Josephine had her first yoga class on a slow boat to India back in the ’60s. Since then she has been on the yoga path in one form or another. Josephine and her husband, JC, served as volunteers in the Peace Corps in the early-mid ’70s. They served in the South Pacific. From there they moved to the Monadnock region of New Hampshire. Josephine and her husband built their nest on twelve acres of forest land. They build a passive solar home to feel in harmony with nature. Their four children romped the woods in the dramatic four seasons of New England. Today their children all practice or teach yoga. In the early 90’s Josephine’s teacher, Sarvani, said “It is time for you to teach”. Josephine always felt proud that she became a teacher in the traditional way, which was to practice with a teacher for a long time, and then the teacher launches you off to teach. With that said, Josephine did go to teacher training at Kripalu in the Berkshires. Josephine has become a well-seasoned yoga teacher. She has taught gentle candlelight yoga, moderate yoga, beginner yoga, vigorous yoga, special needs yoga for back care, positive mental health, to build strong bones, and for folks with round bodies. She has studied and taught many workshops such as Yoga for Stress Reduction, Yoga for Eye Care, Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga. Josephine has taken folks on yoga retreat to Peru, India, and Samoa. She has taught TTC in Bali, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and in her home of New Hampshire. They are all in Josephine’s pocket of expertise. Now she has added Iron Yoga!!!!
