Spotlight Classes have specific focus on one particular aspect of yoga with far greater teacher / student interaction to aid learning. KPY periodically invites expert guest teachers to take Spotlight Classes ensuring students get a chance to learn from different expert teachers and broaden their knowledge.

Joan’s grounded teaching style creates space for students to deepen their personal journey while aligning with teachings of true yogic traditions. Joan’s teachings come from an organic and intuitive place, as she draws upon the joyful study of Ashtanga and Iyengar, Ayurveda, and meditation.
With over 20 years of experience leading retreats, trainings, and workshops worldwide – 15 of which as a distinguished YogaWorks senior teacher – Joan recently brought her expertise to Wanderlust. As Director of Teacher Trainings, Joan collaborates with teachers who are experts in their field of study with the goal to create an eclectic training program for students at any level.
