Before becoming a meditation teacher Jo worked in rehabilitation managing people with physical injuries, anxiety and depression. She then switched to the role of mum, and began to enjoy all that motherhood had to offer, although it was not as straightforward as she had anticipated! With no family support, a husband who worked long hours and a personality prone to worrying and overthinking, Jo soon came to realise she was battling the all too familiar signs of anxiety and depression in herself.
At times she found herself navigating the world feeling exhausted, irritable, indecisive, anxious, impatient and frustrated. Not sleeping well, coming up against repetitive thought patterns and the same old criticisms of herself. Noticing a downward spiral at home, with a marriage in need of attention and a child also with anxiety, Jo was having to dig deep to support her family, but ultimately found that it is hard to give, when you have nothing left in the tank.
With meditation increasingly recognized as a tool for greater wellbeing, she decided to give it a try. Within weeks of practicing Jo was noticing a shift. Feelings of joy and contentment were creeping back into her life like some kind of sneaky magic… this idea that meditation is good for you was starting to ring true! She found herself flowing through the day with more energy, more clarity of mind, more love and compassion for herself and others, more happiness and less snappiness!
Jo became passionate about helping others experience the benefits of Vedic Meditation and trained as a teacher graduating in India. She is now on mission to debunk the myth that meditation is difficult and to create awareness about how easy it can be. Jo is delighted to be helping anyone who gets the feeling that meditation might be just what they need.
Jo lives in Sydney, Australia.
