Yoga really began to be a regular part of Jo's life after the birth of her three children. What began as an avenue to explore movement and relaxation led her on a path to discover so much more. Jo completed her Teacher Training in 2009. Since that time she has felt blessed to have met so many wonderful mentors and teachers along the way who have influenced her teachings and way of being. Jo went on to study with the Australian Institute of Yoga Therapy (AIYT) in 2010 and graduated as a Yoga Therapist in 2011. She feels passionate about helping people find ways to rest deeply, and has found that meeting the person where they are in any given moment is the true gift of Yoga Therapy. She believes that this is the foundation for building relationships which is at the core of any healing work. Jo was introduced to iRest in 2012 by Senior teacher and trainer Fuyoko Toyota at an Australian Yoga Therapy conference. She went on to complete her Level 1 and Level 2 trainings with Richard Miller, and became a certified iRest teacher under the wonderful guidance of senior teacher and iRest trainer Leigh Blashki in August, 2018. iRest has been like a shining beacon of light since that first introduction 6 years ago. It has opened up a compassionate and welcoming way of meeting previously denied aspects of herself, which has been a source of healing and an ever expanding heart. Jo continues to be passionate about helping people find deep rest. She offers iRest in the community where she lives, as well as general and restorative yoga classes and workshops which weave the magic of iRest throughout. iRest seemed to open up a mystery inherent in each moment and a learning that feels ever expanding and alive. Jo is eternally grateful for having discovered iRest
