- Joe's Yoga and Fitness
for our students to take charge of their own health and wellbeing.
I created Joe’s Yoga and Fitness because I wanted everyone to experience a place that is inviting, innovative, and offers a sustainable fitness approach.
This approach has developed over decades as a fitness and wellness instructor, influenced by my experiences of mastering a diversity of body centered activities including: varied athletics; performing as a member of a modern dance company; working as a massage therapist for 22 years; and competing for 13 years as runner and triathlete. My ultimate goal is to help our students experience a vastly improved quality of life!
My personal yoga journey started with my first yoga class in 1976! In 1990 I began practicing yoga in earnest and quickly understood the value of yoga for my mind and body — especially for meeting the physical challenges of aging. Eight years later, inspired to share yoga with others, I became a 200 RYT Certified Instructor in the Sivananda tradition. After teaching in various locations around the Toledo area, I moved my studio to its current Perrysburg location in 2004.
Always innovating, my studio became the first Hot Yoga studio in the Toledo Metro Area in 2009! After teaching classical yoga for 15 years, I encountered the YogAlign® method, which opened my eyes to the importance of practicing proper biomechanics for long-term joint stability. So, in 2013 I re-certified as a YogAlign® Instructor at Kauai Yoga School in Hawaii. Now my approach to teaching yoga is focused on emphasizing stability and mobility over extreme flexibility in a non-competitive, self-healing, mindful environment.
