Basile Yoga and counseling services are stellar! I've witnessed the awesome work Joanna does with clients. She not only provides yoga that is tailored to where the client is in terms of skill and level of care, she is also adept at working with clients when they are feeling overwhelmed or challenged. I have seen her walk many clients from crises to acceptance and even towards enthusiasm for their journey. Cannot recommend Joanna highly enough!
