings. Little did she know at the time that improv would be a fantastic asset when it came to teaching kids yoga! After a few years of dedicated yoga practice, JoAnna enrolled in City Yoga’s Anusara teacher training program. This five-month intensive training program included classes in alignment principles, anatomy, philosophy, meditation, therapeutics, and teaching classes with an emphasis in spotting and adjusting students properly. JoAnna’s training didn’t stop there, and to this day she still takes classes all over LA and jumps into workshops whenever she can.
Once she completed her yoga teacher training, JoAnna started teaching at the Hollywood YMCA and assisting with kids’ classes at the Montessori School, Shir Hashirim. Not long afterwards JoAnna started to sub the kids classes, eventually taking over when the position became available. She has taught at Shir Hashirim for the last three years teaching children ages 2 to 6. It has been one of the best jobs as well as one of the hardest jobs!
JoAnna has been lucky enough to teach at some of the best yoga studios in Los Angeles. She continues to teach at Blackdog Yoga, The Sports Club LA, and has several private clients including well-known TV, film and music stars. She has taught yoga to people from the age of 2 to 82. Through this wonderful, fulfilling experience, she consistently finds that the young students teach her how to be a better teacher to the older ones.

I like this DVD and it is really cute.

I received this item for review purposes. My opinions are honest and I was not paid for this review.
