Jonna Bracken was introduced to the practice of Yoga in 1995, when she took her first class in India. After returning to the United States she continued to study and began teaching in 2000. She opened her own studio in Seattle, WA in 2004, and most recently taught in San Francisco. Jonna has been trained in several lineages of the Yoga practice and now studies exclusively Prajna Yoga with Tias Little. She recently completed a degree in Health Science from the University of Massachusetts at Boston. She lives in New Bedford with her husband, her grandmother and her Pomeranian, Cricket.
The strength of Jonna's teaching lies in her attention to detail and her compassionate approach to individual needs. Her intuitive ability to see how structure and form work together in the body leads her to many insights for those who take her classes. Jonna hopes that each student will walk away with a deeper understanding of themselves and the yogic path.
“She has a confidence and poise that are crucial in the role of teaching Yoga” - Tias Little
