Jo is an architect and Blissology yoga teacher based in Nelson.
Having spent decades in the corporate world, she understands how stress impacts us and the benefits of yoga, meditation and mindfulness to create a balanced life.
She believes that Yoga is all about connection, to oneself and to others and her teaching style reflects this.
Her strategy and design practice The Flow Company was founded after Blissology teacher training in Bali in 2017 when she had an "aha" moment about how to incorporate Eastern Philosophies into spatial design, to create spaces and places with meaning that connect and inspire people. This led to the creation of Energy Based Design, a philosophy that considers our energetic exchange with the environment and designs to creates spaces of different energy which allow people to move through their day taking and giving what they need to maximise their wellbeing, empowering them to be productive and happy.
My life mission:
