At a very young age Josephine was influenced by the arts and philosophy of the Hindu culture, including yoga and meditation. Her mother was an avid participant in east Indian culture and often visited Ashrams and pujas. Chanting and other practices were a norm in her household, setting this example for her daughter, Josephine grew up with a profound connection to the practices of yoga and meditation. At an early age Josephine discovered Hatha yoga and made the practice and study of asana a part of her life. As she travelled and grew she was blessed to have many teachers who inspired her to deepen her study. She also took a month long journey through India where she had the privilege of taking instruction from the one hundred and four year old Swami Nanda Ji Maharaj and Iyengar teacher Suryans Thakur.
“It is a never ending process that I have dedicated myself to. I believe yoga practice is more than what we do on our mats; It is a way of living and one of many paths which opens the self to unique potential” Josephine’s philosophy on yoga, is that she is the fortunate one, who is given the opportunity to share and inspire others to practice. Her style of teaching is fundamentally alignment based and she aims to create a safe environment so that the asanas are fun, flowing, and at times challenging where her students leave feeling both nurtured and invigorated.
