Hi, I’m Josie!
Thanks for visiting my site!
I'm happy and inspired to offer you the healing practices that have had such a profound impact on my own journey towards health and wholeness! My work is motivated by a genuine passion for personal, cultural and global transformation. My prayer and vision is that we all rise up and become the light and healing our world so dearly needs.
I received my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Certification from Center for Yoga in 2004, participated in the Work-scholar Program at Esalen Institute in 2006, and earned my B.A. from Naropa University in 2007. My major was Traditional Eastern Arts with a 1,000 hour Yoga Teacher Training Concentration, my minor was Somatic Psychology. In 2008 I graduated from The Institute of Psycho-Structural Balancing with a 550 hour Massage Therapist Certification. That same year I lived at a wellness center in Auroville, India where I taught yoga and dance. In 2010 I graduated from The Institute for Integrative Nutrition with professional training to practice Holistic Health Coaching. I then graduated from Sofia University in 2013 with my M.A. in Transpersonal Psychology and a specialization in Transpersonal Life Coaching. In 2014 I created a yoga DVD titled The Yoga of Food: A Whole Person Approach to Eating and in 2016 I created a meditation CD titled Body Love, Soul Purpose. In 2017 I co-founded Body Love Soul Purpose as a women’s empowerment organization and in 2018 I was honored to join the Board of Directors for my sister Rafaelle's non-profit, Naretoi. Over the years I’ve led yoga retreats in California, Greece, Hawaii, Africa, and Costa Rica.
Drawing on 16 years of experience, I currently practice and teach in Los Angeles.
