Be brave, be fierce, be free is Jonelle’s personal mantra and an invitation she extends to everyone who practices with her. She’s passionate about movement & spiritual studies which makes her an eternal student.
Jonelle dabbled with Ashtanga in 2004 when she was pregnant with her daughter Francesca. After a long break from yoga, in 2011 she began practicing with a purpose. While going through a difficult divorce she found her yoga practice really helped her get her life back. It was liberating, invigorating and healing.
In March 2014 she left London behind and went to India to complete her 200 hour yoga teacher training. She’s completed over 1000 hours of training and is certified in Ashtanga, Hatha, Hot, Mandala, Qi Gong, Rocket, Vinyasa & Yin yoga. Jonelle teaches live & online classes, retreats, mentorship programmes & teacher trainings. She is active in the movement to make the yoga & wellness industry accessible, diverse, equitable and anti-racist.
Her classes are set to an urban sound track which is reflective of her roots and her passion for music, creativity and fluidity in life. From growing up in Philadelphia, living in London, NYC, LA and travelling the world extensively she brings an international vibration and an authenticity into classes which are edgy and filled with a lot laughter. She enjoys teaching inclusive classes and firmly believes ‘Yoga is for EVERYBODY’.
