About Me

 

Josephine au

Hi, my name is Josephine and most people call me ‘Jo’ or ‘Jo-Jo’ from my childhood days.  I’m the Founder of Grace x Strength, a mother of 2 boys married to my best friend and currently living in Melbourne, Australia.

After 600+ hours of yoga training since 2015 and lots of teaching, Grace x Strength was founded in 2017 from a burning passion to help people experience yoga as a way to deliver strength, balance, healing and spiritual depth – a discerned calling from God.  I also serve as the Australian Regional Leader on the Global Leadership team of Holy Yoga, the yoga school that I trained with.

I started my career as a digital marketer and held leadership roles with a number of global technology and media businesses before entering into a different season of life with the birth of my children. The joys and challenges of adapting to motherhood and career has fuelled my passion to empower women in business and wellness.

Honoured to be the first registered Christian Yoga Teacher on Yoga Australia, my work has been featured on Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, Canberra Times, Brisbane Times, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), Salvation Army magazine (Warcry) and 2CR Chinese Radio and Wesley Mission. Now I frequently guest speak at various conferences.

In between my yoga teaching and entrepreneurial ventures, I’m your typical soccer mum running my boys to school activities or hanging out with my girlfriends!

  1. curious, are there any classical yoga or other texts taught in the training you undertook? is there a comparative philosophy and attempt to understand the epistemology and ontological nature of the yoga-samkhya system and its relation to tantra, vedanta, etc? curious to know more about your course book. 🙂

    • Great questions! And thanks for connecting. In short, we wouldn’t go into the depths of study as a classical yoga course would in Holy Yoga but there are definitely studies of the foundations and the history of the classical yoga philosophy. It would be more basic than in depth though. Feel free to email me if you have any more questions! Blessings
