Jodee was initially drawn to yoga in 1998 for the benefits of relieving back pain. The feeling of physical well-being led to an awareness of how yoga can nurture the mind and body. This personal experience fuels Jodee’s wish to share yoga with each student willing to learn.
Jodee has studied with senior teachers Matthew Sweeney and Iain Grysak. In 2013, Jodee completed 7 weeks of study with Iain Grysak in Whitehorse. Recently Jodee has begun studing with Fiona Stang. She is a registered Yoga Teacher through Yoga Alliance, receiving RYT 200 in 2008 and currently E-RYT 200, with over 2500 hours of teaching experience. Jodee is also the lead Instructor for the Teacher Training program at The Yoga Path.
Through experience with personal injuries, balancing yoga practice with life and overcoming challenges in her own yoga practice, Jodee has developed the ability and compassion to assess and teach yoga in a truly accessible method. Common encouragement from Jodee: “Rather than wanting a good practice or the right circumstances, just begin practicing yoga and the details will work themselves out as you begin to feel the benefits”.
