Josie is one of the greatest yoga instructors I have had the opportunity to work with. She is very attentive to your abilities in movement and helpful to correcting any doubt you may have to those movements. Josie keeps a soothing environment where it is easy to focus on the breathing and relaxation of the mind and body. Again, a great instructor.
I recently started 1:1 online gentle yoga sessions with Josie. At first I was not sure how this would work, since it was my first time doing online yoga classes, but I am so glad I did it. I reached out to Josie because I had taken one of her classes in Oakland before and loved it. I was also going through a really tough emotional time in my life and needed healing. Josie's class has healed me in many ways. I felt better and better after each class. My body became less sore. My mind awakened with clear thinking. I connected back to myself, especially when doing the warrior pose. I received so much more than I expected. Josie is a magnificent yoga & meditation instructor and I am grateful.
I cannot praise Josie enough as a yoga instructor. We are fortunate enough to have her come to our office monthly and she transforms a usually hectic environment into a serene oasis. As someone who has done yoga, but not a regular, I greatly appreciate how she meets students at their own abilities. She encourages us to listen to our bodies and demonstrates variations so we are all are active, but not overwhelmed. Her high level of knowledge and her respect for the practice is apparent in every class. I encourage you to seek out her classes.
