MEET YOUR TEACHERS
Echo Yoga Founder & Teacher
Josephine started her journey into yoga from a very young age, gazing at candles and holding strange shapes in freezing cold village halls from the age of 8.
She came back to yoga in her 20's. Having her emotional and physical wellbeing damaged by a career in performing, and training that did not cover mental health, she sought refuge on the mat. After her first class, the relief she felt was palpable.
She has been on a mission ever since, to better understand the patterns of her mind, to find compassion for others and find ways to elevate depression and general feelings of loss and disconnection.
In 2014 she trained in India, at the Vinyasa Yoga School, where she was taught by exceptional teachers. Her studies covered Hatha, Vinyasa, Meditation, Pranayama and the Anatomy. Since then she has added onto her training in Yin, Yoga Nidra, Pregnancy Yoga and Sound-bath Healing.
Josephine teaches from a place of compassion, care, and attention. She believes Yoga is a valuable tool, using the wisdom of the East to calm the maddening nature of the West. It is a brilliant way to access better health, wellbeing, and encourages a more mindful way of life.
In a safe, protected space, she will guide you through the practice with added attention to the breath, alignment and the inner voice.
Yoga is very much a journey and Josephine can guarantee her classes can help guide you along the way.
After falling in love with yoga and experiencing first hand how truly life-changing this practice can be, Nikki completed her 200 hours of Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh, India. She aims to share with her students all of the amazing benefits that yoga can bring to their physical and mental health.
Nikki's classes are centred around creating strength and mobility in the body whilst maintaining a deep internal awareness of the breath and how the movements feel.
