Jojo, along with her husband Jerome, are the founders of Yangon Yoga House. A New Yorker at heart, Jojo discovered yoga in 2007 as a means of releasing stress while traveling across America as a management consultant. In 2014, she left her corporate job in London to chase her dreams of wearing leggings professionally, receiving her 200-hour teaching certification in Bali from Vidya Heisel, founder of Frog Lotus Yoga. Shortly afterwards, she landed in Myanmar and hasn't worn a pencil skirt ever since. Jojo has attended trainings in yin yoga with David Kim, mandala vinyasa & tripsichore with The Yoga People London, yoga therapeutics with Daphne Chua as well as many immersions and workshops. She encourages students to take the best of every yoga lineage and guidance in order to make the yoga practice work for the individual, and believes in functionality over tradition.
