Johanna Wise

Johanna's work grows out of the profound impact yoga and bodywork have had on her own life. She is dedicated to helping people experience greater courage, joy, peace and strength than they believed to be possible through the practices of yoga, acroyoga and bodywork.
Johanna is a 500-hr Kripalu Yoga Teacher, a certified Acroyoga teacher, and a licensed massage therapist. She has studied numerous yoga lineages and bodywork modalities including Positional Therapy, Thai Massage, Myofascial Release, Reflexology, Reiki, Integrated Energy Therapy, Polarity and Aromatherapy.
Johanna served for 4 years as "Lead Healing Arts Therapist" at Kripalu, at which time she co-created and led trainings for the Healing Arts staff on the Kripalu Approach to Bodywork (KAB), and the signature "Kripalu Meditative Massage" currently offered in Healing Arts. KAB/ KMM draw from the teachings of the Kripalu School of Massage, integrating Kripalu yoga philosophy and bodywork for a form of bodywork that is a meditative, heart-opening practice for both giver and receiver.
Johanna teaches at Kripalu as well as several local Berkshires studios, offers workshops and retreats, and has a private practice. She is currently studying to become a yoga therapist.
