Welcome to Yoga with Joel! I am a private yoga instructor in the Los Angeles area. I moved to Los Angeles in 2015 after living in Orange County for 8 years, I’m originally from Minnesota. I moved out to Southern California to get away from the cold winters and have been enjoying my time since.
I had always thought of myself to be somewhat relaxed and quiet. But I later realized that I was not and a lot of stress and tension was building up. I didn’t know how to channel it. That is, until a friend of mine suggest I take a yoga class. After my very first class, I was hooked! I felt amazing and could feel all the weight lifted off of my shoulders with every class I took. Roughly a year after my first class, I decided to go through a teacher training program at CorePower Yoga in Huntington Beach. There, I earned my 200 hour teaching certificate. Since then, I have been teaching at a number of different yoga studios, led and coached a number of different teacher training programs and have managed a yoga studio. I now teach full-time, teach private yoga sessions in the LA area and help run Yoga + Brew on the first Sundays of each month at Brewyard Beer Company in Glendale, CA.
