book a class with joanne

joanne gagne

Jo started walking at 2 yrs old and dancing at 3! She’s been dancing ever since. She was born in the Ottawa region and moved to the beautiful Okanagan in 1986. From her love of jazz & interpretive dance as well as competitive ballroom dancing she added group fitness instructor to her repertoire in the mid 80s. After years of experience enjoying teaching classes and working as well as dental hygienist, she sustained a serious lower back injury that required surgery. It is after this occurrence that she became mat certified in Pilates and felt, through & through, the importance of a strong core as a foundation for all fitness and life! It is from this place of passion that she created and opened Bodies on Power in 2008.  She is passionate about sharing her fitness knowledge with her class participants and pass the message of functional fitness for the ‘long haul’! She connected with Sheila of oranj in the Spring of 2017 and with growth in mind, transformed BOP to it’s new incarnation as oranj! She is thrilled to now be teaching Pilates, Barre, Group fitness & Dance at oranj. She loves spending time with good friends, her dog Kooper and of course Conrad – her sweetie:)
