About Josie

I have been practicing yoga for 30 years, teaching for ten years, running my own boutique studio for eight of those.  And have loved teaching every class. I am also passionate about using the philosophy and techniques of yoga and meditation to harness, enhance and enjoy creative pursuits.


​My foundation training was an 18-month 700-hour Hatha/Vinyasa teacher certification. With a continuing learning and teaching philosophy draws from a broad spectrum of Yoga and other Eastern movement traditions and Mindfulness and Meditation practices.   I am particularly influenced by Insight Yoga, Yin, Vinni Yoga and Qigong.  And am lucky to have undertaken additional teacher training in these areas with world leaders, in particular, Sarah & Ty Powers - Insight Yoga & Buddhist Meditation; Paul Grilley – Founder of Yin Yoga; and Donna Farhi.  I have completed Yoga Therapy for Breast cancer and Lymphoedema training workshops with renown yoga therapist, Annette Louden and Yoga for Pain Care training and am a certified practitioner with Yoga for Pain Care, Australia. 

In tandem with my yoga practice is a growing curiosity and commitment to Insight and Mindfulness meditation. I completed my Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) teaching certification with the Mindfulness Teaching Institute of Australia (MTIA) in 2015 and weave together these complimentary wisdom traditions into classes, workshops and retreats.

My passion as a teacher is for students to integrate their practice into their daily lives.
