Johanna understands and accepts the shadow sides of life, yet makes space for fun and beauty through her company. Developing virtues creatively helps a person to accept oneself fully and, consequently, allow other people to be who they are. We resort to vices because they help us to achieve temporary happiness. Personal integrity is the surest way of reaching real joy in this world. Seal your life with virtuous creativity to live in an exclusively joyful and meaningful way.

As a trainer Johanna empowers her clients to find a blank paper, pen and a joyful mindset to sketch their dreams come true.

Johanna Maria Davies became conscious of the many benefits of Yoga in her life over fifteen years ago. Yoga stretches your limbs and limits gently yet firmly. In September 2008 Johanna qualified as a Sivananda Yoga teacher in Aluenda, Zaragoza, Spain and trained further in the Bahamas in 2010.

In Johanna Maria's classes you will be helped through the stages of all the elements in an informative way, with generous amounts of encouragement, care and commitment. Johanna also loves to talk about yogic philosophy and the benefits of yogic lifestyle for living a more fulfilling life. It is the holistic nature of yoga that appealed to her in the same ways as her studies in sociology. Breathing, meditation and relaxation are important aspects of yoga to Johanna Maria. Read here how you can become also a better dancer through learning to breathe better.

Dance

"When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It's to enjoy each step along the way." – Wayne Dyer

Pari päivää sitten tuntematon lapsi heitti minua vahingossa lelulla suoraan silmään. Se sai minut taas muistamaan, kuinka arvaamatonta elämä on. Näkökyvyn voin menettää koska tahansa, kuin myös kykynsä liikkua, jopa hengittää. Nautitaan kiitollisena jokaisesta hetkestä, kun saamme tanssia tätä elämän tanssia! Sain viime kevään kurssieni päätyttyä aivan ihanaa palautetta. Tässä yksi niistä: "Olen aina tosi onnellinen tunneillasi. <3 Et koskaan sano pahasti, vaikka oppilas ei ihan heti oppisikaan asiaa vaan ohjaat oikeaan suuntaan ja kehut sekä kannustat, kun hän onnistuu. Tämä on minulle tärkeää tanssiopetuksessa. Sinusta huokuu rakkautesi työhösi ja sen myötä oppilaatkin ovat hyvällä mielellä. Jos joskus olen ollut tosi stressaantunut töistä tullessa perjantaina, on tunne unohtunut täysin tunnin aikana ja viikonlopun voi aloittaa iloisin mielin. =) On toki toinenkin syy miksi olen onnellinen tunneillasi. Se tulee siitä, että elän silloin unelmaani. Minulle tanssi on tarkoittanut teini-ikäisestä asti itseni ja tunteiden ilmaisukeinoa. Tanssi on ollut tapa tuntea jotain syvällistä. Noin 15 vuotta sitten kuitenkin kehoni teki tepposet enkä pystynyt enää tanssimaan. Se oli kova paikka sillä samalla menetin liikunta- ja työkyvyn muutenkin, kun sairastuin hankalaan neurologiseen sairauteen. Olin todella pohjalla, kun minulle tärkeät asiat vietiin kertaheitolla pois. Sopivassa suhteessa elämän stressittömyys, rentoutuminen, hyvä ravinto, spesifit liikeharjoitteet sekä tanssi kuntoutusmuotona. Näillä metodeilla sain kuntoutettua itseni terveeksi uudelleen ja sinun tuntisi olivat kuntoutumisen aikana olennainen osa harjoittelua. On todella palkitsevaa, kun oma sitkeys ja usko parempaan palkitaan näin isosti. Toivon, että tästä tarinasta joku muukin saisi tarmokkuuden tarttua rattiin olemalla oman elämänsä kuljettaja pelkääjän penkillä istumisen sijaan. Matkan onnellisuuteen voisi aloittaa vaikkapa sinun tanssikurssillasi tai yksilöllisellä coachingilla. Johanna, jatka samaan tyyliin valitsemallasi uralla. Olen ikuisesti kiitollinen avustasi matkallani kohti terveyttä ja onnellisuutta! <3" Tervetuloa mukaan! Lisätietoja: www.virtuousarts.com Kuva: Shanshan Gong
