Joanne Avison C-IAYT
Joanne Avison is a yoga teacher and therapist (C-IAYT) and author of the book YOGA: Fascia Anatomy and Movement, (Handspring 2015) as well as co-founder and director of the Art of Contemporary Yoga Teacher Training School, (AOCY) accredited worldwide by Yoga Alliance (USA), Yoga Federation of India, European Yoga Alliance and IPTI. Joanne is also a Structural Integration teacher/practitioner. Her considerable experience in both movement and manual therapy inspired the school’s unique approach to yoga, applied structural anatomy and philosophy. Joanne is also a CMED Graduate (2004) and has studied extensively in human development as well as specialising in soft tissue and the links between archetypal behaviour and psychosomatic patterning. Her passion is biotensegrity and how it makes sense of non-linear biologic forms, such as humans being in moving bodies. Indeed, it links many aspects of yoga, from the physical postures to the esoteric teachings.
