How it All Began...
Self Love Yoga was founded by Instagram influencer JoAnnah Thompson (aka Jo Jo) after years of practicing yoga, and the strong desire to spread yoga to others. Self Love Yoga was initially a small studio in Niagara Falls, NY; but after realizing certain students couldn't attend classes because of their hectic work schedule, she realized there was a need for yoga access at home. Therefore Self Love Yoga was rebirthed!

JoAnnah Thompson (Jo Jo)
Owner, 200-hr Hatha Yoga Instructor
Jo Jo has been doing yoga since 2012 in her small bedroom after ordering a yoga DVD online because she couldn't afford yoga classes. Soon she was able to attend local classes but found herself excelling quite quickly. To challenge herself the more, Jo Jo took her practice back to her home and never looked back! She began to post her progress and inspirational messages on Instagram and surprisingly gained a big following. After realizing the positive effect of yoga, Jo Jo decided to learn more about the practice and became a certified 200-hr yoga instructor.
She initially began teaching at a local studio. Soon she would open up Self Love Yoga in Niagara Falls, NY. Jo Jo centers her classes around affirmations and women empowerment—through engaging music such as Hip Hop, R&B, and Trap Music. She gives credit to yoga to help overcome anxiety, depression, and even self-esteem issues and hopes to inspire people to do the same.
