Breathing is at the core of Joelle’s attention.
The way we feel affects the way we breathe and, if we become aware of our breath, we can change the way we feel and the way we perceive ourselves, our environment and the way we respond to life.
“Movement is Life. Life is a process. If you improve the quality of movement, you improve the quality of Life itself.”
