Hi, my name is Josephine and most people call me ‘Jo’ (which is what I prefer) but often known as ‘Jo-Jo’ from my childhood days.
I’m a mother of 2 boys married to my best friend. I am a Christian Yoga Teacher and Therapist. My first yoga class dates back to early 2006 while I was still early in my Digital Marketing career. Over the years, I’ve developed a strong passion for the practise; mainly through gym classes and online videos. Ten years later, I decided to become trained as a yoga teacher and Gospel preacher and live the life of a Christian Yogi.
Now, I offer Christian yoga as part of my ministry work; spreading the Gospel and my love of Jesus whilst teaching yoga. I believe my calling has blessed me in so many ways that I am compelled to share, in some way, the love of God to all whom I teach. My yoga classes are often donation-based or volunteer work, to give Christians an opportunity to do yoga without any spiritual compromise and for those who are new to yoga altogether, an opportunity to experience it without any financial commitments.
I also run a private yoga therapy practise which infuses a faith-based component for those looking for physical or emotional healing or to make some sustainable changes to achieve a healthy lifestyle.
In between my yoga teaching and preaching, I’m your typical soccer mum running my boys to school and activities, and serving in my local church’s kids ministry.
Beyond the yoga, from as far back as I can remember, I’ve kept a diary. I don’t know what it is about keeping journals that I love – whether it’s the writing or the reading back on what I’ve written. Either ways, I have been addicted to it since my earliest memories. I still have my first diary from 7 years old. Over the years, nothing has stopped me from putting my thoughts down, with a pen or with a keyboard. Even when I was told that I should ‘live in the present’ and stop obsessing over capturing memories, my hands always find their way to paint with words. One would think I dreamed of studying journalling or authoring a book. No, I didn’t. In fact, I excelled at Science all throughout school, graduated from Computer Science and am as much of a Data Geek as I am a Bible Nerd. So, I accept God’s blessings for me as neither an expert in words nor numbers, but an amateur and lover of both.
Finally, I wind down through meditation on God’s Word, my Holy Yoga practise and ….ok, meeting girlfriends for lunch :)
Serving and breathing every moment in Him~
