Josie’s yoga journey began at age 11. She’s been a practitioner and believer ever since. Hailing from tiny Sandpoint, Idaho, her passion for yoga eventually grew so strong that, at age 24, she made the decision she had to teach. In the spring of 2011 and the spring of 2013, she spent a total of two months deep in the Costa Rican rainforest learning the ancient art of yoga. Her days in Costa Rica involved deep meditation, strenuous exercise, teachings of its therapies and lots of spiders. Though she has been sharing her passion for many years, now she is fully Yoga Alliance certified with a 500RYT certification through Marianne Wells Yoga School.
Josie's love of yoga stems from the peace of mind she found when she first practiced at the age of 11. "The spiritual, mental and physical benefits that yoga provides have helped to clear my mind and keep me focused on what is important.” she says, “This power of yoga is so transformative, and it can't be explained, it can only be experienced.” It is this love for yoga that makes Josie a great ambassador for this sacred art.
