"Wow had a wonderful experience at the Vision Casting and Grace Flow Workshop in Melbourne! Thankyou so much Jo and Alyssa for running this workshop. Such godly and gifted women you are. Our breath is so important because it is a gift from God, how true! It had been quite some time since I had done yoga, now realise how much I have missed it- and the benefits it is to your mind, body and spirit. "
~ Kimberley Gorfine, Nurse, 23rd March 2018
"After having 2 knee surgeries in the past year, I was left with little to no mobility in my hips or knees. It made my athletic life very difficult. I have consistently worked with Alyssa for 3 months, and I have not only regained lost mobility, I have drastically increased my range of motion in my hips, shoulders, chest and knees. This is the best my joints have ever felt. I thoroughly recommend you try out her classes; for me, it was the best decision I've made all year."
~ Nicholas Teskantas, Martial Artist, 16th August 2018
"I have attended yoga classes before but this was my first time experiencing a Christ-centered one and it was a refreshing experience. I enjoyed meditating in God's words as Jo & Alyssa guided us with different poses with grace + flow. The workshop was organised with so much love and I'm blessed to be part of this community. It is a very holistic way to connect to our body, mind, soul + spirit."
~ Melissa Leong, Life Coach, 20th March 2018
"I attended the Vision Casting and Grace Flow Yoga Workshop. I was seriously impressed by Jo and Alyssa - they were so welcoming, encouraging. knowledgeable and they challenged us on the mat. Jo connected our practice to the Word beautifully, and Alyssa went through posture breakdowns which were so helpful. I'm so looking forward to attending regular classes and connecting with other women a part of the Christian Yoga movement in Melbourne. Thank you for an amazing day ladies."

“Having helped Jo in some of her Holy Yoga lessons at Wesley Mission, I am blown away by the authenticity and care she shows to her students. Jo’s knowledge of Chair Yoga and her ability to beautifully interweave bible teachings and values into her yoga lessons are remarkable. It was clear that she has earned the love and respect of her students, because of her genuineness in helping her students. I would definitely recommend practising with her if you have the chance to!”
~ Rachel Pan, Yoga Teacher, 2nd May 2017
“Josephine’s yoga classes are perfect for all levels. She leads her classes well at a good, calming pace and has a great knack for making each student feel comfortable but stretched at the same time. Jo is a great yoga practitioner of course, but what I particularly like about Jo’s classes is that I walk out feeling very relaxed but energized every time!”
~ Carol Yee, Brand Manager, 1st May 2017
"I started taking lessons with Alyssa purely for physical reasons after realising my posture was becoming more stooped and I was experiencing upper back pain and shoulder stiffness for most of the day. What I’ve experienced and gained is so much more. With each pose and lesson line-up, I find myself getting stronger, more flexible and can hold a good posture for longer periods of the day. With each lesson theme and each session, I have discovered subtleties in my character and my fears that I’ve never been conscious of, which I now work on improving in my everyday life. This dedicated hour each week that I have committed to for the past few months has indeed been a gift that keeps on giving."
~ Elaine Phua, Doctor, 2 February 2018
“Jo is an annointed leader in the Australian and global yoga community, both on and off the mat, and you will be so blessed by her teaching. Yoga means ‘union’ and Jo brings an truly annointed union of heart, mind, soul and strength to her practice, and will gently guide you to do the same through her inspirational teaching. Jo brings strength, grace and creativity to her sequencing – you will be nourished and enriched physically, emotionally and spiritually by her classes. Through Jo’s pure love of the practice you will be encouraged to find new joy and freedom on the mat, I can’t wait for you to experience it!!!”

“I enjoyed my classes with Jo. She is an excellent instructor, extremely well experienced and most importantly she looks after each of her students. Highly recommended.”
~ Chanel Lam, Financial Analyst, 28th April 2017
“I love Holy Yoga with Jo! She is clear with her directions and caters the class to all levels of students. During the classes, she constantly encourages me to keep expanding my capacity physically, mentally and spiritually. I really enjoyed how she would use a verse from the Bible or a quote to meditate on during the classes and keep reminding us of the intention within the different poses practiced. Holy Yoga gives me whole new way to have quiet devotion time and draw deep from God’s love.
Classes with Alyssa definitely leave my body toned in all the right places! I love the feeling of my core, legs and glutes feeling like they had a good work out the day after!! Her classes cater to all levels because she always give alternative positions for beginners to advanced levels!! Can't wait till my next class!!”
~ Roxy Leung, Founder of Salt + Glow, 5th December 2016
“Jo is a beautiful spirit filled Holy Yoga teacher and a very special person with a massive heart. Her class is guided with clear instructions, a supportive & stimulating environment.
I am very grateful to have attended her class whilst visiting Sydney and am very inspired to share similar Holy yoga concepts in my classes.
I highly recommend Jo’s classes to you to open your deeper spiritually!”

"Loved the class. Alyssa pushed me just that little bit further than I thought I could push myself. She utilised the whole hour and did quick stretches between exercises as short breaks. Great knowledge of how to correct posture and make stretches/exercises harder or easier according to your level. Will definitely be back for another class next week!"
~ Jessica Yim, Radiographer at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, 7th October 2016

~Linda Hemmings-Cooke, Early Childhood Teacher, 15th August 2016

"Alyssa 是一位對瑜伽充滿熱情的導師。 一開始她是我的Pilates instructor, 她非常的friendly, 上她的課讓我覺得好放鬆，每次遇到困難的動作，她都會耐心的教導。我們有着共同的信仰，當我知道她想要進修Holly Yoga, 我是100%的支持她。因為我們都有着相同的目標，希望通過Holy Yoga, 讓更多的人認識我們的神。Alyssa 現在不仅僅是我的瑜珈導師，更像是我的朋友。"

“Thank you beautiful Jo for an amazing Holy Yoga class. It is a wonderful journey to look within ourself, aligning our physical body and reconnect with God. Thanking Him for what he provided us and seeking His guidance for what is yet to come. It was a totally relaxing and happy experience!!”
~ Cheryl Lee, Beautician, Life Coach & Entrepreneur, 16th October 2015
“Jo is indeed a heaven sent! For ages, I have been on numerous try outs to keep myself fit and healthy, however it didn’t appeal that much to get my commitment towards continuing on until I have been in Holy Yoga. I have tried the initial class, and with that one hour – it felt eternity and had regained my sanity! You get to exercise in the form of yoga, be able to meet new people, a highly positive environment, an escape from the crazy world, and the most is you get to reconnect yourself with God – i guess it did tick all the boxes for me! Really looking forward to the classes – so now I say bring it on Sunday!”
~ Cristina Yumul, Account Manager, 20th September, 2015
“Absolutely loved my Holy Yoga Class! Such a refreshing experience! I loved that we were able to reflect on God’s word throughout the class and enjoy His presence through the music and the movements. it was my first yoga experience and i am in love! Thank God for Holy Yoga Australia! This is just what we need! with such a busy life style and so many things going on these days, Holy Yoga is a must! Thank you Jo!“
~ Fideliz Cruz, Personal Stylist at FidelizCruz.com, 8th September, 2015
“I thoroughly enjoyed my first yoga class with Jo. Life can be quite hectic sometimes and having a chance to meditate on God’s words while doing yoga poses that is good for the body, I think, is an awesome combination and something that I am looking forward to doing on a regular basis. We had the class on a Sunday afternoon and it was definitely a great way to end the week and get myself ready for the following week both physically and spiritually. I highly recommend Jo’s holy yoga class!“
~ Pia O’Connell, IT Executive, 5th September, 2015
“For me, more than yoga is the spiritual connection of my body, my soul and my faith in God. No matter what religion you are in, this class is the fulfilment of my week for my day-to-day challenges. Jo is a blessing and illuminated spiritual person that brings light to my life and make my way on earth better and better … Now I can’t live without Holy Yoga!”
~Mary Ramirez, Graphic Designer, 3rd September 2015
“Today is my 3rd lesson in Holy Yoga. I found it amazingly good both physically, mentally and spiritually. How good is that we can relax, worship our God while doing excercise. I was having a very bad headache from yesterday but it has totally gone after the lesson. Every time when I came back from holy yoga, my husband said he could easily tell from my face and asked me to do it everyday.”
~ Mabel Lam, Retiree, 28th August 2015
“Thank you, Jo for such an awesome class this morning. Such a blessing to incorporate fellowship and a workout! You are an incredibly anointed lady and I cannot wait for the next class. Thank you”

“What an amazing class Jo holds everytime! A great reminder of things I should be practicing everyday not only physically but mentally as well as spiritually. Highly recommended for those who want a little more than just a yoga practice with added Holiness.”
~Julia Lin, Floristry Business Owner at Itty Blooms, 14th August 2015
“I attended Jo’s Holy Yoga class last week and I felt very happy after the class. Not only did I exercised and did some really good stretches, I also got to meditate on God’s word! Jo started the class with reading out the verse from the Bible, Colossians 3:12-14 and asked us to mediate the words that stood out to us. Through out the class Jo reminded us of God’s grace and love for us and that our body is the temple of God, therefore it is important for us to give thanks to God and take care of our bodies. I could really feel the sense of Holy Spirit filled in the room! It was an amazing experience! Thank you Josephine Lau for such a wonderful class and customizing the class for me, the stretches really help me loosen my tight shoulders!!”
~ Julie Tan, Stay-at-Home Mum, 9th August 2015
