Josi is a 2010 graduate of Marshall University with both her undergraduate and graduate work in Elementary and K- Adults Special Education. During her time at Marshall Josi was a cheerleader for 4 years and had a small stand in role in the movie " We are Marshall." After marrying her husband in 2011, They moved to Morgantown, West Virginia. Here she deepened her practice of yoga for 6 years. Then she and her husband moved to Sacramento, California. This is where Josi received her 200 YTT certification and Reiki Level 1 certification. Josi went on to teach corporate yoga classes after her training. "Being that far away from home made me homesick, I needed to find a home and my mat and yoga become my home." Josi states of her time living in California and Nevada.
Through the gift of yoga she practiced and found her "home" during a 2 week business trip to Australia for her husband. In Australia, Josi practiced daily and learned from the staff in Australia as she had just finished her 200 hour YTT and shared this with the staff.
"It is amazing to be able to travel to different parts of the world and still find your home with yoga."
Josi hopes to create the same experience for you as she has encountered throughout her yoga journey. "I hope for each class to feel like a journey for my students, but one that always comes back to the comforts of home"
