JoAnn Portalupi


I was a little nervous about my first yoga experience but JoAnn put me right at ease. JoAnn has a very calm and gentle approach to her teaching. She guides you through breathing and the positions so you understand the movements and their purpose. I loved taking yoga classes with JoAnn!

JoAnn stepped into her first yoga class twenty years ago.  While she didn’t realize at the time she had found the practice that would shape and sustain her through life, she knew enough to keep coming back. In 2016 she traveled to India to deepen her practice. She completed a 200 hour teacher training certification from the Himalayan Yoga Ashram in Rishekesh and most recently completed another 200 hour training with the Hard & the Soft Yoga Institute at Yoga in ME.  JoAnn is also certified as a Y12SR space holder and is excited to be bringing this practice to Yoga in ME. 

When off the mat she uses the energy she gains from yoga to paint, hike the white mountains, travel and enjoy time with her family, including two high-energy and adorable grand sons.
