For the past 15 years Jo has dedicated her life to the yogic lineage of Krishnamacharya; whose teachings became the gateway to advanced studies in: Insight Meditation, Shiatsu & 5 Element Theory, Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga, Anatomy & Physiology and Core Shamanism. The root of her personal practice began as a child in the remote deserts of Western Australia, where the eternal landscape and aboriginal dreamtime lit the fire within her as a seeker of life’s truths.

Jo’s class creates an opportunity for you to dive deeply into your own inner waters and explore nature, truth, universal connectivity and to practice radical self-care. Los Angeles has been a home base to her vinyasa flow roots where she has studied with Annie Carpenter, Chad Hamrin, Max Strom, Shiva Rea, Erich Schiffmann and Lisa Walford. Jo teaches a signature meditative lyrical flow and is the founding teacher at Yogaglo, the world’s first planetary cyber yoga school. ‘Power and Purpose’ the second of her four part DVD series called ‘High Vibrations Yoga’ is soon to be released.
