Johanna Mosca, Ph.D., is an accomplished writer, yoga master and a teacher of teachers. She has extensive background in education, human resource development and public speaking. Her passion is writing to share the ancient wisdom of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras that will help every reader live in greater peace, harmony and integrity.
Johanna’s first career consisted of twenty-five years as a high school English teacher, staff developer, graduate writing instructor and educational consultant. She earned her Ph.D. in Writing Research and Theory from New York University.
In 1992, after passing two license exams to become a NYC Public High School Principal, Johanna vacationed in Sedona, AZ, and was inspired to move there. Spending fourteen months camping out in the desert forest of Sedona and doing her own Yoga on the red rocks, Johanna became inspired to launch her own retreat business, Sedona Spirit Yoga & Hiking.
Johanna is the author of two previous books, YogaLife: 10 Steps to Freedom and Cultivate Contentment: Using Ancient Wisdom to Thrive in Today’s World. Her third book, Teen Triumph: 10 Ways to a Winning Life, brings this ancient wisdom to teenagers.
Currently, Johanna enjoys leading self-renewal retreats in Sedona, Arizona, and Encinitas, California, and doing her writing, book talks and private consulting.
