Joan Greenwood
Joan Greenwood is the founder of the LovingKindness Week in Cleveland Ohio. She is also recognized in this city as a respected InterPlay Leader inTraining. Joan was born in Jamaica. Joan's Caribbean upbringing led her to develop her passion for movement, her love of nature and her embodied learning skills to support others to be able to tune into the wisdom of their own body. Joan Greenwood's academic history includes a degree in Human Services from Bunker Hill College, and two Bachelor of Science degrees, one in Sports Management from the American University and the other degree in Health and Wellness from Kaplan University. Having been an InterPlayer since 2014, Joan's skillfulness manifests in her teaching others how to be joyful, how to develop playfulness skills, how to honor their own Body Spirit, and how to have the experience of loving their own body more deeply. Joan's students learn to be aware of the frequencies of energy vibrations in their body as they grow in developing forms of dance movements, and mindfulness breathing practices. It can be said of her programs that many participants may learn to experience the wisdom of their own body creating healing within themselves and for the well being of others.
