Josephine, or "Jo" is the Founder of Grace x Strength, a mother of 2 boys married to her best friend and currently living in Sydney, Australia. Serving as an Ambassador at Migraine Australia, Jo is also a Chronic Migraine Warrior who is eager to raise awareness of this poorly understood condition and severe impacts it has on many lives.
After 1000+ hours of yoga training since 2015 and lots of teaching,Grace x Strength was founded in 2017 from a burning passion to help people experience yoga as a way to find strength, balance, healing and spiritual connection with God from a Biblical perspective.
She started her career as a digital marketer and held leadership roles with a number of global technology and media businesses before entering into a different season of life with the birth of her children. She found yoga online, learning the art & science of it through her guru, Briohny Smyth , when Bri was teaching prenatal yoga online in 2014. Since then, she became a dedicated practitioner.
The joys and challenges of adapting to motherhood and career ambitions fuelled her passion to empower women in business and wellness; hence, her transitioning into vocational yoga teaching.
She is motivated by seeing the healing and transformation journeys of lives who have been touched by the programs and content she offers, both digitally and through live experiences.
She finds joy in sharing her experiences with fellow mums who share the struggles of balancing motherhood responsibilities with living out their calling, especially with those who suffer from chronic illness.
