Jodie strives to offer compassionate yoga classes, blending joyful sequencing and lighthearted instruction. Following a decade of practice and study with teachers in Australia and the United States, Jodie completed a 200 hour Ashtanga yoga teacher training program in Nicaragua with It’s Yoga International.

She has since completed the OM300/500 hour teacher training program with Cyndi Lee, as well as trainings in vinyasa flow, yin yoga, restorative yoga, pranayama and meditation. Jodie is grateful to continue her yoga and meditation studies under mentorship with her teacher, and in Ayurveda with the Himalayan Institute.

Jodie appreciates yoga as a holistic healing arts practice, providing guidance to learn more about ourselves, each other, and to live more peacefully in the world. She hopes that students arrive to class open to their infinite possibilities!

Jodie’s Classes:

Gentle Flow (All Levels, Beginners Welcome)

Thursdays from 5:15 to 6:15 pm

A slow flow practice, connecting breath with movement. Move through a gentle seated and standing flow, closing with meditation and savasana. This practice will allow plenty of time to unwind, restoring peace in mind, body and spirit. All levels welcome.

Yin Yoga (All Levels, Beginners Welcome)

Fridays from 2:15 to 3:30 pm

Yin yoga targets the connective tissues along with the energetic systems of the body through longer holds in postures (3-5 minutes). This practice cultivates the ability to observe sensation and breath. All levels welcome, especially those looking to do deep and chill out.

Warm Vinyasa (L1&2)

Fridays from 6:00 to 7:00 pm & Saturdays from 3:30 to 4:30 pm

A warm, energizing and spirited practice. Move, breathe, and find your intention to guide the weekend ahead.
