Jo has had a successful career, of over 22 years, in a commercial environment. At this time she started practicing yoga to help keep her positive, fit and healthy in a stressful, client based environment. It worked. She was always complemented on her positive approach and did not need to take time off sick. Luck maybe, but Jo put this down to practicing Yoga.
In 2006 Jo decided to follow her heart and concentrate on teaching Yoga and Well-being on a full-time basis. She misses her colleagues and the hustle and bustle of office life but enjoys the benefits that Yoga gives to those she teaches.
Jo has been influenced by many teachers in particular Hilary Norman, Christa Gaskell, Jodie Lawrance, Liz Lark, Janet Bond, Jenny Beeken, Ruth Gilmore, Amarajyoti, Shantipriya, Padma McIntyre, Maggie Brizzi and thanks them for sharing their knowledge, encouraging and inspiring her on her personal Yoga Journey.
Jo never forgets when teaching that Yoga is about the Student and loves to see the benefits Yoga brings to all who come to it.
Once on the Yoga path, Jo was hooked and she continues to study to improve her knowledge of the subject. Some of the courses/workshops Jo has found to be particularly useful: -
