Jo 1/25As the owner of the Iyengar Yoga Center of the Palm Beaches, Jo has combined her passion and talent as a teacher with her vision to create a new center where the yoga community can come together to share, grow and thrive.

Jo began practicing Iyengar Yoga in 2002 after suffering numerous sports related injuries. She is a Certified Iyengar instructor as well as a Certified YogaKids instructor and holds an International Association of Yoga Therapists certification

During her world travels, Jo would travel to India to study with the Iyengars,  Swati & Rajiv Chanchani, Birjoo Mehta, and  Firooza Razvi. She has also studied with the late Karin O’Bannon, Manouso Manos, Lois Steinberg and Gabriella Giubilaro. After a motorcycle accident, Jo went to India to be in the medical class where BKS Iyengar and the teachers  taught her how to manage her injuries. For eight years she kept herself out of surgery using the knowledge she received from the Iyengar’s.   Jo’s students enjoy her lighthearted teaching style, which combines her quirky sense of humor with a passionate desire to connect with each and every student.
