Joanne Fisher (Yanke) lives to share her expertise of health and wellness with others.
A desire to delve deeper into holistic energetic healing modalities has led Joanne to BodyTalk. Joanne loves how BodyTalk works to address the whole person physically, emotional, spiritually and energetically. BodyTalk takes into account all aspects of the person; their environment, emotions and belief systems and helps the body to release them so physical and emotional health can be restored. With Joanne's passion for all things baby she quickly discovered how BodyTalk can help with fertility, pregnancy, birth and baby.
Joanne experienced the benefits of prenatal BodyTalk & Yoga herself and the tools it provided to aid in natural birth. Joanne was blessed with the amazing experience of a home water births with both her sons in 2012 and 2017. She continues to witness how BodyTalk has helps her family adapt with the second addition and stress it took on the eldest and well as keeping everyone healthy and happy. Through all her studies it became very clear that stress on babies inutero and in the first 3 years of life when the brain is developing rapidly is the most detrimental long term. Through BodyTalk and Infant Sleep Education Joanne helps moms and babies de-stress and set the stage for optimal development and attachment.
Joanne began teaching yoga in 2006 and has expanded her field of knowledge through numerous disciplines of yoga. Her career began as a Certified Personal Trainer and YogaFit instructor while completing her Bachelors degree in Kinesiology (Exercise Science). This blossomed into a love of everything yoga. Joanne went on a jouney, completing the Yoga Alliance 200 hour Power Vinyasa Teacher Training with the Maru Yoga in South Korea and 150 hour Intensive at the Agama Esoteric School in Thailand which covered traditional yogic philosophy, spiritualism, chakras, cleansing and healing. During this journey Joanne also discovered Emotional Freedom Technique as a powerful healing tool for herself and clients. This therapy technique has become a main staple in her birth workshop and for her 'Yoga for Fertility' class in particular and was the stepping stone into BodyTalk.
