"Jo is emotionally available, and her teaching approach is grounding. If I had to describe the style of yoga she teaches, I would call it ‘Jo-ananda’, ananda meaning bliss in Sanskrit, because that’s what Jo offers… Thank you Jo for a beautiful experience!" ~ Fadela Hilali, Life Coach
"What a fantastic holiday. Everything under one amazing roof of love, passion and serenity!! The breathwork… The most valuable thing I have taken away is connecting with my breath - deep, long, cleansing breaths. You helped me so much Jo, more than you will ever know. Jo's passion for yoga and love for empowering those who practice with her, helped guide me to let go and find my balance and transform my life to become the person I want to be". ~ Julie

Dear Jo I just wanted to say a huge heart felt 'Thank You' for such an amazing, powerful, transformational week Jo and as I write I am emotional because I absolutely enjoyed every single minute of my Yoga practice. Jo is an amazing teacher, all my worries about being inflexible, overweight, inexperienced just were non existent. xxx
