About Me

Well hello. Big thanks for coming to check me out. So… Who am I? Big soul question. Ok. It really just comes down to this. I’m Josie, I’m a journalist (hack, writer, messenger – take your pick) and now also a wellness seeker with a mission to help you redefine the way you think about your health, live life, take care of yourself, the people you love, where you live, the world – each and every day. I studied Ayurveda and Yoga in California with Deepak Chopra and qualified as a Chopra certified instructor and wellbeing educator in 2016. I’ve been through some big changes
personally.

But what’s most exciting is my story is not over and somehow I’m here, talking to you and ready to share some amazing material, classes and connections that in my heart I believe can help bring you any change you seek.

If you feel inspired to find out what yoga and the practices of yoga can do to to add value to your life and bring health, wellness and happiness into your world I invite you to get connected, and become part of a Yoga Local tribe. Dive in. Get access to weekly tips, support and community – right here FREE online. Or, come and check out a Yoga Local class or course.

FAQs

Simple answer no. Would you ask if you had to run 5K before starting a running programme? ‘Nuff said.

Let’s get this straight from the get go. You don’t have to move like, look like sound like, walk like, talk like, or be anyone else other than you to enjoy Yoga. Yoga is for everyone, and can be practiced anywhere, doing anything. If you choose to do it with others our Yoga Local programmes are just one way to experience Yoga and uncover the whole of you.

Find your Yoga. Book a programme, try out a class that’s just right for you or join the Yoga Local community to enjoy advanced notice of classes, programmes as well as articles, news, events and inspiring support.

Not a lot. A mat and some comfortable loose fitting gear to wear. Socks off! For Yoga Local classes we ask that you bring a blanket/towel to use as a prop. It will also keep you super cozy during relaxation. Yes, you might snore – and that’s ok too. That’s it.

Here’s the background. Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old healing system founded in ancient India, and offers a guide for a life of happiness, vitality, love and purpose.

Ayurveda tells us that to experience health we have to fully integrate all aspects of our life and being, the material and non material – mind, body and soul. Otherwise we’re missing something – merely grasping at shadows. It’s a heady and fascinating conversation but has amazing implications for our wellbeing. There’s so much more to know and it’s all here at Yoga Local to discover. Follow the conversations, the science and the updates by signing up to our newsletter. Or dive deeper and start to redefine what it feels to feel great, fulfilled and happy by booking on to a Perfect Health Programme. Here you will discover all the Ayurvedic tools that can enhance your physical and emotional well being, help you make more conscious choices and enliven your connection between mind, body and spirit.

They Said It, Not Us.
