My mission is to share my passion for yoga and help integrate the benefits of a yoga practice within the community, to empower students and support women. I will achieve this by providing high quality teaching in an engaging, precise and responsible manner.
Hello, I am Jo, welcome to my website,
You have arrived at a place for wellbeing and education. I teach accessible yoga to all abilities, pre- and post- natal women, those with disabilities and baby yoga and massage. I teach through a variety of group classes and private sessions. I share interesting and relevant news through the blog section of my website to give students and clients a place for deepening their practice of yoga.
My own yoga journey began a decade ago and I have maintained a regular practice throughout that time incorporating asana, meditation, kirtan, pre- and post- natal yoga and baby yoga for my own children. Yoga has made a real difference to my overall wellbeing and has been a constant that I can always turn to as its always there.
I became a yoga teacher to make a tangible difference to people’s lives; and, through client feedback, I believe I have done this and am passionate about continuing this service. I am an appleyoga trained teacher in vinyasa krama, dynamic and hatha yoga; including yoga for pre and post natal bodies and baby massage. Vinyasa is a combination of 'vi' and 'nyasa' in Sanskrit meaning 'to place in a special way'; krama means level or option. My classes are for all bodies, regardless of ability, and are creatively themed and intelligently sequenced with precise teaching. I incorporate breath work, or pranayama, to support the meditative flow of the practice, as well as inviting students into meditation.
I am a wife and a mother to two incredible children, who have taught me more than I ever imagined already (I am sure there are many many more teachings to come!). I have practiced yoga throughout both of my pregnancies and used the techniques in labour and birth.
I continue to study the path of yoga as well as modern biomechanics of the anatomy. This allows me to teach relevant classes that combine yogic tradition with the particulars of our lives today.
I am registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance Professionals and uphold very high standards in the quality of my training and teaching as well as the way I conduct my business.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like to join my classes or talk about how yoga can support you.
Namaste (the light in me honours the light in you)
