Josie is inspired by the vastness of this transformational practice and is obsessed with training, studying and practicing yoga in all its diversity.
Josie stumbled into Laughing Lotus for a free class and found the studio to be priceless. She found a yoga home in this nurturing and fun community of like-minded teachers and students. She is honored to be part of the team - behind the desk, plus as a teacher.
Josie finds that yoga supports her veganism and eco-consciousness with its deep connection to the breath that we all share. Her belief that yoga is a path of action and awakening nudged her toward teaching others.
Her classes stay true to the Lotus Flow with a creative edge, attention to alignment and breath set to a thoughtfully curated playlist. She enjoys teaching people of all ages and abilities and is dedicated to creating an inclusive environment where everyone feels welcome to be where they are and play with their edge.
As a vegan sober punk fashionista with a sharp sense of humor and a love of cats, Josie hopes her classes will inspire others to find the peace within and freedom from addictive behaviors that she’s been happy to experience after 28 years of practice. She’s come a long way since she read that first Yoga paperback book and attended the one yoga class her hometown. Josie believes in the power of practice and in cultivating patience to bring happiness and freedom to all!
