Joelle Tamraz is a memoir and life writer. She’s been putting thoughts to paper ever since she learned about journaling and stream-of-consciousness writing in her eighth-grade English class. Her writing explores psychological themes, moral questions, and family dynamics.
She earned an Honors BA degree in social studies from Harvard and an MBA from INSEAD. Before writing full-time, she held senior roles in technology companies for over two decades and owned a yoga studio for ten of those years. She is also a certified life coach and a youth mentor.
Originally from the Middle East, she has lived in the US and France and now resides in the UK with her husband and two dogs. She's passionate about sustainability and loves spending time outdoors, walking, cycling, or simply being in nature.
She enjoys connecting with people and interviews authors on her youtube channel, Elevating Voices in Memoir and Fiction.
Her debut memoir, The Secret Practice: Eighteen Years on the Dark Side of Yoga, reads like a fast-paced novel and speaks to themes of mind control, manipulation, and trauma, as well as self-empowerment and healing. Recovered from New Age idealism, she no longer believes that yoga can cure all ills.
